PKR Signs Patty Beaumier as Sponsored Pro
The online poker site PKR has announced that it has signed the small stakes cash grinder Patty Beaumier as one of its sponsored pros.
24 year-old Beaumier has a Masters in law from the Sorbonne and is presently studying for a second Masters at the graduate School of Journalism in Paris.
However, poker has been one of her passions ever since she began playing on PKR in 2011.
Over the last few years Beaumier has shown herself to be a consistent winner in lower stakes games and now, having been selected to represent the poker room, she will have the chance to take her game to the next level.
PKR CEO, Malcolm Graham, said, “Our sponsorship approach has largely been to unearth and support talent from our players’ ranks, and it’s important that those with potential at the lower stakes get the chance to shine.”
When asked what it was like to become a Team PKR Pro Beaumier said, “I didn’t dare to believe it when I was asked to join the Team. I think it will only sink in when I hear the floor say “shuffle up and deal” at my first live event in the colours of PKR.”
