Sascha “locodice” Walter Joins Team PKR Pro
The new-gen online poker site PKR was proud to announce the signing of its first German professional poker player, Sascha ‘locodice’ Walter, this week. At 25 years of age, hailing from Stuttgart, Germany, Walter is the latest member of Team PKR Pro.
Sascha Walter signed up an account with PKR in April of 2007, thus striking up his professional poker career over the internet. Under the moniker ‘locodice’, he began by playing in SNG tournaments, having enough success to move up the buy-in levels in very little time. It wasn’t long before he found his forte at the $2/$4 to $3/$6 NL Holdem cash games, as well as $1/$2 and $2/$4 PL Omaha tables.
Walter can still be found frequenting these same cash games at PKR; that is, when he’s not roughing it up on the football field, hanging out with his friends or playing video games.
Although online poker was the obvious career choice for the young German pro, he did not lose sight of his educational goals. Walter just finished acquiring his college degree earlier this year before putting his full-time focus on his poker career.
Sascha has become well known for his unwavering composure at the tables, as well as his dogged determination. The combination of these qualities has helped ‘locodice’ to become the most triumphant German-based cash games player ever to play on PKR.
“It’s a great honor to be selected as the newest member of Team PKR Pro,” said Sascha Walter when asked about his new position on Team PKR Pro. “I look forward to [showcasing] my skills in live events such as the EPT Berlin and the WSOP representing PKR and the growing German community.”
Simon Prodger, marketing director for the online poker room PKR, had this to say: “It’s fantastic to welcome another member to PKR Team Pro. We have a large German community and we look forward to Sascha representing them at the tables.”
PKR was launched in 2006 and was immediately branded the ‘next generation online poker room’ for its ingenious 3D design, taking players to a whole new level of authenticity with a panoramic guise of virtual reality. The realistic nature of PKR remains unchallenged and unparalleled in the online poker industry.
The conjoining of PKR with Sascha ‘locodice’ Walter is sure to bring a more versatile crowd to the online poker room, expanding its player base from the European, and especially German, territories of the world.
