Luka Kovac gives answer of a question that was in the minds of several poker players regarding the path to becoming a member of Team PokerStars Pro Online in a blog titled How To Make Team PokerStars Pro Online.
The poker player from Slovania begins by talking about how he became this exclusive team’s members by going for it during Team Pro Online week and how he was being selected among five-hundred applicants. He thinks that he was selected as Slovenia was not being represented on the list and the fact that he plays generally limit hold’em, a variant of poker not widely played by other members of the team members.
The whole time of Kovac’s tale is not really coincidental, as Team Pro Online week would happen later in the month with several interesting promotions. This is also your chance on PokerStars to apply to potentially become the next member of Team PokerStars Pro Online if you are a supernova or higher.
