LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) -'s WSOP Experience qualifiers have more to look forward to as PKR confirm venues for both the PKR WSOP welcome party and the official PKR World Series party.

The welcome party will take place on Friday, 1 July at the Caramel Bar at the Bellagio with the whole bar exclusively reserved for qualifiers, Team PKR Pros, staff and friends. With 1,600 square feet of space, plasma screens and top DJ's spinning the tunes, the bar has become a favourite for both corporate functions and with celebrities, poker players and Vegas visitors alike.

The Official PKR party has always been one of the most talked about events of the World Series and this year looks set to be no different. The eagerly-awaited event will take place on Tuesday, 5 July at the Mirage resort's Revolution Lounge.

PKR Community manager Dan Grant commented, "The World Series of Poker is our chance to transpose the entertainment we give our players online to the real world, against the ideal backdrop of the world's greatest poker festival. While the chance to win a bracelet is everything to our qualifiers, we'll be ensuring they leave with some unforgettable memories from some of Las Vegas' top locations".

There are three separate routes available to the 2011 PKR World Series Experience with direct buy-in tournaments and satellites rolling around the clock.
