We all know that Christmas is only a few short sleeps away, however, you can kick Christmas off a little early this year and reward yourself with some presents by playing in PKR’s “Christmas Cracker” series.

Christmas Cracker starts on December 23rd, and it will offer 11 different tournaments with a combined $238,000 in prize money. The Christmas Cracker tournament schedule is as follows:

December 23rd: $7,000 guaranteed with $15 buy-in

In addition to the Christmas Cracker events, players also have the opportunity to play in the Santa’s Grotto Freeroll where extra prizes are given away. Some of the prizes that you can earn in Santa’s Grotto Freeroll include a Sony 40’’ LCD TV, an Apple iPad, a Wii console with games, a Sony portable DVD player, a Kodak camera, 48’’ round poker table and a radio controlled BB Firing Tank.

If these prizes sound good to you and you’re interested in playing for them, make sure to play in at least one Christmas Cracker event to qualify. In fact, you’ll want to play in as many Christmas Cracker tournaments as you can since PKR will add 500 chips to your Santa’s Grotto Freeroll stack for every tournament played. Assuming you play in every Christmas Cracker tournament, you’ll have a 5,500 starting chips stack.

In addition to this series, PKR are also hosting a special Aussie Xmas Series which features another eleven events from Dec 23rd through until Jan 2nd at Aussie-friendly timeslots. The schedule is varied so there’s something for everyone with the PKR Xmas Aussie Masters Event on January 2nd guaranteeing a $7,000 prize pool for the $100 buy-in event.
