Karl Fenton joins PKR.com pro team

Wednesday, 17 June 2009

Karl ‘Discomonkey’ Fenton is the latest player to join the pro ranks at PKR.com. The 23-year-old, who has taken a break from his finance degree to play full time, earned his big break in the PKR Sunday Classic in November last year which he won for a $7,500 score. He’s continued that fine form throughout 2009 with online tournament winnings topping the $200,000 mark.

His live form hasn’t been too shabby either with a win in the PKR.com Live II Main Event for $20,000 plus a final table appearance in a side event at GUKPT Walsall.

Fenton, who is currently at the WSOP trying to add to an already impressive British bracelet haul said “Quite honestly the first career I have ever been able to see myself making a real success out of was poker. It is something I have a deep interest in and something I have begun to make work. Hopefully this opportunity with PKR will prove to be the springboard to a lifetime of success in the game. Why not start in Vegas?”

Team PKR pro James Sudworth has already made a WSOP final table this year with fellow pros Kai Paulsen and Andrew Teng also making the money.
