Becker's eyes look creepy in the first photo.
I saw him play at a tournement in Cincinnati many years ago...but he was playing tennis, not poker.

This is all stupid.

i smell poker bust soon...common who gives a rats ass about some wanker who used to play tennis in germany??? honestly. They going to sign the canadian curling team? WTF?? I hate they star signings. and i'm sure he got sqadidly in terms of money. probably live tournament buy-ins are paid for and he gets stars money and maybe a small cheque on the side. still pretty good for being washed up though!

They need to sign Sebastien Chabal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chabal

"would have much preferred to have spent his 29th birthday yesterday at home playing online poker."

Well he is still huge in germany. Except for Michael Schumacher, probably still the biggest name.
When he turned 40 a few days ago it seemed to be a big deal and he was certainly on all the german tv channels that I*m unfortunate to have on my tv.

I'm sure if anyone can bring even more germans to pokerstars, it's Boris.
Even in other european countries, the Uk too where he has been Wimbledon commentator, he is still a bigger name than I think 99 percent of active tennis players and certainly bigger than any poker player.

So like someone said, a huge signing that can't have been cheap, unless Boris really loves poker I guess.
I know he has had huge deals in the past with big sponsors like Mercedes.

This is incredible news, I've been on the online poker sidelines for the past few years waiting to see which site would sign up Boris Becker. Now that Stars has signed him, I'm going to open an account there. I need help with rakeback, funding options, etc. What would be a good place on this forum for this? Thanks and cya at the tables!!
