Finnish Pro Ville Wahlbeck Joins Team PokerStars Pro

Helsinki Poker Pro With World Series of Poker Bracelet Joins Team PokerStars


Ville Wahlbeck joins Team PokerStars today announced its latest Team signing, Finnish poker pro Ville Wahlbeck.

Wahlbeck, from Helsinki, is a World Series of Poker bracelet winner taking down the $10,000 mixed game event last year for $492,384 as well as making three other final tables at the Series for over $450,000.

He is a multiple award winner and also won the high rollers event at last year’s Baltic Poker Festival and will be making his first outing as a Team PokerStars Pro at this year’s event later this month.

“PokerStars is the leading name in this field,” said Wahlbeck. "Not only because it is the world’s biggest poker site but also for other reasons: PokerStars has always taken good care of its players and has made an effort to ensure that all the players are treated equally and honestly.

“Due to these things, PokerStars has been the avant-garde of the whole game and it’s both trusted and appreciated – a reputation which is well-deserved. I am really proud to be part of Team PokerStars Pro.”
