Online poker site PKR has been a popular choice for players since their launch, as their – at the time – 3D poker platform was seen as something innovative and different, which attracted both recreational players as well as professionals. Not long after Team PKR Pro was founded and it has been one of the most successful sponsored teams ever since.
Now they have made an addition, as Russian Roman Khlan has been added to the Team PKR Pro roster . Khlan has been playing on PKR for the past four years, with the last two being as a professional poker player. Khlan is 32-years old and won a $5,000 sponsorship package through the “Road to Team Pro” competition earlier this year.
Khlan will be joining Simon Hemsworth, Eleanor Gudger and Patty Beaumier as ambassador for PKR, which will include playing live tournaments around the globe, playing online games, create strategy content, do community activities and most importantly play the €400 PKR tournament in Cannes in October.
PR head Dan Grant said, “Roman has really thrown himself into the PKR experience in recent years, so we can already tell that he’ll be a fantastic ambassador. He’s a battle-hardened online pro with talent and personality to match, and we’re looking forward to following his progress in the offline arena. Russia is an exciting poker market and we’re delighted to have Roman as our standard bearer. Bring on the bracelet!”
