PKR.com is a poker site which offers players the unique experience of playing with a 3D avatar from a third or first person perspective as a game of Texas Hold 'Em poker progresses. It is unique to the poker market in that it is possible to simulate players reactions and actions as the hands get dealt, even down to looking at your cards.
The system requirements of the download aren't particularly demanding either; there is even an option to play in detail if your laptop or computer cannot handle the workload of handling 3D graphics and networking.
Registration too is simple and easy to understand. You don't even have to put in your bank details or credit card details until you are prepared to deposit money to play with. Depositing money is by no means a necessity though, with many "freeroll" tournaments provided for players to win small amounts of cash. This cash can then be used as buy ins for other games meaning that it is theoretically possible to make money from the site from absolutely nothing!
Don't expect this to be an easy ride however, as there are many players out there who are ready to take your money away. The community typically takes poker very seriously and although it is possible to get a decent conversation out of the rooms it is very clear that everybody there is there to play poker, not to mess around.
In conclusion if you haven't tried the game yet and you have used other poker sites then I highly recommend that you do so as it is one of the best around. Make sure that you have a working knowledge of how to play poker before you join though as others will quickly get frustrated with you.
Summary: Excellent site provided for poker players of all levels.
