PKR set for $250K High Stakes Championships
1 Jun 2012
With a program of events designed to suit every player, the festival commences with a $100,000 GTD PKR Masters this Saturday at 19:00 GMT. The remaining six events span a variety of poker disciplines, from the $20,000 GTD 6-seater "Terminator? to the $50,000 GTD 8-seater "PKR 500? on the final day. There will also be opportunities for players to gain entry to High Stakes Championships tournaments for a fraction of the cost through satellites on the day before each event, with buy-ins from $5.
The High Stakes Championships also offers players the exciting opportunity to win a $4,500 WSOP Experience package, a six-night Las Vegas adventure which includes a WSOP event, luxury hotel accommodation, VIP event schedule and spending money. High Stakes Championships participants will earn leaderboard points for their finishing position in each event, with the leaderboard?s eventual first-place finisher awarded the $4,500 WSOP Experience package.
PKR Poker Room Manager Neil Wright commented, “It?s been just over a year since we last ran a selection of events of this size and we're looking forward to welcoming players of all levels to enter what is shaping up to be our most exciting High Stakes Series ever. Whether you prefer Deepstack tournaments, Rebuy tournaments or Bounty tournaments there really is something for everyone over these seven events. We are also intrigued to see who wins Player of the Series and manages to get their hands on the WSOP package. Competition will be fierce.”
The final tables from three of the seven events will also feature on PKR TV, to be broadcast through PKR's YouTube channel and on the Poker Channel, with hole cards revealed and commentary from Team PKR Pro.
