PKR sign Simon Hemsworth
Online poker room PKR have signed British pro Simon Hemsworth.
A regular in the site’s highest no-limit hold’em cash games, the 29-year-old’s favoured format is six-max $5/$10 NLHE.
The London-based player, whose signing was revealed at PKR Live 2013, actually began his Team PKR Pro career at the televised PKR.com London Cash Game.
Known as “Rhymenoceros”, Hemsworth joins a PKR roster which includes EPT champion Vladimir Geshkenbein and WSOP Europe bracelet holder Scott Shelley.
“I feel very privileged to be asked to be the new Team PKR Pro,” said Hemsworth.
“I want to help represent a brand I have had great affection for over the last few years.
“I have played almost exclusively on PKR for a long time now and made some great friends here.
“One of my main aims is to improve my live tournament record, so let’s hope for deep runs in the near future.”
