The Online Poker Operator of 2009 has served to their loyal player base an opportunity to win one of seven WSOP Experience prize packages. Each package is worth $4,000 and includes a buy-in to a WSOP bracelet event, travel and spending money, an invitation to a PKR exclusive WSOP party and BBQ, and five nights in a luxury hotel.
Unique to PKR – and common to PokerNetwork regulars – is that they are conducting a poker league with 22 MTT events spanning eleven weeks. Twice a week (every Tuesday and Thursday) PKR will be running a $10 + $2 MTT tournament covering a variety of poker genres; No Limit Holdem, Omaha, Fixed Limit, 6-Max, Deep Stacked and Rebuys.
Each tournament has an allotted 45,000 League points appointed to every event with the top 100 place-getters earning points. At the end of the 22 league tournaments , if you sit on top of the leaderboard you automatically win a package, finish inside the top 10, 50 or 100 and you will get your shot at one of the five Road to Vegas freerolls where a further six packages are on offer.
The first League event is kicking off this coming Wednesday morning at 7:15am AESDT with No Limit Holdem being the game, and of course, a valuable 45,000 points on offer as well as the huge expected prizepool. All events are at 7:15am AEDST.
