Over $700k Available to Win Every Month from PKR

Guaranteed Pay-Outs from Big Money Tournaments Total at $0.7 Million Per Month

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- PKR is one of the most popular online poker websites in the world and with guaranteed cash prizes like $75,000 up for grabs every month, it's little wonder why. This week the brand spotlights the 10 main tournaments to keep an eye on.

PKR is a regular hunting ground for British poker prodigies like Jake Cody and the pros understandably stick to the high-roller tables. The good thing about PKR is that these same tables not out of reach for the regular player - you can grab a seat at the monthly $75k PKR Masters tournament for just $2, by qualifying through one of its satellite events.

Sharing a 3D table with some of the best in the business can be understandably daunting for the more casual poker player - which is why PKR open up their tournament schedule to the masses, running competitions on a daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly basis.(i)

Players can choose from a variety entry routes to each tournament; direct buy-ins are always welcomed but there is often the option to enter via a satellite event. Satellite tables are popular on the site because winning can lead to a free seat at one of the major poker tournaments.

A spokesperson for PKR commented:

'Being able to pay out pools of up to $75,000 every month is awesome for us. It's worth remembering that these pots are guaranteed and they often inflate way over that price when thousands of runners start booking their seats. We can't thank the members enough for helping PKR reach this position and long may the big money tournaments continue.'

Details of the top ten competitions are listed below but to start playing right now, visit www.pkr.com.
