This month we were focused on expanding our client portfolio, helping non-profit organizations, and also profiting from poker tournaments where our signed players had shown great results. Let’s have a look at the main events of May:
- 2 Brand new auctions are announced
- 2 New players in the scouting system
- Football contest in the Predictions
- Tobias shows great results at WSOPC event
Two brand new auctions
In May we announced two auctions with two professional sportsmen. 100% of received money will be directed to charitable institutions.
The first one is a pair of boots from Sergey Kornilenko, a Belarusian professional football coach and a former player who played as a striker. He is an assistant coach with Krylia Sovetov Samara. Sergey won the champion title in three countries — Belarus (Dinamo Minsk), Ukraine (Dynamo Kyiv), Russia (Zenit). Sergey played in English Premier League club Blackpool F.C. in 2011.
The auction supports the Khabensky charitable foundation. It organizes crowdfunding and medical help for children with oncological and other hard diseases of the brain.
Sergey Kornilenko: “For a very long time I played in Mizuno boots. They felt comfortable to me, plus I really like this old school style. Also, Mizuno is just one of the oldest brands. Now you rarely see such a pair. But for me they are precious for other reasons — I scored many important goals in them. I kept these boots in memory of my career.
I will be very glad that they will still be useful — not on the football field, but like a lot at the auction.”
The second lot is from a Russian professional tennis player and 2018 Kremlin Cup winner Daria Kasatkina. Daria decided to support the Zhivoy Foundation. Right now they help doctors, who fight coronavirus in distant points of Russia, by providing with first-class protective equipment: suits, shields, gloves, shoe covers.
Two new players in the scouting system
During the last month, we were highly focused on tennis scouting. Right now two promising tennis players are under expert review.
18-year-old Adrien Burdet is from Switzerland. He is a winner of the Maribor Open in 2018. In 2020 he won the J3 tournament in Almetievsk. The highest career rank is the 117th position.
Aziz Dadabaev is a 17-year-old player from Uzbekistan. In 2019 he won three J5 tournaments and is planning to enter the top 100 ITF Juniors ranking this year. The highest career rank is the 138th position.
Football contest in the Predictions
We are glad that sports life is reviving. In May our monthly predictions contest was dedicated to one of the strongest football divisions in the world — the Bundesliga. The top-100 contestants shared 5000 TEAM tokens. The winner scored 2833 STAR points and got 500 TEAM.
Tobias shows great results at WSOPC event
On the 17th of May, our poker expert, Tobias Schaaf won the 3,620 dollar prize at the World Series of Poker Circuit $55 Sunday Special event. He took the 6th place among 2658 participants. We think this is a great result and want to congratulate Tobias!
