(PRESS RELEASE) -- PokerStars today announced the signing of Jeff Gross as the newest member of Team PokerStars Pro. Gross will play on PokerStars.com, an Amaya Inc. brand, under the Stars ID Jeff Gross and Jeff Gross NJ.

Gross, who has more than $1 million in online tournament winnings and $2.9 million in live cashes, today enters the WSOP Main Event patched up as a member of Team PokerStars Pro, looking to make a big splash. A passionate enthusiast of the game, Gross has been received well on Twitch where he has run up 29,000 followers and 1.69 million views at his Poker Flow Show channel, which can be found at JeffGrossPoker.

People want to have a good time. People want to play a game that has skill with an element of luck and enjoy themselves. I'm passionate about poker, I'm passionate about growing the game, and that's what's important."
