The on-going Team PokerStars Pro Online Week offers the online players to interact with the existing Team Online members as well as apply for joining this elite group. The promotion running across this week on PokerStars brings 5 different ways of interacting with Team Online pros as well as an opportunity for selected class of players on the site to take a shot at becoming the Team Online Pro.
If you’re a Supernova player on PokerStars, you might have got an invite in your mailbox to apply for the Team Online. Meanwhile, Luka “LukaSteel” Kovač answers to every curious brain in the online poker space on the process of becoming a PokerStars Team Online Pro in a blog titled How To Make Team PokerStars Pro Online. He writes:
I got asked a myriad of questions during my livestream ramblings in the last year or so, but the most asked one by far is “How do you get in Team Pro Online?” One would think that in situations like this, the way it goes is, “Don’t call us, we’ll call you.” But that is actually not the case here. Every year during the Team Pro Online week, Supernovas have a chance of filling out an application to become a member of our team. And you know what? It’s that time of the year again!”
This is exactly how I’ve got that Red Spade displayed by my name on the tables. I filled out an application and was chosen among 500 other online grinders. I play Limit Hold’em, and PokerStars didn’t have an ambassador for this niche variant at that point.It also helped that my country Slovenia wasn’t represented yet, so there was definitely some luck involved. Even though I could have filled out an application in the years before, I didn’t do it. But I did send one that particular year.
