Team PKR Pros Joined By Russian Star Vladimir 'beyne' Geshkenbein

Revolutionary 3D poker website PKR has announced that the new addition to their poker pro stable is none other than the 21 year poker sensation from Moscow,  Vladimir ‘beyne’ Geshkenbein.
Geshkenbein has frequently been seen playing at PKR’s cash tables but tournaments are his speciality and he recently won the inaugural PKR Heads Up Grand Slam, where he beat Juha Helppi in the final to pick up $120,000. Earlier this year he also won the Asia Pacific Poker Tour High Roller event,  for a $266,690 payday, all of which have contributed to PKR’s decision to welcome him on board.
Following the announcement, Simon Prodger, the Marketing Director for PKR, 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.”
Geshkenbein started his poker career playing low to middle stake tournaments, but by January this year had achieved consistent enough success that he decided to take up the game professionally.
Eddie Hearn, the Matchroom Sport Managing Director 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!”
Vladimir ‘beyne’ Geshkenbein now joins karl “discomonkey” Fenton and Adrian Allain as PKR sponsored pros.
