Katerina ‘Katerina289’ Malasidou

Multi-lingual Katerina Malasidou hails from Athens, Greece, and her introduction to the world of online poker came about thanks to her boyfriend, none other than fellow Team Online member André ‘acoimbra’ Coimbra. With his support and encouragement Katerina eventually decided to quit her job as an accountant and dedicate herself to poker full-time. It was a bold decision considering she had minimal poker knowledge at the time, but it was a calculated move that’s now paying off.


Highlights in Katerina’s short poker career so far include making huge profits during one big month in 2012, where she reached the point at which she could now make a living from the game. Katerina also won the WBCOOP Best Female Blogger Award in 2013. And while not considering herself an MTT player, Katerina has also made several final tables that have seen her take down thousands of dollars in winnings.

Away from poker Katerina enjoys playing Magic: The Gathering and board games, dancing, cinema and travel. She takes great pride in her blog, which you can find here, and hopes to encourage more women to play poker by spreading her love of the game. She also has her eye on achieving the top VIP status at her favourite poker site.

Katerina can be found playing hyper-turbo satellites under the screen name ‘Katerina289’.
