Thursday October 18, 2012 : HAXTON JOINS POKERSTARS PROFESSIONAL PLAYER TEAM
 
Now based on Malta, Haxton has easier access to European action
 
High-profile poker pro Isaac Haxton has joined the Pokerstars professional player team, the Isle of Man company announced Thursday.
 
Although a native of New York City, the legal situation in post-Black Friday America persuaded Haxton to relocate to the Mediterranean island of Malta, a convenient and central location with easy access to other EU nations.
 
He has amassed a fortune of around $4 million in career earnings since first bursting onto the online and live tournament scene in 2007.
