RedKings.com has recently announced the signing of WSOP bracelet winner Ivo “the chessmaster” Donev and Aussie Millions sensation Christian Heich to Team RedKings.
These signings come at a very hectic time for RedKings Poker. They have recently acquired their Gibraltar issued white label European License through Ongame. At the same time, the RedKings Team was flying into Copenhagen to compete in the EPT Scandinavia.
Ivo Donev is the most successful Austrian live tournament poker player of all time with winnings in excess of $1 million. He won the Limit Omaha WSOP event in 2000 and can be seen wearing his bracelet in all the big tournaments he currently plays in. This World Champion is with Team RedKings in Copenhagen this week.
Christian Heich’s recent successes include finishing in the top 20 of the Aussie Millions Main Event, as well as winning one of the side events. This sensational young German made his mark in Australia and is now definitely the player to watch for the future.
RedKings Live Events Manager, Jerry Land, commented, “In just 2 years RedKings has already achieved meteoric growth and it’s great to have good players wanting to join us in making RedKings one of the biggest poker rooms in the world. Signing both the Austrian World Champion and Christian Heich, one of the most highly rated young players of the year, makes it a fantastic week for Team RedKings.”
He continued, “Along with getting our new EU License we couldn’t have wished for anything better at the start of the EPT in Copenhagen. We know these new players will join our pros Ramzi, Molle and Toni Ojala to lead the Team to new heights in 2009.”
