Rakeback Leader PKR signs Jake Cody

PKR has long been popular among poker players, not least because of the 30% rakeback deal that they offer those who sign up through RakeTheRake. But PKR doesn’t sit around resting on their laurels since they’ve been busy searching for a big-time poker pro to add to their roster. And they’ve ended this search with the UK’s Jake Cody, who earlier this year, became the youngest player ever to win poker’s triple crown (WPT, EPT and WSOP title).

What’s amazing about the 23-year-old is that he started off his career by making a small $10 online poker deposit. He never had to deposit again after honing his skills in low stakes poker tournaments, before moving up the ladder towards more profits. Now Cody is one of the best young live poker tournament players, and his career looks very bright.

The Rochdale native’s first major success came when he won the 2010 EPT Deauville event along with $1.21 million. Before the year closed out, Cody added another major title in the 2010 WPT London Main Event, which was good for over $425k. He completed the prestigious triple crown by winning the 2011 WSOP $25k Heads-Up tournament along with $851k. In his young live tournament career, Jake Cody has already managed to make $2.87 million.

After Cody’s signing was made official, he was quite excited and said, “I’m very, very excited about joining Team PKR Pro. I’ve been patient with sponsorship, waiting for the right deal to come along.”

Rather than signing with one of the biggest online poker sites, where’d he be just another face in the crowd, Cody chose to go with a mid-level site like PKR where he can really provide a boost. PKR has already distinguished themselves from other sites by creating one of the most innovative 3D poker software packages in the game. And now they have a top-notch player in Jake Cody to promote this software!
