PKR Social: Dusseldorf

German Poker Players Got Balls

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 17, 2011) - Following the successful launch of PKR's new series of fun and friendly community events in the UK, the company is now setting foot on new ground by rolling out the first overseas social event. 'PKR Social: Düsseldorf' will take place in Germany this May and gives German speaking players the chance to meet the faces behind the avatars of their online mates and PKR staff.

The two-day event kicks off on Saturday 7 May with players enjoying the exhausting thrills of dodging bullets and hitting runner runners in a totally different field when PKR Players go head to head in the paintball arena. After a short break to freshen up and maybe shake off a bad beat or two, players will be invited to dinner before an evening of poker with lots of PKR merchandise in the prize pool and a free bar. Accommodation is included in the package at a nearby hotel and after good night's sleep and a late breakfast on Sunday morning, players will part with new friends, new experiences and dozens of stories to tell.

PKR will subsidise half of the cost for this weekend which means players will only have to pay €45 for the whole package, including five hours of exclusive PKR paintball action, dinner buffet, poker freeroll, free evening bar, accommodation and breakfast. There are 45 places available at this thrill-filled weekend and they are bound to fill up quickly. Anybody wishing to book a spot can email - with reservations confirmed by 15 April.

German PKR Marketing & CRM Executive Marc Reiner commented, "The German PKR community has steadily grown over the last few years and after the launch of the German speaking PKR forums it's really time to get more involved with the players on a personal level and put some faces to the nicknames. PKR Social: Düsseldorf will give players the chance to meet, socialise and continue the banter off the felt and we are absolutely looking forward to it!"

The PKR Social concept was born out earlier this year and has seen PKR invite players to a host of events like BAMMA 5, PKR Social Midlands golf day, PKR Social London poker weekend and more. The company states that PKR Social: Düsseldorf will be the first of many non-UK social events.
