During the 300th celebratory episode of the “Poker in the Ears” podcast that was recorded live at the Hippodrome Casino in London, James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton made a surprising announcement.

The two announced 2024 EPT Paris champion and British poker icon Barny Boatman as the freshest member to join the prestigious Pokerstars Team Pro.

The news comes less than three weeks after Boatman scooped up a €1.2 million cash prize in Paris.

PokerStars chief executive officer Kevin Harrington expressed their delight to welcome the player to the PokerStars family, praising his “reputation as one of the most respected and accomplished players in the industry”.

Harrington also expressed confidence that Boatman’s “insights and contributions will be invaluable” for their plans to keep innovating and growing.

The player, who is considered one of the most esteemed UK poker players in history, will next attend the Irish Poker Open. The last time he was there, in 2006, he joined the final table.

Boatman: “It’s An Honor”

Commenting on the excellent news, Boatman said he was “really excited about being involved with PokerStars“.

He also called it an

honor to be connected with people like Sam Grafton and the Spraggy family. I play on PokerStars and everybody knows the fantastic software and how trusted it is as a site. But it goes deeper than that because I was around at the beginning of the EPT

Boatman boasts a second-place finish in a WSOP bracelet event in 2002, a final table performance at the 2009 Aussie Millions, 13th position in the 2010 WSOP Europe Main Event, a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em bracelet won in 2013, a third-position finish in another $1,500 Limit Hold’em bracelet event in 2015 and another bracelet in an €550 Pot Limit Omaha event in 2015.
