New PKR Team Pro to Be Revealed!

PKR to announce the latest addition to Team PKR Pro

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 1, 2010) - A buzz is building at PKR towers as we prepare to announce the tenth member to join Team PKR Pro, a group of emerging young poker stars which already boasts GUKPT, APT, APPT and Heads Up Grand Slam champions. We're not ready to reveal any names yet, but the latest member has again been chosen from the site's growing group of online poker pros, and will add further weight to a team bursting with cash game prowess and big hopes for further major poker tournament glory.

The new signing's first mission in PKR colours will see them head to Dublin at the beginning of April for the Irish Open. They'll be joined by fellow Team PKR Pros Ray 'callmebabe' O'Mahoney, Henrik 'Pokey85' Eklund and Karl 'discomonkey' Fenton as they attempt to improve on Norwegian Team Pro Kai 'kingkai84' Paulsen's fifth place worth €175,000 in 2008.
