Do you play at PKR and wish that you could see who the players behind the avatars are? If that is the case, you need to head to the Aspers Casino in Stratford, London between March 20 and March 22 because those are the dates that the latest edition of the popular PKR Live takes place.
The highlight of the three-day festival is the £50,000 guaranteed PKR Live Main Event, which guarantees a cool £10,000 for the eventual champion. Costing £270+£30 to enter, the PKR Live Main Event sees players commence battle armed with 30,000 chips and play to 40-minute blinds that start at 50/100. One re-entry is allowed up to the end of Level 8 in case you manage to dust off your stack!

Should you bust from the Main Event after the re-entry period then you can get involved in no less than four side events and the bustling cash games that run 24-7 at Aspers.
There’s a £30+£5 Win the Button tournament, a £72+£8 Deepstack, a £20+£5+£5 Turbo Bounty, a £30+£5 Deep Stack Turbo and if you were lucky enough to qualify for PKR Live London you’ll be invited to a special qualifier drinks session!
To spice things up further, anyone who qualified for the Main Event online at PKR is automatically entered into the King of Qualifiers promotion, which is essentially a last longer bet against fellow online qualifiers. Be the last PKR qualifier standing and you’ll receive an addition 20% of any prize money that you win.
