Team PokerStars Pro Signs Eugene "MyRabbiFoo" Katchalov

It has just been announced that 29-year-old US pro Eugene Katchalov has now been added to the pantheon of Team PokerStars Pros on the site.
The Ukrainian-born player came to America aged just 10 and has lived in New York ever since. The business and finance graduate got his first experience playing poker while still at college and later, in 2004, he got his first taste of tournament poker success after cashing in at his first live event.
Since then, Eugene Katchalov has gone on to amass $6,104,132 from live tournaments, with his biggest win coming in December, 2007 after triumphing at the WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic for a $2,482,605 pay-day.
More recently, Katchalov famously beat Daniel Negreanu heads-up at the $100k PCA Super High Roller event in January for $1.5 million, and heaping praise on the PokerStars new recruit, Negreanu commented:
“Eugene has always flown under the radar, but among his peers, his game is well respected and he is considered one of the best in the world, both in tournaments and cash games. I’m thrilled to see Eugene as part of the team. He’s a great guy and an excellent poker ambassador.”
As well as his live successes, Eugene Katchalov has also built a reputation as a fearsome online player and has earned $831,118 playing under the screen name “MyRabbiFoo.”
In the past Eugene “MyRabbiFoo” Katchalov has always had a fondness for playing online at PokerStars and in 2009 won the PokerStars WCOOP heads-up event for $140,000. Katchalov said he was delighted to be now sponsored by PokerStars and commenting on the new deal, said:
“I feel very fortunate in having the opportunity to represent PokerStars. It is the largest and, in my opinion, the best-run poker site in the world, with a great team of pros. I look forward to continuing my great run in poker and helping PokerStars successfully expand and evolve within the ever-changing world of poker.”
