PKR Signs Triple Crown Winner Jake Cody

November 18, 2011

On the heels of the Scott Shelley joining the team member, another player, UK’s Jake Cody, takes the title for the newest Team PKR sponsored pro. Cody, 22, is the youngest winner of poker’s Triple Crown. He has won first place titles at the World Poker Tour, the European Poker Tour, and the World Series of Poker. He is one of the most successful tournament players in the world and will now be representing the world’s first 3-D online poker room, the innovative PKR Poker.

Cody is actually only one of four players ever to hold the Triple Crown title, along with Bertrand Grospellier, Roland de Wolfe, and Gavin Griffin. Cody also placed 7th in the WSOP Europe Main Event this year.

Other Team PKR pro members include Sascha “locodice” Walter, Sofia “welllbet” Lovgren, Vladimir “Beyne” Geshkenbein, and Marc “Waswini” Bariller. Shelley, who was recently inducted into the PKR pro club, won a WSOP Europe back in 2010, who along with Cody, will bring some fresh attention to the PKR brand, especially at live events.

Cody says, “I’m very excited about joining Team PKR Pro. I’ve been patient with sponsorship, waiting for the right deal to come along. When I spoke to PKR I was really impressed with the whole setup and the ideas that they have going forward, and I knew straight away I wanted to be part of it! It’s a great site to be involved with right now and I think I can help take it to the next level.”
