PKR Releases New Schedule for its Poker Players

PKR has released a new poker tournament schedule with improved guarantees across the board. The overhaul to the schedule is designed to appeal to a wide range of players and will see several brand new poker events added to its schedule.

The flagship PKR event-the $100,000 Guaranteed Masters-will now be run twice every month on alternating Saturdays. Aside from that, the $30,000 Guaranteed High Roller tournament on PKR will run every Saturday that the $100,000 Masters does not. This means poker players will have a chance at a big cash pool every Saturday on PKR.

In terms of daily poker tournaments, the $5,000 Guaranteed Deep Stack Grand Prix returns to its 20:45 GMT slot while the bigger $30,000 Guaranteed PKR Primetime starts off at 19:25 GMT. The online poker room also features the $5,000 Goldrush daily at 20:50 GMT. This poker event is a $2 rebuy so small stakes poker players can join the action.

PKR will also offer several exclusive poker tournaments for its players in Canada and Australia. Australians will be able to enjoy the $6,000 Aussie Classic on Sundays at 8:55 GMT as well as the $3,000 Aussie Open, running at the same as the Classic Monday to Saturday. Canadian poker players will be able to play the $3,000 Guaranteed Canadian Open daily at 02:30 GMT.

The Pot-Limit Omaha and Omaha-Eight poker game selections have also improved immensely at PKR with more poker tournaments, bigger buy-ins and more guarantees. PKR, which markets itself as the next generation online poker room, achieved a remarkable milestone this summer by registering its three millionth poker player.
