Poker Pros Help New Players Win Online

PKR Gives Members a Chance to Learn from the Pros With 'Raise Your Game'

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 6, 2012) - PKR, Britain's ground-breaking online poker room, has added another ace to its deck in the form of 'Raise Your Game' - a platform dedicated to schooling players with the latest advice from the pros.

For online poker players 'Raise Your Game' is like an underground card room in Vegas, packed full of seasoned pros sharing tales of success and tricks of the trade. All the Team PKR Pros contribute to the web page; recalling specific hand types, advising on situational play and helping new players understand what it takes to become pro, both on and off the virtual felt.

Over half a thousand articles (and counting) have been uploaded to 'Raise Your Game' and a visit to its main page before a round of free poker, is the perfect way to warm up. Players can access the latest word on the pro circuit through the Editor's Picks banner and beyond that; the archives can be searched manually.

A spokesperson for PKR commented:

'Since that first PKR chip was flicked into our first virtual pot eight years ago, our goal has been the same - to bring players as close to the live experience as we possibly can. It's been great to get the pros on-board with Raise Your Game because we're not pedalling worn-out advice here - we're opening up the real world of poker to our members and they can interact with it directly.

'It's really exciting for us to see comments coming through on each article and we know the pros get a real buzz from it too.'

Aaron Hendrix currently holds the title for most recommended piece on the site, for his advice on purposefully giving opponents 'free cards'. Hendrix has reached the final table in over 20% of the live tournaments he has entered and his experience with PKR poker makes him one of the most insightful contributors to Raise Your Game.
