Extra Games Added to PKR's Mixed Max Tournament

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 03/21/14 -- To compliment the PKR Live Mixed Max tournament that is taking place on the 28th -30th March, the Poker giants have announced today that they will be offering a side order of additional poker tournaments. True poker fans will be able to get involved until their hearts are content.

These side games are open to all who want to play, with the opportunity to buy-in for cash at the venue. Stay tuned for the exciting opportunity to take part in a GBP 30 + GBP 5 Triple Shootout game, perfect for anyone who thinks they have what it takes to win.

The action begins on Saturday afternoon with a GBP 100 + GBP 10 two-day Deep Stack. After this, many players will relish the chance to battle the official PKR staff with a GBP 30 + GBP 5 Turbo Bounty.

These games are a great way to involve players that may not have a stake in the main event, and want to participate in an affordable side game.

What is Mixed Max?

PKR are pleased to host the revolutionary game format, Mixed Max, in the capital city of the UK.

A 3-day poker tournament with an entry fee of $500, Mixed Max is the ninth tournament to come out of the PKR Live series, where PKR have turned the tables on the traditional poker format.

The gauntlet has been thrown, challenging even the most proficient online poker players to come down and battle their way through a selection of game styles.

It all begins on the 28th March, starting with a traditional 9-seater No Limit Hold'em style game.

If you survive till day 2, your short handed game will be tested as we get ready to play 6-seater No Limit Hold'em - which will really separate the men from the boys!

Sunday is day 3, when we will commence our final day with heads-up No Limit Hold'em. We will begin with our final 16 who will return to bring their very best game to the table, playing a series of heads-up matches until the last man is standing.

That lucky player will be crowned PKR Live champion and collect an estimated first prize of $20,000.

Dan Grant (Head of PR) said, "Mixed Max is a real test of versatility and one we hope both our own players and the UK poker circuit will embrace. There are so many live tournaments on offer in the UK and Europe so it's important to be distinct. With the combination of social atmosphere, affordable buy-in and pioneering format, I think we've managed it!"

Come down to the vibrant Olympic Park for the greatest poker tournament of the year. Based in London's Aspers Stratford super casino on Montifichet Road, the first hand will be dealt during the PM on Friday.
