PKR launches live PKR socials across UK and Europe

PKR launches live PKR socials across UK and Europe

Tuesday, 18 January 2011

Next generation online poker room PKR is known for the social aspect anyway – players’ avatars can jump for joy, weep in despair and all that other good stuff that takes you deeper into the Uncanny Valley when you play online. Plenty of fish there, too. They like the pretty pictures.

Anyway, the player avatars are becoming real people for 100 lucky PKR players next month and in the months after. Following their recent partnership with BAMMA (British Association of Mixed Martial Arts) the players will attend a drinks reception before partaking in BAMMA. Not literally. They’ll be in the audience watching much harder men go at it.

PKR Community Manager Dan “Danski” Grant said: “The PKR community has been holding unofficial social events around the globe for years now, and we really wanted to get more involved with the players at that personal level. PKR Socials will give players the chance to meet, socialize and continue the banter off the felt. Each PKR Social will be slightly different and over the year will feature everything from golf days to pool tournaments, poker nights to pub quizzes. They should be a blast.”

The first event is in Manchester on February 26 for BAMMA 5 featuring Tom “Kong” Watson at MEN Arena. The second social, on the 25/26 March, will see the Fox Poker Club in London host Sit and Go madness with a 150-runner tournament on Saturday.
