Poker Icons are proud to announce that James Keys is joining Ramzi Jelassi and Toni Ojala at Team RedKings.
RedKings Poker strengthens their presence on the live tournament scene with the addition of James Keys.

He has also had success in Europe and the UK with a 2nd place in the Baltic festival in Estonia and a win in the DTD monthly deepstack in 2009.
“I’m very excited to be signing with RedKings, the site has always been a favorite of mine and hopefully I can be a good representative of RedKings, I also very grateful to Poker Icons for getting me this opportunity” – says James Keys.
James is at the moment in Australia playing the main event of Aussie Millions, and with the new sponsor his schedule for 2011 is packed with events, including among others GSOP Live series, WSOP and EPT events.

It’s great to have one of the UK’s most exciting new and upcoming poker pros be part of the Team especially now as we host our very first major live tournament in the exciting city of Bucharest on February 2nd”- Says Michael Golembo, CEO of RedKings.
