Razer, one of the world's pioneering supporters of e-Sports, and Marcel "The Flying Dutchman" Luske, one of the world's most recognized and respected professional poker players, have formed an exploratory partnership to see how Razer can impact the world of online poker.

In 2001, Marcel went from playing poker in market cafes to contesting hands at professional tables, and has since amassed more than USD$4,085,000 in live tournament winnings. With a top-10 finish at the 'World Series of Poker' and 20-some-odd additional 1st place finishes, Marcel already stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the most prominent names in poker history.

Why would anyone care what some poker player thinks, or more appropriately paid to think, about a laptop.

Just an insanely stupid example of modern marketing.

Does this make us better at poker or gaming? They should make a poker stars edition with real green felt poker table cloth on the hand rest and keys!

What is this ad trying to say really?

Poker players are gamblers.
Some say buying razer products is a gamble.

Or is it this pro poker player would without a doubt gamble his money on the quality of this razer product?

Otherwise a Pro poker player in a ad with a laptop made by a company which bases it's hardware around gaming makes little sense to me.
