Eugene Katchalov Renews Sponsorship Deal With PokerStars


Las Vegas, Nevada – March 1, 2013 – Poker Royalty announced today that Eugene Katchalov has renewed his exclusive sponsorship agreement with Poker Stars.  Eugene joins Poker Royalty clients Daniel Negreanu, David Williams, Ivan Demidov and Vanessa Rousso on Team PokerStars.

“I am thrilled to continue my relationship with Team PokerStars,” said Eugene about renewing his agreement. “PokerStars is a fantastic organization and I am excited to continue with such a select team of world-class poker players.”

Eugene Katchalov holds one of the most impressive live tournament records in poker. In his first full year as a poker pro, Eugene cashed 12 times with wins in the Bellagio Cup for over $118,000 and the Doyle Brunson Classic for over $2.5 million dollars. An even more impressive 2011 brought a total of 13 cashes, a coveted WSOP bracelet in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event and was named Bluff Magazine’s Player of the Year.

“From an endorser perspective, Eugene is the total package.  His poker resume, work ethic and charisma are second to no one,” said Brian Balsbaugh, Founder & CEO, Poker Royalty. “He’s one of the most liked players on the poker tour by his peers.  What’s the old saying? Nice guys finish last?  Well, in this case the nicest guy is being rewarded, and he certainly deserves it.”

While Eugene may be one of the nicest guys in poker, he’s also one of the most feared on the felt. With over $7,000,000 in earnings, a WSOP bracelet, and a WPT title, this poker maestro is etching his way into the record books one victory at a time.
