Swedish woman joins Team PKR Pro

30 March 2010

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Team PKR Pro today proudly welcomes its latest arrival, 20 year old professional poker player Sofia 'welllbet' Lövgren from Gothenburg, Sweden.

The first female player to join the ten-strong Team, 'welllbet' has been a regular at PKR's cash game tables since joining in March 2008, emerging as one of the biggest earners from the site's growing group of future female stars. She hopes to emulate fellow Swede Isildur1's astonishing success later in her career, but for now is content with the grind at the mid-stakes full ring tables.

Her first live tournament assignment sees her head to Dublin later this week, joining six fellow Team PKR Pros at the €3500 buy-in Irish Poker Open.

"It's a pleasure to be the first female on the Team,' says Sofia. 'It's a very good opportunity for me to get to play big live tournaments and take my online game to the live scene. Playing poker and travelling are my favourite things, so this will be a great experience.'

'For my online poker I have a clear goal - to double my cash game bankroll this year. You will see me grinding at the tables, feeding on the fish. I'm also going to play the Irish Open this week and some other tournaments including the upcoming UKIPT events, with another goal being to get some good tournament finishes. It'd be nice to be the first winner of a big live event who can't shuffle their chips." PKR's Marketing Manager Erika Schwartz adds, "It's fantastic to have Sofia on board. She is a top cash player with a lot of potential. We think she can go far, and this is only the beginning. Keep your eye on this girl for big things in the future."
