Vladmir “beyne” Geshkenhein signs for PKR as new pro.

Friday, 27 November 2009

Next generation online poker site PKR have signed another PKR pro – Russian high roller Vladmir “beyne” Geshkenhein made his name famous when he took down the APPT High Roller event for $266,000 earlier this year. After following this up with a $120,000 victory in the PKR Heads-Up Grand Slam against Juha Helppi, he has signed with PKR.

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.”

Geshkenhein honed his skills on PKR, deciding to turn pro in January 2009 when he moved to Malta to play professionally. Since then his two major live tournament victories have put his name on the map and made him a more than worthy choice for PKR’s pro team.

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!"
