Simon Rønnow Pedersen Steps Down As Pokercode Head coach

Milko van Winden
Head of Digital Media @ Pokercode

It’s a sad day for Team Pokercode. After three years of being a head coach and more importantly, being a crucial figure in the creation of Pokercode, it’s time for Simon Rønnow Pedersen to step down from his role.

We at Pokercode are obviously sad to see Simon leave, but we’re equally excited for him to take the next steps in life and find another goal to work towards, with the same passion and dedication that he always showed to the Pokercode community.

Simon’s duties at Pokercode will seize from August 15th.

Simon’s statement is written below the video.

Hello everybody,

When something which has been your number 1 priority for the past 10 years, and all of a sudden other stuff in life seems more important… Well, then it’s time to take action.

Therefore, I’m announcing I will resign as head coach and from my duties at Pokercode. My role at Pokercode will seize as of August 15th. It has been a difficult decision. I’ve always been incredibly proud of representing Pokercode over the past 3 years. It makes me even more happy to see what Pokercode has grown to today. But I feel I can’t continue with my job here if I don’t have the motivation for poker anymore.

I want to thank the hard working team behind Pokercode, and mainly thanks to Fedor and Matthias for showing me the confidence I needed.

As a result of me stepping down as poker coach, I will continue as a poker player. But first I hope to find a craft that can ignite the spark that I once had for poker.

Thank you all.”

Simon, we hope to see you every now and then in the community. Thank you for being a crucial part to what Pokercode has become, and all the best for the future.
