More Ways in to PKR Live VI Announced

Players Can Now Win Buy in PLUS Expenses to Event With $300,000 Prize Pool

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - Next generation poker site PKR.com have opened up two separate routes of qualification for their flagship PKR Live VI event which takes place at the Fox Poker Club in London from the 19-22 May 2011.

Players can now choose between qualifying for a seat-only package worth $1,220 or go for one of PKR's newly launched packages worth $1,660 which include buy-in to the event plus $610 towards expenses. Satellites for both are rolling around the clock with players able to buy in at a variety of different levels including daily rebuy tourneys that start at just $2.10.

Set to be London's premier poker event in May with a prizepool of over $300,000, PKR Live VI is throwing its doors open to non-PKR registered players for the first time by offering seats to anyone who wishes to buy-in directly for $1,220, rather than take the online route.

Marketing Director, Simon Prodger commented, "With satellites running from as little as $2.10 and an expected prize pool of $300,000, PKR Live VI offers an affordable route to entry with a life changing prize pool... a tournament which will stand tall as the capital's dominant tournament this May."

The previous five incarnations of PKR Live have all been renowned for their unique atmosphere and a competitive spirit and PKR Live VI is set for more of the same. This event will feature Team PKR Pros including 2010 WSOP Europe bracelet holder Scott Shelley, APPT High Roller and Heads Up Grand Slam champion Vladimir Geshkenbein alongside some of the biggest names in UK poker.

In addition to a huge number of PKR online qualifiers including freeroll and competition winners, past PKR Live events have attracted many of the UK and Europe's rising stars including EPT champion Kevin Stani, WSOP champion James Dempsey, APT Macau winner Adrien Allain and recent Aussie Millions runner-up James Keys. In 2009, Toby Lewis finished second to Vince Diver in the PKR Live III Main Event, then a $1,000 buy-in, cashing for $20,000 before going on to win an EPT title the following year.
