Where Are The Pros? #1

Poker-player World MapWelcome to a new feature on Backdoor Quads which aims to tell you where the professional players are around the world this month and what they are getting up to.

Daniel Negreanu

Fresh from the PCA and back in Sin City, Kid Poker’s focus recently has been firmly on bringing an NHL franchise to Las Vegas. He recently posted on his blog that he was “personally quite excited about the prospects of an NHL team in Las Vegas and I believe strongly that not only will we get a team, but that hockey will work in this sports starved city.” Backed by the enthusiasm of Negreanu we will have to watch this space!

Jake Cody

Fresh from cashing in the PCA High-Roller, Jake Cody is back on the tournament scene at the UKIPT London. The 12 event festival runs from the 20-25th January with the Main Event starting on the 21st.

Victoria Coren-Mitchell & Mickey Petersen

Joining Jake Cody in the UKIPT High Roller are EPT regulars Victoria Coren-Mitchell & Mickey Petersen. The only two-time winner of an EPT is juggling work on her TV show ‘Only Connect,’ but always has time out for the tour. Mickey Petersen is looking to go better than his 4th place in the High Roller at UKIPT Isle of Man.

Fedor Holz

Online high stakes pro Fedor ‘CrownUpGuy’ Holz recovered from losing his passport at the PCA to get to the Aussie Millions. Running from the 14th January until the 2nd February, the festival boasts 21 events including a $100k High Roller and a $250k Super High Roller.
