A former professional poker player hailing from the Netherlands, PokerNews' Head of Live Reporting EU/ROW Yori Epskamp (37) began his first foray into poker media back in 2011 at PokerCity.nl as a feature writer and live reporter. He joined PokerNews.com in 2016 after working at the World Series of Poker, starting out as a freelance live reporter before joining the team full time as a live reporting manager and editor.
Since 2018, Yori has been spearheading the live reporting department together with Head of Live Reporting USA Chad Holloway. With the PokerNews live reporting team, they travel all across the globe to cover the biggest poker tournaments in the world including the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
In 2020, due to the effects of COVID-19 on the live poker scene, Yori moved into a senior editor role and has been leading PokerNews' transition into full-scale online live reporting.
When not on the road, Yori resides in the Netherlands with his daughter and loves to run in his spare time.
