The NBC televised poker program "Poker After Dark" took a hit this week with the announcement that the world's largest online poker operation, PokerStars, hs withdrawn its team from the event.
 
Online poker information portal WickedChopsPoker reports that PokerStars recently informed its players of the decision, which is thought to have been prompted by differences over marketing with second largest online poker provider Full Tilt Poker, which sponsors the show.
