PKR Rakeback and Mini Masters Birthday
By RTR Dennis
Two years ago, PKR launched the Mini Masters tournament, which is an extremely cheap event that gives players the opportunity to compete for a big prize pool. With the second birthday of the Mini Masters quickly approaching, PKR have decided to feature this tournament on their TV station and double the prize pool. That said, it’s definitely worth discussing the Mini Masters’ second birthday in detail.
Prize Pool: $20,000 guaranteed (doubled from normal $10k amount)
Date/Time: September 22nd, 2012 at 18:30 GMT
Structure: Starting stack of 3,000 chips; 5,000-chip rebuy available for $6
PKR TV: Team PKR pros will commentate on the action, and players can watch via the Poker Channel.
While $6 may not be the steepest buy-in in poker tournament history, some low stakes players may be looking for cheaper options into the Mini Masters event. Assuming you fit this description, don’t forget that there are going to be plenty of satellites running right up until this tourney. For just $0.10 or 1,200 PKR Points, you could be playing for a seat in this $20,000 guaranteed event.
Those who play in the September 22nd Mini Masters tourney will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of cheap lottery events. Some of the prizes available in this lottery include iPad 3’s, tournament tickets and PKR Points. Below you’ll find details on the birthday lotteries (all times GMT):
