Team PKR Pro Daniel 'danshreddies' O'Callaghan

Team PKR Pro Daniel 'danshreddies' O'Callaghan Last year, Daniel O’Callaghan finished runner-up at the PKR Live Mixed Max $500 event for $14,016, before in March 2015 taking down the £300 PKR Live Main Event at Aspers Casino for £19,000 ($28,222). However, it is not just O’Callaghan’s accomplishment of reaching consecutive final tables at two of PKR’s live main events that landed him a lucrative sponsorship deal with the site in April.
The 27-year old pro has also been a regular at PKR since 2008, during which time he has amassed more than $49,074 on the site under the screen name ‘danshreddies’, as well as $120,011 at PokerStars, $18,389 at Full Tilt, and $9,176 at PartyPoker. Furthermore, O’Callaghan is an active member of the PKR community, and regularly contributes to its strategy section, when he is not running his own Twitch channel. Needless to say, O’Callaghan’s joining Team PKR Pro was a perfect fit all round, and after announcing the news he commented:
“I’m as thrilled as I am flattered to be asked to become part of the team. Just as people dream of playing for their favourite football team, I wanted to be a part of Team PKR Pro when I joined PKR.. I just hope I can repay PKR’s faith by stepping up to the plate and delivering. Fingers crossed for a heater.”
At the time, O’Callaghan also took time to thank a number of former Team Pros who helped his development as a poker player, including Sascha Walter, Sofia Lovgren and Simon Hemsworth, all of whom provided him with honest feedback and advice on his many strategy articles. Following his appointment, Daniel O’Callaghan became part of a talented team consisting of Patty ‘BabyTes’ Beaumier, and Eleanor “Elz442” Gudger.
PKR was founded by Jez San in 2006,  and the site’s distinctive 3D graphics and animations has helped it grow in popularity ever since. In 2008, PKR subsequently received the eGaming “Hotshot operator of the year” award, and the site currently boasts a total player base in the millions. According to PokerScout, PKR is showing an average of 200 cash game players over a 7-day period.
