Jason Alexander Signs With Poker Stars

Poker Royalty announced today that famed Seinfeld actor Jason Alexander signed an exclusive sponsorship agreement with Poker Stars, the world’s largest online poker room. As part of his new brand ambassador role for Poker Stars, Mr. Alexander will represent the Poker Stars brand in online and live poker events, including the 2009 World Series of Poker and on the various Poker Stars global poker tour circuits.

Jason Alexander joins a Poker Stars team of international celebrity ambassadors that includes National Hockey League (NHL) player Mats Sundin, past Wimbledon champion Boris Becker, and former Cy Young Award winner Orel Hershiser, a Poker Royalty client. Jason will play online as “J. Alexander” on PokerStars.com.

“Poker Stars has very graciously asked me to sign on as one of their official players. I am very flattered and happy to be playing for a real quality site and with the kind of professionals that remind me every day how truly mediocre I am at this game. But I’m learning. And now I can learn from some of the best,” Jason Alexander said.

An avid poker player, Jason Alexander has appeared in the 2008 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, Bravo’s Celebrity Poker Showdown, and ESPN’s broadcast of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event, an event he has played for the last three years. Jason will also appear in an upcoming episode of NBC’s late-night show Poker After Dark.
