PKR Players Experience the Best of Las Vegas

Qualifiers Are VIPs at Five of the Hottest Events in Sin City

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 21, 2011) - After the success of last year's inaugural WSOP Experience, next-generation poker website returned to Las Vegas last week with an even more exciting schedule in store for its 24 online qualifiers, six Team PKR Pros and a number of other PKR players.

As part of the $4,200 WSOP Experience package, qualifiers stayed for six nights at the brand new, world class Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas hotel. In addition to playing the $1,000 buy-in WSOP event #54 - in which six players cashed for a total of $48,000 – qualifiers were also treated to five complimentary VIP events at some of Las Vegas' top venues.

From the Bellagio's Caramel Bar to the Revolution Lounge at the Mirage, PKR brought together its players for a series of parties infused with the community spirit for which the site has become widely known.

The highlight of the week for many qualifiers was the Wet Republic pool party, created by world famous DJ David Guetta. Held on the Fourth of July weekend and known for bringing a taste of Ibiza to Las Vegas, more than 70 PKR players received the VIP treatment in three luxury cabanas at the MGM Grand 's celebrated dayclub.

An official qualifier dinner at celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse's Table 10 restaurant and a tour of Las Vegas completed a WSOP journey which many qualifiers, for whom this was their first trip to Sin City, had won in freerolls.

Steven 'enoobs' Boone, who qualified for $25 and cashed in event #54 for $2,059, said "It has been without a doubt one of the best experiences I've ever had. The sense of community has always been what sets PKR apart from the rest. No one should have any hesitation about trying to qualify for something as epic as Las Vegas with PKR".

PKR's WSOP Experience will return in 2012 with more VIP packages up for grabs.
