PKR paves road to Vegas


While the November Nine wait to find out their fate at the final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event final table, PKR is already making plans to send players to the 2009 Main Event.

The poker site will be hosting its new Road to Vegas promotion Sept. 15, which promises 33 weeks of freerolls with winners walking away with seats in the 2009 WSOP. PKR is promising to give away one prize package per week, every week during the promotion.

"This is by far the biggest promotion ever offered by and one of the largest World Series promotions in online poker history," said Simon Prodger, PKR marketing director.

"Our 'one a week, every week' format opens the door for all players and we'd love nothing more than to be celebrating a PKR bracelet winner come next summer."

There is a total of $200,000 in prize packages to be handed out in the promotion. The prize packages range from packages for a $1,500 buy-in WSOP event to some for the $10,000 WSOP Main Event.

At least 33 packages will be handed out through the weekly freerolls at PKR. Players will need to qualify each week to be eligible for the freerolls, and the qualifying criteria will change from week to week.

"This innovative format means that serious players can target specific bracelet events, while players of varying bankrolls and ability are also offered a realistic chance to 'viva Las Vegas,'" said PKR in a press release.

The WSOP isn't the only land-based tournament that players can win their way to at PKR. The poker site also hosted events to send players to the Asian Poker Tour Macau event which starts tomorrow. PKR also hosts satellites for stops on the Grosvenor U.K. Poker Tour.
