Young online poker room, PKR.com, has begun running its first-ever World Series of Poker qualifying tournaments. In an attempt to keep things interesting for its customers, the site has setup a number of different ways for players to make a run at history.

The Ultimate World Series Experience

Prize: $12,500 WSOP Package — $10,000 in WSOP chips to be spent on any event(s), $2,500 spending money.

Number of Winners: Minimum of 5.

Qualifying Method: May 25 multi-table tournament, which can be entered via direct buy-in or satellite. Customers who accumulate 200,000 PKR points by May 20 also earn an entry.
