LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- Online poker room PKR has announced the arrival of its latest Team PKR Pro, British professional poker player Eleanor Gudger. The 31-year old was unveiled on Friday before play began on Day 1 of the $500 PKR Live Mixed Max event held at London's Aspers Stratford casino.
Known online as 'Elz442', the law graduate from Leicester is one of the most successful tournament players in the site's history, and has two WSOP final tables to her name.
Gudger began her online poker journey at PKR in 2007, progressing from a $1 freeroll cash to amassing more than $225,000 in tournament earnings including an $18,000 win in the site's most prestigious monthly event, the PKR Masters. Inducted into the site's Hall of Fame in 2013 because of her online and live results coupled with her contribution to the site's community, Gudger remains one of the site's brightest young stars and will now compete on poker's biggest stage including the 2014 World Series of Poker.
"Elz has been a key part of the fabric of our player community for years" said PKR's Dan Grant, "in which time she has become a talented tournament specialist. It was just a matter of time before she joined our Team and we can't wait to watch her tear up the live scene in the coming months".
Gudger is the second female law graduate to join Team PKR Pro in recent times following the arrival of PKR.fr ambassador Patty Beaumier last year. Other Team Pro colleagues include recent UKIPT High Roller finalist Simon Hemsworth, WSOP Europe bracelet holder Scott Shelley and Road to Team Pro competition winner Steven Richner.
