PokerStars held a contest giving players and readers a chance to guess who their next Team PokerStars Online member was going to be. If you guessed “philivey2694” on the Twitter stream (@PSTeamOnline), you were dead on.

PokerStars made the announcement today that Isaac Haxton is the newest member of Team PokerStars Online. Haxton became part of the team that includes Shane “shaniac” Schleger, Randy “nanonoko” Lew, Adrienne “talonchick” Rowsome, Mickey “mement_mori” Peterson and others. Haxton says he believes in what the world’s most popular poker site represents.

“I’m excited for the new opportunities this partnership brings,” Haxton said of the deal. “I’m not just playing for myself now – I’m representing a team and a brand. That brings new opportunities and new responsibilities.”

Haxton recorded his first career live score in 2007 at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, taking second place to Ryan Daut in the $10,000 Main Event where he earned $861,789. Haxton made the final table in the 2012 PCA $25,000 High Roller where he finished third and took home $380,730.

With 23 cashes at the World Series of Poker, his biggest career score is his second-place finish in the $40,000 40th Anniversary event for $1,168,565.

“I want to make Supernova Elite in 2012 playing mostly heads-up sit-and-gos,” Haxton added. “I also want to learn Pot Limit Omaha and play some heads-up No Limit Hold’em cash matches.”

Haxton was the challenger in three heads-up No Limit Holdem cash matches against Viktor “Isildur1” Blom in the PokerStars SuperStar Showdown. The first two meetings found Haxton winning a combined $46,800 from Blom but Blom turned it around and took $500,000 from Haxton and won the $1 Million Challenge.

Haxton will now be known as "Ike Haxton" and the "philivey2694" handle will float out of existence into the online poker jet stream. interviewed Haxton on his new gig with PokerStars and more. Read the interview.
