Springfest is in the air

7 March 2007

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- PKR unveiled details today of its groundbreaking new online poker festival Springfest. The event is expected to draw thousands of competitors from around the world by giving players at all levels the chance to play for big money prize pools plus a shot at a seat in the world's most prestigious poker event – the World Series of Poker.

With at least $85,000 up for grabs during a week of spectacular poker action this is PKR's biggest event ever and, true to PKR's innovative approach, signals a major departure from traditional online poker events.

PKR Cardroom Manager Neil Wright said, "We wanted to make Springfest different by making it more accessible to everyday players who are put off by the big buy-ins of other major festivals. So we put together a series of tournaments with very impressive prize pools with lower buy-ins and satellites that players can buy into for as little as $1.10".

The action kicks off March 31 and runs for eight action packed days – culminating in the main event on April 7 with a $25,000 Guaranteed no limit hold 'em tournament.

Throughout Springfest players can test their skill in a variety of exciting formats, each featuring big time prize pools and affordable buy-ins. The winner of each event, along with the top two players from the Springfest leaderboard, will qualify for the Tournament of Champions to play off for a seat in the 2007 WSOP main event.

With low buy-ins, satellite tournaments and a wide range of games to play Springfest really does offer something for everyone. And with each event winner receiving a solid silver commemorative bracelet, they'll be playing for keeps!
