And the happy family that is Team PokerStars Pros keeps on growing. Not too long after their latest free agent acquisition, JC Alvarado, PokerStars has already signed up another big name to carry its flag and colors for the well-respected site.

Johnny Lodden, a Norwegian poker phenomenon of only 24 years of age, has been playing online at PokerStars for years, with undeniably impressive results. It was simply a matter of time before he got chosen to represent the card room.

Johnny Lodden, according to the PokerStars blog, has been a familiar face on the high stakes tables ever since he was just a tender 20 years of age. His first live cash was in 2006 in an European Poker Tour event. To date, Lodden has cashed an additional 8 times in the EPT events, and usually participates in every event.

His screenname on PokerStars is quite predictably (you can also qualify it as lack of imagination) “johnnylodden.” Lodden is also very active in online communities, as evidenced by the fact that he owns and maintains his own blog (again, no imagination), with all sorts of updates and tidbits about his life on the poker circuit.

Johnny Lodden joins the long list of poker pros that PokerStars has, which include 3 main event champions, numerous bracelet winners, feared cash game specialists and soon to be poker hall-of-famers.

Join me in wishing Johnny Lodden the best in his new path, and dream that one day, it can happen to you too!
