LONDON -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Next-gen poker site PKR.com has released details of its Oktoberfest online tournament festival, a 51-event series beginning on 27 October with total prize pools expected to exceed $450,000.
The series offers one headline tournament each day with low-, mid- and high-stakes versions of the same event to cater for players of every bankroll. Participants will also earn leaderboard ranking points, and once the series is complete, the top leaderboard performers from each stake level will compete in a six-handed freeroll for a $3,000 WPT National Dublin package and the title of Oktoberfest Champion. A total of $3,500 in additional tournament ticket prizes will also be paid out among the leaderboards’ next highest placed finishers.
With a wide range of buy-ins – from $1.50 to $270 - and game variations, the 2012 Oktoberfest offers more tournaments and a bigger total prize pool than any of its predecessors. The series also features a $270 buy-in $75,000 guaranteed PKR Masters and culminates in a trio of two-day Oktoberfest Championship events, which take place from 11-12 November. The final tables from the PKR Masters and each Championship event will be broadcast later in the year on PKR TV via the Poker Channel and PKR’s YouTube channel, with analysis from Team PKR Pro.
PKR card room manager Neil Wright commented, “We’ve always had a soft spot for this particular series, and we’re delighted that we can offer even more events than any previous year. Old favorites have kept their place, alongside new and entertaining game types. It’s also great that one Oktoberfest player will freeroll their way to a WPT National Dublin package, and we look forward to following their progress in January!”
