Pokerstars To The Rescue In PKR Closure (Update)

60,000 players could benefit from dollar-for-dollar offer

The sudden financial failure of online poker veteran site PKR earlier this year left an estimated 60,000 players “short changed”, according to a press statement from rival Pokerstars Thursday…and the market leader has decided following an agreement with PKR’s Administrator on a bold new initiative making players’ PKR balances available dollar-for-dollar in PokerStars accounts… with no strings attached.

PokerStars will not be reviving the PKR brand and is simply doing this because it’s the right thing to do for the poker world, a company spokesperson said.

“We know the importance of protecting bankrolls by keeping player money and operating funds separate and protected. We want others to take it as seriously as we do and players to be aware,” she said.
