PKR announces Oktoberfest celebration

Empire Casino, London

For the second year, PKR plans to host an Oktoberfest celebration on its online poker site. Following on the heels of the Super Series, Oktoberfest will begin Oct. 17 and offer up more than $260,000 in cash prizes.

Oktoberfest will feature 12 events set over 12 days on the pokers. Like the Super Series, Oktoberfest will be capped off with a PKR Masters and Tournament of Champions, which will bring the best players from the series together for a shot at a piece of $5,000 and the champion title.

"Last year's festival was a huge success, and this year's will be bigger and better," said Neil Wright, PKR cardroom manager. "We are looking forward to achieving our biggest prize pool ever in the PKR Masters."

Already, the $260,000 in prize pools will almost double what was given out in guaranteed prizes in last year's Oktoberfest.

There will also be a variety of events to choose from in the Oktoberfest series.

"The events on offer at Oktoberfest are tailored to appeal to everyone with both speed and long running deep-stack tournaments included in the schedule, in addition to popular Terminator and bounty tournaments," said PKR in a press release.

The poker site will also host a massive range of satellites for all the events as well as lotteries to ensure that all of its players have a shot at getting a seat in an event.

On top of the money being offered up in each event, PKR will also be giving players a chance at stardom as they plan to televise the final tables across Europe and on YouTube.

PKR plans to release the full details of the tournaments with a schedule on its site soon. To check out what else the poker site has for poker fans, visit PKR.
