PokerStars.net signs Dee as spokesperson
Online poker site PokerStars.net has signed television personality Gerry Dee as a spokesperson in Canada. Dee will appear in Canadian television commercials for the service and at live tournaments. A commercial featuring Dee will air through the fall to promote a series of online poker tournaments in which Canadians can win a trip to play poker in the Bahamas. PokerStars has also become the title sponsor of the Gerry Dee Comedy Tour. "I'm better at math and statistics than the teacher you see on TV, so I'm not a bad poker player," said Dee. "I'm no pro but I've always been a bit of a poker buff. I really admire the skill it takes to compete at the top level. I'm excited about this partnership and am looking forward to improving my game."
