PKR.Com is set to Expand into Television - 21st May 2008

Online poker corporation, PKR has recently announced a move which seeks to branch their brand name into television by broadcasting Internet poker tournaments into more than fifteen million homes across Europe. This recent move is intriguing in its attempt to help out talented online poker players who may lack the finances to compete in bigger venues.

Their initiative into more appealing aesthetics at their virtual tables has meant that PKR will have the look necessary toward capturing audience attention. Player avatars and special spectator views will be accompanied by game commentary (provided by PKR.Com podcast personalities, Dan ‘Danski’ Grant James and ‘Jabbawa’ Bach). PKR hopes to give non-professional players the ability to gain recognition through this exciting venture and increase their brand while their users have a greater chance of breaking into the big leagues.

Thursday nights will feature PKR’s $100 buy-in, $10,000 jackpot tournament with Saturday hosting the $60 buy-in, ‘$20,000 Guaranteed TV Showdown’. As PKR continues to focus on taking the business of online poker to new levels via intelligent innovation, devotees of their service can continue to benefit. UK poker fans can check out broadcasts soon on Sky TV channels 157 and 842 or attempt to qualify via the PKR.Com page.
