PKR Live returns for round two


After the resounding success of PKR Live last year, PKR Live version 2.0 is set to kick off April 17 in London, England.

Run as an invite- and satellite-entry-only tournament, PKR Live II action will take place over three days, capped off by a $500 main event with an expected prize pool of $75,000. It plays out at London's Loose Cannon Club.

Simon Prodger, marketing director at PKR, said, "We're delighted to announce our return to the live arena! PKR Live was great fun to be a part of and showed that PKR has the most vibrant poker community anywhere online. We look forward to providing another 150 of our players with a weekend to remember!"

PKR Live I took place in November 2008 and attracted competitors from as far away as Canada and Russia.
