Win Your Share Of Est. $450,500 Worth Of Prize Pools At The PKR Oktoberfest! 0001

Keep your diaries free between Oct. 27 and Nov. 11 ladies and gentlemen, because those are the dates the 2012 Oktoberfest will be running on PKR and you do not want to miss it.

Each day for 16 days, PKR will run a mini, medium and high stakes version of the same tournament, culminating in the Oktoberfest Championship. There will be 51 events played in total, with over $320,000 in guaranteed prize pools ($450,000 in prizes expected), and a whole host of added prizes.

Throughout Oktoberfest, ranking points will be awarded to everyone who enters an Oktoberfest event, starting with five points and increasing all the way up to 100 points for the eventual winner. These points will determine where a player finishes in their respective Mini, Main and High leaderboard where a total of $3,500 worth of PKR tournament tickets will be awarded.

In addition to this, the top two finishers from each leaderboard will compete in a six-handed sit ‘n’ go tournament that will see the winner walk away with a $3,000 package to the WPT National Dublin Main Event!
