lolololol...can't believe it...he will be crushed...can't wait to see some handhistories with him as villain....this will be fun..he really is among the most famous people here in germany, perhaps place 2 or 3 but surely in the top 5 but he is not known for being very intelligent (and thats kind of an understatement)...dont know if this is known internationally, but i can remember that some years ago a pregnant women accused him of being the father of her unborn child and he meant it was sperm-theft...lolololol
and some weeks later, after he made himself to a joke with that comment which was press-released he said something like
i can't be the father, i only slept with her for some secounds...lololololol

I remember filling in some online questionnaire that popped up when i started the PS client. It was about Boris Becker and contained questions about if you know who he is and whether or not it would be a good idea to sign him for Team Pokerstars. Apparently the PS population thought it is a good idea (and i agree). The questionnaire was probably only offered to Euros.

Almost definitely not the same guy, but one of the Ongame high-stakes NL guys plays under name B3risB3cker (or something like that) and is nasty. Haven't seen him in a few mos. though.

Well he is my all time favorite player and as a kid I spent countless of hours watching and rooting for him.

So many great matches. Won and lost.

But unlike some other players, like Kafelnikov, I'd never heard of him playing poker though and I'm definitely not expecting that we'll see him online at all.

More likely only at EPT events in Germany and the big one in Monte Carlo.

Boris was the hero of my childhood, I got goose bumps watching him fight in wimbledon. He was such an amazing player, always gave 100%, showed his emotions and was very likable. In terms of charisma, todays tennis players are nothing compared to him. In Germany he is still like in every TV show, he loves to go to big events and parties. So as an advertiser he is a very good choice. His contract has to be very high, he is a living legend.
