Poker Icons signs Jeff Sarwer!
- The former chess prodigy takes his poker career one step further

32-year old Canadian Jeffrey “Jeff” Sarwer is one of the most interesting figures on the international poker scene. He was a chess wunderkind and in 1986, at the age of 8 he became World Chess Champion of boys under 10. Since 2008 he has been conquering the world of poker.

Jeff Sarwer is a former chess child prodigy, who learnt to master the game by playing against himself and once in a while simultaneously against up to 40 other players. Jeff disappeared from the public eye amid a cloud of controversy by the age of 11. In late 2008 Jeff found a new challenge in poker and started playing regularly on the European circuit and already on his first active year on the tour, season 6 of EPT, he was nominated for EPT Achievement of the Year and EPT Players Choice Award 2010. EPT Season 6 highlights include a 10th place in EPT Warsaw, a 3rd place at EPT Vilamoura and a 2nd place in the EPT Berlin 10k event. To date, Jeff has 6 EPT cashes and over $500,000 in tournament winnings.

Poker Icons was my clear choice when I was contemplating getting myself an agent and I believe that this will take my poker career to the next level! – says Jeff Sarwer.

Jeff also played in his first World Series of Poker in 2010 and cashed in 3 events, which included a narrowly missed final table in the 1.5k NL Shootout event.

We are very excited to finally have signed Jeff. This has been a target for us since EPT Vilamoura last year, I’m sure he will be the next big star within the poker world and with the right sponsor Jeff will be a great face and representative due to his very interesting background and major media interest surrounding him at all times – says Lars Kollind, Poker Icons

Apart from traveling on the poker circuit, Jeff spends most of his time in Europe and he has been involved in the Polish real estate business. There is also an on-going movie project about Jeff`s extremely interesting and unique life story.
