I made an account on PKR to recieve the free cash they were offering. Here are my thoughts. Positives:
-The software is unique and looks great.
- No other site offers such customization and it almost feels like a kind of sims plays poker kind of thing.
- Soft player pool due to the lack of true grinding potential.
- Generous startout bonuses
- Cool Satellites to PKR live.
- There need to be a lot more MTTs to play at less peak hours. I found myself having to wait a few hours before a decent structured tournament came up.
- Most of the tournaments are Rebuy+Addon, annoying for those who prefer the freezeouts.
- The software can lead to tables becoming slow, so you need to use PKR Lite which is less innovative.
- Smaller traffic than most sites
Overall, I wasn't playing on PKR very long due to the lack of traffic in MTTs and better cash games on other sites such as Stanjames and Partypoker. Would I recommend this site site to beginners? Well, the issue is that sites like Sky, Party and 888 offer softer games with more traffic. So to be honest, the only real attraction of PKR is the innovative software, and If you love it, this would be the site for you.
