If you are a no frills, I just want to get in as many hands as possible in the shortest amount of time; you can stop reading this article right now. Ok, for the rest of you that made it past the first sentence, PKR Poker has just released their latest software upgrade, taking the idea of 3-D technology to the next level once again.

PKR Poker has long been seen as the best 3-D poker room in the market (I would say the very first version of PKR Poker released in 2006 is still better than any other poker room has produced) and their latest upgrade, to version 2.08, gives players even more interactive features and options.

Multi-Tabling capabilities increased to 9 tables

While most of the upgrades at PKR Poker are focused on the experience of the casual player, the site did throw a bone to high-volume players, increasing the number of tables a player can participate in to nine. BUT, keep in mind that PKR’s software does take up some serious processing power, and on older machines playing this many tables could cause some lag.

Use PKR Points to outfit your Avatar and buy virtual items

Players can now use their PKR Points to purchase items for their 3-D avatar, or to buy drinks for themselves or their tablemates. The software now allows you to send any single player a drink or buy the whole table a round of shots, beers, or mixed drink cocktails… Hopefully version 2.09 allows you to throw these drinks on players who suck out on the river!

Updated “emote” controls and new theme

The latest software update included an upgrade to the emote function of your avatar, which allows you to give off real or false tells at the table. There is also a new theme to choose from as you can now play on a luxury cruise liner; one of the swankier themes I’ve seen yet.

Upload directly to YouTube

One of the cooler social media functions in the new upgrade is the ability to upload a hand you just played directly to YouTube via the new Hand Replayer at PKR Poker.


If you haven’t given PKR Poker a look in the past it really is a sight to behold, and shows you just what is capable with an online poker room (think X-Box video game and your pretty close to PKR Poker). Here’s a look at a quick 1-minute video of the new features that will give you an idea of what PKR Poker has to offer:
