LONDON, England - (PRESS RELEASE) - APT Macau Main Event winner Adrien 'zlatan35' Allain is the latest up and coming star to join poker's coolest collective Team PKR Pro.
Following his success at this year's APT Macau, which saw him take down the Main Event for $391,556 – an event he qualified for on PKR.com for just $5 – Allain has officially put pen to paper to become a fully fledged member of Team PKR Pro.
The 23 year old from Rennes in France has had an extraordinary run of form since joining PKR.com back in April 2008 including firsts in the Sunday $30K, the Saturday Big Shot and the Sunday $17K plus a sixth place at the PKR Live II Main Event - his first live tournament experience.
