PKR sponsored BAMMA kicked off in style
The PKR sponsored BAMMA fifth season kicked off at Manchester’s MEN Arena on Saturday night. An army of PKR players applied for free tickets to witness the martial arts spectacle; prior to the event, the successful applicants gathered in the Printworks in the heart of the city for a PKR-organised social event. Manchester was the first stop in a series of events specially designed to bring PKR players together in a series of poker-related and non-poker related events and activities.
PKR spokesperson Dan Grant said: “Thanks to all the players who joined us for an unforgettable first ever PKR Social. The PKR Social events are a great opportunity for players to get together and have a laugh both on and off the poker tables. We look forward to the next meet-ups in the pipeline including PKR Social: London this March and the PKR Social: Midlands’s golf event in April.”
After the social event, the poker players witnessed explosive martial arts action, concluding with the main event which saw MMA star Tom 'Semtex' Daley defeat opponent Yuya Shirai in the first minutes of the first round.
