The UK online poker site known as PKR is recognized around the world as one of the best sites of its type thanks to the realism and game play it offers. PKR is proud to support a long list of players from countries all over the world. It is also proud to offer those players the return of the annual Oktoberfest poker party for 2014. This year's promotion includes over CAD $100,000 in prize pools along with lots of great poker.

Oktoberfest begins on Friday, October 24. PKR is offering players a long list of incentives designed to introduce them to the company's award-winning, 3-D poker software. Taking advantage of the incentives is a matter of using the PKR3FEST PKR.com coupon code upon a first visit. The code offers new players:

  • 100% deposit match bonus, up to $500
  •     
  • 30 free tickets for the PKR Daily $200 premium freeroll
  •     
  • Two PKR Oktoberfest tickets worth $3.50 each
  •     
  • Monthly Club PKR for free roll access ($15,000 in prizes)
  •     
  • Automatic upgrade to Club PKR benefits
  •     
  • 1,000 PKR points to spend in the PKR Store.


Everyone who participates in Oktoberfest will also be offered free virtual lagers throughout the tournament. More details – including the terms and conditions of the tournament – can be had by visiting the PKR website prior to the start of play. Again, Oktoberfest begins on Friday, October 24, 2014.

PKR 3.0 Software Update



If you've been away from PKR for a while, Oktoberfest 2014 is your opportunity to get back into the swing of things and experience the latest version of the award-winning software: PKR 3.0.

The company has been hard at work improving their software for faster game play and ease-of-use. Gamers will immediately see the results of that work when logging into the website. The portal, which previously occupied virtual space between login and game play is now gone. Users can now get straight from login to a table as quickly as possible.

Gamers will also notice an improved lobby experience with new options allowing them to do more in less time. For example, the new 'My PKR' screen gives users fingertip access to important information such as real money statements, friend lists, customer support, tournament tickets, avatar editing and more. As far as game play is concerned, PKR developers have improved animations and game logic for a smoother, less interrupted flow. Players will enjoy a quicker and more natural game play experience, even between hands.

An important part of the software redevelopment has been to make the desktop application more like its mobile counterparts. The goal is to deliver a consistent experience across all platforms, enabling gamers to play their best regardless of how they are accessing their favourite tables.

PKR invites you to join them for a brand-new software experience by participating in the annual 2014 Oktoberfest promotion. It promises to be a time of great online poker excitement in the world's most sophisticated online poker room.

Party Poker is now offering a new exciting version of the Texas Hold'em poker game. Double Hold'em is played like regular Texas Hold'em, but with a twist.

First you receive three cards instead of two pre-flop. Once the flop is shown, and before the betting starts on the flop, you must select one card as the Point Card. The Point Card can't be changed once selected.

What's The Point Card?

The Point Card is the card that is used in each of your two hands. That's right, remember you've received three cards. Each of the non point cards is used with the Point Card to created a hand. For example, let's say you receive Ah, Kh and 9s pre-flop. Let's say you call the blinds, and the flop is shown. Before any betting on the flop, every player still in the hand must select a Point Card (you don't see the cards of the other players). In this example, let's say you select the Ah as your Point Card. You're now effectively playing with two hands, AhKh and Ah9s. The rest of the game is played the same; there's a round of betting on the flop, then on the turn, and then on the river before the showdown. At showdown, the best of your two hands is used to decide if you won the hand.

Double Hold'em makes for bigger pots and more exciting poker. Double Hold'em seems to be Party Poker's response to Full Tilt Poker's new game that was revealed earlier this year, Rush Poker.

Full Tilt Poker has launched a new reward program for its players, dubbed The Black Card. Basically, to be eligible for the Black Card, you must reach what Full Tilt calls the elite status.

The benefits to having The Black Card? You get access to a private Black Card Store where you exchange your Full Tilt Points for luxury items, Black Card merchandise, as well as cash bonuses.

Not only that, Black Card members receive twice the number of Full Tilt Points and entry to an exclusive online tournament.

How do you become a Black Card member? You need to generate a minimum average of 500 FTP points per day over a rolling 100-day period.

Full Tilt Points – New Dealt Method

While we talking about points, Full Tilt also has a new way of calculating how the points are awarded. In ring games, 10 Full Tilt Points is awarded per dollar raked to the table. The points are then divided between all the players at the table who were dealt a hand. So if there's 5 players who are dealt a hand on a table, and the rake ends up being $2, 20 Full Tilt Points will be given to the table, and each one of the 5 players would receive 4 points each.

To find out more about The Black Card and the new Full Tilt Points system, visit Full Tilt Poker.

Don't have a Full Tilt account yet? Use the Full Tilt Poker referral code NPF600 to receive your $600 bonus.

This summer, during the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP), Phil Ivey won his 8th bracelets. This puts him in a tie (with FTP mate Erik Seidle) in 5th position in WSOP History. Who's in front of him Johnny Moss with 9, Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan with 10 each, and Phil Hellmuth reigns on top with 11.

At 34, Ivey is still young in poker years, and it's widely considered as one of the best poker players in the world. We're talking about a pro who finished 4 times in the top 25 at the WSOP main event, and all post 2003! We're not talking about these years where only a few hundreds players played in the events. At the 2009 WSOP main event, Phil Ivey took 7th place, out of just under 7000 entrants. Ivey is definitely the real deal.

That being said, catching up with Helmuth will be hard. However good a poker player you are, winning a bracelet is never easy, 3 is even harder. Plus, Hellmuth is still playing and could still win a bracelet or two, although some would say is glory years are behind (his last bracelet dates back to 2007).

Nonetheless, I'm pretty sure Phil Ivey will give is namesake a run for his money, or should I say chip.

You can play poker online with Phil Ivey on Full Tilt Poker. Use the Full Tilt Poker Referral Code "NPF600" to receive up to $600 in Bonus.
