“I’m very excited about joining Team PKR Pro” said Cody. “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.”
Cody is a startlingly 22-years young and already he's accomplished incredible feats, like winning over $3 million in lifetime earnings, and being the youngest of poker's four triple crown winners (a World Series of Poker Bracelet, European Poker Tour and World Poker Tour titles). Pulling a triple crown is an amazing feat on its own, but to make it even more impressive, he won his triple crown with due speed when he completed the task in an unheard of 520 days.
The Cinderella Story is running strong in Jake Cody's corner - he deposited just $10 in an online poker account when he first discovered the game and has managed to go on to turn his small investment into a big fortune. Cody has proven himself at the highest levels of the game after winning four major live titles and many other online tournaments. Cody is a true champion for European poker.
Not only will Cody represent PKR in the biggest poker tournaments around the world, Cody will add another facet to the diamond by contributing to the renowned PKR Community and providing new content to PKR's growing media offering. Sunday night will find the young British star rubbing elbows with PKR's players for the first time at the virtual felt. Find him and beat him in two Bounty Day tournaments where busting him out is worth $100 to you.
Marketing Director Simon Prodger commented, “We’re delighted to welcome Jake to the Team. He is the future of poker, a perfect example of the new breed of players who are taking the game to new heights. We’re really excited that PKR’s players will have the opportunity to interact with Jake and benefit from his insight and experience.”
Cody is joining a group of young stars as he becomes the seventh member of Team PKR Pro. The stable of pros at PKR is very impressive - EPT champion Vladimir ‘Beyne’ Geshkenbein, Sofia ‘welllbet’ Lovgren, Marc ‘Waswini’ Bariller, Sascha ‘locodice’ Walter, James ‘james666’ Sudworth and WSOP Europe bracelet holder Scott ‘PKR_Scott’ Shelley; they've moved up through PKR's player community and won APPT, WSOP, and EPT titles.
