Expansion of GGTeam
As you probably know, GGTeam consists of a Global Team and several country-specific teams. There are 4 world-known pro players in the first one:
- Daniel Negreanu (Canada)
- Bertrand' ElkY' Grospellier (France)
- Dan Bilzerian (USA)
- Fedor Holz (Germany)
Also, they have Team China (5 members), Team Russia (3), Team Brazil (1). And the latest addition happened in the form of Team Poland:
On September 21, 2021, Wiktor "Limitless" Malinowski joined the GGTeam.
Malinowski confirmed the news in this Twitter account in a short video in Polish, saying he will be promoting poker across the country and being more active in social media.
Establishing such teams is probably the way for GGNetwork to attract more new players from the particular regions, which they consider the most interesting in the long-run perspective. Signing ambassadors from the LatAm region is no wonder these days - PokerStars and partypoker have been doing it recently. But Team Poland is definitely something new.
Still, it's worth noting that interest in the Polish market didn't appear just recently. Let us remind you that back in August 2020, Polish localization of poker software was launched along with the GGPoker Polska Twitter account. There's even a special weekly $5 buy-in tournament for Polish players called "POLSKIE ŚRODY" (Polish Wednesdays).
According to the GGPoker website, the next member of Team Poland is "coming soon" (the same goes for Team Brazil for over a year). So let's take a closer look at the first representative of the new Eastern European team - Wiktor "Limitless" Malinowski.
Who is Wiktor Malinowski?
As a former handball player, who reached as far as being a member of the Polish national team during his career, he definitely knows what it takes to excel in a challenging game. Malinowski has rapidly gone a long way from freerolls and micro-stakes NLHE cash games in 2014 to high-stakes MTT and cash games, both online and live.
As a cash game player, he regularly participated in live high-stakes action in Macao before the pandemic. Moreover, Wiktor Malinowski won the 2nd largest cash pot in online NLHE history back in August 2020 at Natural8 ($842,438). Also, he participated in HU challenges versus top Pros like Fedor Holz and Stefan "Stefan11222" Burakov.
Here are some of Wiktor’s most remarkable online MTT achievements:
- $726,000 - won $25K High Roller Turbo at PokerStars (WCOOP 2018);
- $443,750 - won $25,500 High Roller Club Main Event at partypoker (2020);
- $394,852 - won $10,300 Super MILLION$ High Rollers (2021).
Currently, Malinowski is 2nd on Poland's All-Time Money List of live tournament winnings with a $4,398,014 profit. He had a total of 6 cashes at different events - here are a couple of them:
- $3,690,000 - won $250,000 Main Event Super High Roller Bowl Europe (2021);
- €264,860 - 7th place at €100,000 Super High Roller EPT Monte Carlo (2019).
The biggest live win happened this month and definitely attracted the attention of GGNetwork management. All in all, Wiktor Malinowski is a treasured addition to the GGTeam. He is successful at both cash games and tournaments, both live and online - really limitless, in full accordance with his poker alias.
