Poker Royalty, the industry's premier poker representation agency, announced today that 2008 World Series of Poker Champion Peter Eastgate has selected Poker Royalty for worldwide management and marketing representation across all major platforms, including media, sponsorship, licensing, commercial endorsements and appearances.
Hailing from Denmark, the 22 year old poker pro now holds the title of the youngest World Series of Poker Champion, a record previously held by Poker Royalty exclusive client Phil Hellmuth. The win moved Eastgate to 11th on Poker's All-Time Money List.
"Peter is the epitome of the young, intelligent and fearless online poker professional whose game has translated fantastically to the world of live tournament poker," said Jim Erwood, Poker Royalty Director of European Operations, who will lead Eastgate's management team in Poker Royalty's London office. "It is a very unique opportunity for us, because he's a very marketable twenty-two year international player with $9,000,000 in the bank. Peter can afford to be very selective with the endorsement relationships he chooses and align himself with opportunities that suit him perfectly."
"I believe the team at Poker Royalty is best suited to help me navigate through the duties and opportunities that arise as the reigning World Series of Poker Champion. They represent the biggest names in poker and I'm honored to have them working on my behalf," said Eastgate, a Denmark native who recently moved to London, England.
Eastgate earned just over $9 million in the 2008 World Series Main Event. He outlasted 6,844 opponents from 72 different countries in the longest World Series of Poker in history.
