Vladimir Geshkenbein is the latest big name (both literally and metaphorically) to join the professional team at PKR.com.
The 21-year-old Muscovite has a number of excellent tournament performances on his CV, most notably a win in this year’s APPT High Roller event for a score of over $260,000. He followed that by winning the PKR Heads Up Grand Slam, defeating Poker Million runner up Juha Helppi to claim a further $120,000. PKR Marketing Director Simon Prodger said, "We have been following Vladimir's progress for some time - he is an excellent poker player, charismatic, and fantastic to watch at the tables. He is a very active member in our community and consistently contributes content to our growing poker strategy repository, Raise Your Game." Matchroom Sport Managing Director Eddie Hearn, who produced the PKR Heads Up Grand Slam said, "Poker viewers are in for a real treat when they see Vladimir in action in the upcoming PKR Heads Up Grand Slam on Sky Sports in January. The game is all about personalities and 'beyne' has it in abundance... He is some player too!"
