Meet Our Sponsor
This TSL is sponsored by PokerStrategy.com, the world's largest poker school and community. Founded by Dominik "[pG]Korn" Kofert, one of the best old school German StarCraft players, PokerStrategy.com has several former TeamLiquid members on its staff, including former WCG Grand Finals Qualifier Robbie "ToT)Strafe( Verspui and top German Zerg Simon "SoL.Schnibl0r" Münz.
With hundreds of Poker VODs and an assortment of learning material in 18 different languages, PokerStrategy.com offers the chance for aspiring Poker players to learn from a beginner to professional level, built around a cooperative, helpful community.
A few words from their founder, Dominik:
We sponsored the TSL for two reasons, because StarCraft is the best game and it deserves big tournaments, and because we strongly believe that everyone who likes StarCraft should try Poker. It's similar to a challenging RTS, but one where you can win money too.
The best thing about Poker is that it's easier to be successful than StarCraft. You don't have to be one of the top ten non-Koreans. You just have to beat the players at your table. I'm convinced that even someone who only understands StarCraft from a fan's perspective (and is "too slow" to even be C on ICCup) can still become a great poker player. Many big and small names from the StarCraft community now call Poker their hobby, or even their profession.
So we’d be happy if the sponsorship were also a success for our poker community, and would love it if you at least gave PokerStrategy.com a try! For legal reasons, we sadly have to exclude all US citizens/residents from our offers.
But our most important message to the TeamLiquid community is this: enjoy the fantastic TSL – we surely will!
PokerStrategy.com staff will be on TL to answer your questions about their site, their community, and poker in general in the PokerStrategy Q&A Thread
