PKR Stepping Out to Host Live Festival

PKR Stepping Out to Host Live Festival

Thursday, 11 September 2008 has gone from 3D online to 3D live, having announced the launch of its first ever live poker festival. The three day event, aptly named PKR Live, will run from November 14th - 16th and will be held at London’s Loose Cannon Club.

The inaugural PKR Live festival will feature guaranteed prizes totalling nearly $100,000 along with cash games and Sit & Go’s running throughout. Up to 150 qualifiers will get their hands on packages worth $1,000, which includes buy-ins for all of the weekend’s tournaments in addition to travel and accommodation expenses - and the only place to qualify for this event is on

The festival will boast three days of intense live action including a $60 freezeout warm-up tournament on Day 1, the $500 Main Event freezeout on Day two, and a $10,000 on Day 3 for those not lucky enough to get to the conclusion of the Main Event. Qualification to the event begin from as little as $2.38.

Simon Prodger, the Marketing Executive for PKR said, “This marks another important moment for PKR. We always strive to give our players the best experience in online poker but we also know that many of our players enjoy playing live. So now we are crossing the bridge to bring some of our fantastic PKR community together for a truly one-of-a-kind festival.”
