PKR Live is just one week away – qualify now for the first ever Mixed Max tournament in the UK

Next week Aspers casino in London will host the latest event in PKR.com’s successful PKR Live series. To put a special twist on it the $500 main event will be held in a unique Mixed Max format, the first of its kind in the UK. The rules of a Mixed Max event are simple; on Day 1 the tournament plays out as a standard 9-handed table before moving to a 6-max format on Day 2 and finally into a Heads-up format on Day 3 when just 16 players remain.

It will be an interesting experiment and should be a lot of fun for all the players involved – especially those that make it to the heads-up stage! If you want to play in PKR Live then satellites are running on PKR.com from today until Monday March 24 – check the PKR lobby for full details. If the $500 buy-in for main event is a bit too steep for you then the good news is that PKR are also putting on a plethora of excellent side events, including a £110 2-day Deepstack event, and a £35 Triple Shootout that will be perfect for sit-and-go experts. Full details of the schedule can be found here.  

As Mixed Max tournaments are so rare in the poker world – and have never been held in the UK before – PokerPlayer.co.uk consulted resident strategy expert and Team PKR Pro Simon ‘Rhymenocerous’ Hemsworth for some priceless strategy that should take you all the way to the heads-up stages.
