PKR is offering the Ultimate WSOP Experience

Posted on by RTR Dave

To many players, the WSOP is about much more than just playing for huge prize pools and trying to get rich. It’s also about experiencing Sin City in its full glory by staying in luxury hotel suites and partying hard. Unfortunately, most online poker rooms don’t recognize this dream since their prize packages mainly consist of a tournament seat and budget hotel stay. And while this might get you into a WSOP tourney, it’s not going to offer quite the thrills that you’re envisioning. That said, PKR separate themselves from the pack by offering $4,500 packages that prioritize the Las …

Black Chip Poker running $10k April SNG Race

Posted on by RTR Dave

Online poker cash races are always fun because they give frequent players a chance to compete for huge prizes. Unfortunately, the problem with these races is that cash players have an advantage since it’s easier to generate rake by playing lots of hands per hour. Going further, sit and go specialists don’t really have much of an opportunity to win. This being said, Black Chip Poker have chosen to hold a contest that’s solely dedicated to SNG players.
