By: PSO Professor @ 08:54 (EDT) / 380 / Comment ( 1 )

PokerStars today announced the signing of Jeff Gross as the newest member of Team PokerStars Pro. Gross will play on PokerStars under the Stars ID ‘Jeff Gross’ and ‘Jeff Gross NJ’.

Gross, who has more than $1 million in online tournament winnings and $2.9 million in live cashes, today enters the WSOP Main Event patched up as a member of Team PokerStars Pro looking to make a big splash. A passionate enthusiast of the game, Gross has been received well on Twitch where he has run up 29,000 followers and 1.69 million views at his Poker Flow Show channel, which can be found at ‘JeffGrossPoker’.

In October last year, Gross participated in a 24/7 stream-a-thon for seven days to raise money for Michael Phelps Charitable Foundation alongside Team PokerStars Online members Jamie Staples and Kevin Martin. Gross is a friend and former roommate of the Olympic swimmer. Gross also participated in Bill Perkins’ StreamBoat extravaganza.

GOOD TIME GROSS
In an exclusive interview with PokerStars Blog, which can be read here, Gross said he’s looking forward to streaming on Twitch as a PokerStars sponsored ambassador, “You've got to remember fundamentally what it's all about. People want to have a good time. People want to play a game that has skill with an element of luck and enjoy themselves. I'm passionate about poker, I'm passionate about growing the game, and that's what's important.”

Eric Hollreiser, Director of Corporate Communications at PokerStars, said, “We are delighted that Jeff has signed up to the team, joining Igor Kurganov as another top quality poker pro entering the ranks of Team PokerStars Pro this year. Jeff’s passion, enthusiasm and poker credibility makes this is a great partnership.”

Gross is currently in Las Vegas at the WSOP and will be heading to Barcelona in August for PokerStars Championship Barcelona.
