While the group is heavy on Team PokerStars Pros they’re all high profile players with good reputations in the industry and there’s no reason to doubt their ability to be objective. PokerStars works pretty hard at maintaining its image as a player-friendly site, so the Council’s advice to the company should pack a punch.

The group will be meeting up for the first time in Barcelona in September ahead of the ninth season of the European Poker Tour. They’ll meet again, this time in Monte Carlo, at the end of the tour.
