American professional poker player, Randy “nanonoko” Lew has announced that he is no longer an ambassador for PokerStars.
The multi-tabling legend went on to social media to announce his departure from the room today.
Nanonoko took the poker world by storm crushing online poker by playing millions of hands online to achieve SuperNova Elite six times between 2007-2013. He achieved this feat by 24-tabling 6-Max NLHE cash games and eventually leading him to become Team PokerStars.
In 2009, the online poker legend surpassed the $1 million mark in cash game earnings – a rare milestone.
He also holds a Guinness World Record for playing 23,493 online hands in eight hours and ending up profitable.
This year alone we have seen a flurry of Team PokerStars members leave the company. First to announce was Jeff Gross who left the company after serving the room for nearly 18 months. He has now joined the rival partypoker’s newly created “Team Online”.
Within 24 hours of Jeff’s announcement, Jaime Staples was the next to announce his departure. Staples had been with the company for 4 years. He is set to join partypoker’s Team Online beginning May 4.
We have also reasons to believe that Barry Greenstein “the Robin Hood of poker” is no longer Team Pro of PokerStars. Although Barry has yet to officially make an announcement, his name can no longer be seen on PokerStars Team Pro webpage.
