PKR introduces new phase tourneys

The Prize Money

At PKR there are plenty of ways for poker players to enjoy some action, and now the poker site has added one more.

PKR offers players phase tournaments that combine the fast-paced excitement of sit-and-gos with the chance for big-money payouts from small buy-ins.

Previously PKR offered players two different phase tournaments - 10-seat tourneys and heads-up tourneys - but now players also have the option of trying the Elite Heads-Up phases for even bigger cash prizes.

According to PKR cardroom manager Neil Wright the Elite Heads-Up Phases are an extension of the regular Heads-Up Phase tournaments.

"Elite Phases give players the opportunity to win significant cash prizes for a small outlay. Players can progress through each level - starting at Phase 1 for $3.80 (in the Heads-Up Phases) - and turn that buy-in into $1,500," Wright said.

Players who make their way up through the Heads-Up Phases will then have a choice when they make it through Phase 9 to either move on to Phase 10 to play for a $380 prize, or they can gain entry into the Elite Heads-Up Phase 1.

Poker players who don't want to have to work their way up from the small stakes can also opt to buy in directly to any of the Elite Heads-Up phases as well.

"Any player accustomed to heads up strategy will be well suited to take on the challenge of reaching the top of the ladder," Wright said.

"Heads up poker is all about fast decision making, sizing up your opponent and dealing with constant pressure every hand. If you like that part of the game you'll love Heads-Up Phases."

Wright said that as poker aficionados themselves, the people at PKR are always working to design a wide range of interesting games to offer players new and compelling challenges. A lot of those ideas and suggestions also come from the players in the PKR forums.

"We're continually looking for original and interesting game structures and have a few ideas in the pipeline which should find their way to the lobby soon," Wright said.
