PKR unveil new 3D poker app on iOS devices; PKR Live is heading to the French Riviera; Trogvar wins the PKR Road to Team Pro promotion, and Eleanor Gudger is getting married.
A quartet of news stories from the UK based 3D online poker crazies, and we will start with a long awaited upgrade to their mobile app.
Members of the PKR community will be delighted to learn that 3D multi-table tournaments(MTTs) will now be available, alongside ring games and Sit n Go’s (SNGs), on iOS devices.
Players residing in the UK, Ireland and several other European countries will be able to download the new app, and those that still don’t have access, can have the MTT experience on the 2D format which is also available across all devices.
A desktop version of the 3D upgrade is expected in the near future, as is a 3D version on Android mobile and palmtop devices.
“With support for MTTs, our app now stands alongside any in the world and we’re delighted already with the reaction from our players, who have really embraced real-money poker on mobile,” PKR CEO Malcolm Graham told Gaming Intelligence.
PKR Live! Gets Glitzy
The mobile app is not the only thing getting an upgrade at PKR.
The ninth installment of PKR Live is heading to the French Riviera, making it the first time the live event has been held outside of the UK.
PKR Live Cannes is a three-day €400 Main Event held Oct 23-26 at the Casino Barriere de Cannes Croisette. Satellites are already running at PKR and qualifiers will get to stay at the Hotel Majestic Barriere, which was the case when the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) last held its tournament in Cannes.
UK based players can win a $1,200 package that includes buy-in, accommodation, $200 in cash and free tickets to the party. PKR.fr players have a similar package worth €850.
Roman ‘Trogvar’ Khan Wins a PKR Team Pro Sponsorshi
The Russian cash game player, Roman ‘Trogvar’ Khan, has earned a coveted spot on Team PKR courtesy of victory in the ‘Road to Team Pro’ promotion.
Khan has earned a six-month contract and $5,000 in live tournament buy-ins after winning the 10-player Road to Team Pro PKR Final. He beat Iseethelight in heads-up action, who took home the consolation prize of $1,000.
Wedding Bells Ringing in the Ears of Elz442
Trogvar is not the only PKR Team Pro with a grin the size of a cat from Cheshire. Eleanor ‘Elz442’ Gudger is also smiling from ear-to-ear after her boyfriend, and fellow PKR player Kevin ‘ForFoxSake’ Wheeler, proposed to her earlier this week.
Gudger finished third in the £3,300 No-Limit High Roller at the United Kingdom Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) in Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) earlier this year, for $62,336, which should come in handy for a decent wedding frock.
