11 November 2011

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- On 17 November, next-gen poker room PKR is set to unveil the latest addition to Team PKR Pro, the site’s stable of sponsored professional poker players. One of the year’s most high profile signings, the new arrival is among the best poker players in the world, and will represent PKR in the biggest events across the globe.

Since Team PKR Pro was created in 2009, 13 players have flown the flag for the next-generation online poker site, each plucked from the wealth of homegrown talent which has emerged from’s tables. The current crop of six Team PKR pro stars includes EPT champion Vladimir ‘Beyne’ Geshkenbein and WSOP Europe bracelet holder Scott Shelley alongside rising stars Sofia ‘welllbet’ Lovgren, James ‘james666’ Sudworth, Sascha ‘locodice’ Walter and Marc ‘Waswini’ Bariller, a Frenchman who parlayed freeroll winnings into a successful online career. Former Team PKR Pros include GUKPT winner Andrew ‘golfpro699’ Teng and Adrien ‘zlatan35’ Allain who, after winning APT Macau as a $5 PKR qualifier, has recently gone on to claim a WPT Amneville title.

With current and former members drawn from the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Russia, Team PKR Pro has a long history of unearthing new talent from PKR’s international player base, valuing not only poker ability but the community spirit with which PKR is so strongly associated.
