PKR software upgraded

In typical PKR style, the 3d poker room has chosen April fool’s day to show the rest of the poker world that they’re not messing around when it comes to offering players a unique poker experience.

Today is the day when PKR’s award winning software gets another upgrade, and it’s fair to say that it looks pretty damn impressive. New games and a variety of features have been added to software which has already re-defined the online poker market.

So what are these new additions?

New games:

Omaha Hi-Lo – The big news is that PKR has expanded its poker offering. From today, players can start playing Pot Limit and Limit Omaha. This has been rolled out across the board, so there will now be Omaha cash games, SnG’s and MTTs.

Mini Roulette – PKR have added another embedded game for you to get involved in when sat at the poker table too. Roulette now joins Blackjack and Casino Hold’em meaning that you can keep yourself entertained even when you’re not involved in a hand.

New features:

PKR Timebank – Nobody likes feeling under pressure. Especially when you’re being asked to make a decision which could make or break your bankroll. Now, with the new Timebank feature, PKR players can request additional time to have a think about their next move. When playing in cash games, more time will be added to your bank with every hand that you get involved in (up to the table maximum). If you prefer to play in tournaments, your time bank will remain constant.

Skip breaks – The ability to skip a break has now been added into the final table of all tournaments. If all players decide that they’d rather get on with the action, then the break is skipped and play resumes as normal.

New Shop items:

A load of really cool stuff has arrived in the shop now too. You can now spend your PKR points on new poker books, high-end electrical stuff and a wide range of other accessories. You can also purchase subscriptions to PKR’s partner training site BlueFire Poker where Phil Galfond will work to improve your game.

All in all, this ranks as one of the best and most important PKR upgrades for a while. We’ve had to wait a little while for it … but it’s certainly been worth it!!

Freeroll your way to WSOP 2009

The Road to Vegas this week will see a WSOP prize package worth $3.5k given away without any risk to your bankroll! The Premium Freeroll will take place on Sunday with players buying in directly for 20,000 PKR points or via a number of qualifiers costing just 50 points a shot.

The winner will walk off with a seat to the $2k buy-in no limit hold’em event of their choice at the 2009 WSOP. The generous package will include all traveling and accommodation expenses to ensure that when you sit down at the table, you’re in tip top condition.

Satellites have already started running on a daily basis and will continue to do so until Sunday evening. The schedule for the qualifiers will be as follows:

  • 15.55 Freezeout – 500 points
  • 20.35 Freezeout – 2,000 points
  • 12.50 Rebuy – 100 points

Sunday Classic gets bigger

The Sunday Classic on 15th February will be even more special than usual – and that’s becuase PKR have just announced that they will be raising the prize fund from $30,000 to $50,000.

The buy in will remain at $65 (giving players even more value for cash), and there will still be plenty of low cost qualifiers for those who can’t buy directly into the final tournament.

The Sunday Classic is the biggest game of the week at PKR and kicks off every Sunday at 19.00 GMT

Qualifiers have already started, so if you haven’t got an account yet, grab a bonus code and head on over to for some great value poker.

Those of you who already play your poker there, can buy in to the final tournament directly or start getting seats in the qualifiers via the Tournaments tab in the lobby.

PKR Masters guarantees $100k

It’s coming up to the last Saturday of the month, which can only mean one thing: it’s time for the PKR Masters again.

The Masters is PKR’s big monthly tournament which guarantess that $100,000 will be given away in prize money. Even better news is that PKR have just announced that the overall winner of the tournament will get his/her hands on at least $25,000 and this is likely to increase should all the seats be taken.

I’d have thought a full tournament will be pretty much guranteed, mainly because PKR deliberately try to keep the field relatively small in order to give everyone a good shot of getting involved in the cash.

Those of you wanting to get involved can buy in to the final table for $250. If that sounds a bit rich for you, then don’t fear PKR have set up a load of satellites costing a lot less in order to ensure that everyone can have a fair shot at landing some serious cash.

If you’re a Sit & Go player, qualifiers will cost $27 and come with a guarantee that one in ten players will qualify for The Masters. If that’s still a little too much for you to be spending, then there are daily MTT qualifiers where the entry fee is just $1 … or you can also get through via a number of one handed satellites costing just 52 cents.

To get involved, simply log in to PKR and then hunt out the qualifiers in the lobby’s Tournament tab. The Masters itself is also now available from the lobby, so those of you looking to buy in directly can now do so.

If you’re not currently a member at PKR, then this seems as good a time as any to get signed up. And if you’re going to be depositing some cash in order to play in the Masters, have a look through our PKR bonus code page to ensure that you get some free cash when you register.

The tournament will be taking place on Saturday 31st January at 20:00 GMT.

Great new locations to play in at PKR

PKR has long been known as the poker room with lush 3D graphics that set it apart from more conventional online poker rooms.

Well the distance between PKR and its competitors has increased further with the announcement that there are now three more exotic locations to play your poker in.

PKR have now added an Ancient Egyptian themed Casino, a plush Chinese restaurant and a classy underground wine bar … and they all look great as you can see in the screenshots below!

PKR have also improved on their graphics in other ways too. Those of you who like to play in tournaments can expect your online avatar to share your celebrations when you win. A new addition to the software will see your character stand up from the table, raise his hands in the air and milk the applause of the spectators when you take a tournament down.

All in all, some brilliant new additions!!
