Vladimir Geshkenbein Wins PKR Heads Up Grand Slam

Vladimir Geshkenbein Wins PKR Heads Up Grand Slam 0001

In one of the most star studded events ever played out in the UK, a new name emerged from the pack to take down the PKR Headsup Grand Slam. Vladimir Geshkenbein of Russia was one of the lesser known names in this event, but no stranger to high stakes after winning the High Rollers event at the APPT in Macau earlier this year.

Geshkenbein bested a field that included Tony G, the Devilfish, Tom Dwan, Luke Schwartz, Annette Obrestad, Peter Eastgate, JC Tran and Ian Frazer to win the event, beating TV poker veteran Juha Helppi in the final. The aggressive Russian pummelled Helppi into submission in their match to win the $120,000 first prize. He also beat Alex Keating, Brahim Hajji, David Steicke and James Sudworth on his way to the final.

It's also quite fitting he didn't look too unlike this winning PKR avatar that gets used in press shots quite a lot.
