Get Ready for PKR Live 2013 in London
By RTR Dennis
PKR are well known for offering an unparalleled online poker experience that’s complete with 3D graphics and numerous character-design options. But this site also likes to offer players an exciting live poker experience from time to time as well. And that’s exactly what they’re doing with the PKR Live 2013 tournament, which you can read more about below.
PKR Live 2013 Dates and Location
PKR Live will be held from March 29th–31st, 2013, which is Easter weekend. Obviously it’s no fun missing a chocolate-filled visit from the Easter Bunny, but your loss can be eased by how this tournament is expected to offer well over $150,000.
Plus London’s swanky Aspers Casino will be the location for this event. Aspers truly offers visitors a Las Vegas experience with its glamorous décor, live entertainment, trendy bars, a 500-seat poker room, and a spectacular rooftop view of the 2012 Olympic Village.
PKR Live 2013 Prize Packages
The direct buy-in to this tournament is a reasonable $500. However, if you don’t have $500 – plus the money to travel to London – you can also win prize packages through PKR.
To win a prize package, you should sign up at PKR if you’re not already a member; doing so through RakeTheRake will get you a 50% rakeback deal plus up to a $500 bonus. Once you’re a member of this site, you can play for an $800 prize package, which covers the $500 Main Event buy-in along with $300 for hotel/travel expenses.
