    Hi all,

    We're giving $6000 away in a free-to-enter Texas Hold 'Em poker tournament on PKR.

    It's every Thursday evening from the 26th October at 8pm UK time.

    We'd also ask that if you want to take part you don't hand the password out to non-Eurogamer types.

    To download the client please click here.

    The winner of each of the 7 heats will go through to the final, along with the top 3 runners-up. The final will be on the 14th December.

    You can practise with fake (or real!) money on PKR in advance to get the hang of it...

    If anyone has any questions (relating to the tournament!) let me know and I'll find out the answers.

    One thing that hasn't been answered yet: Is there a cost to enter, and are the games all involving real money?

    will the pasword be posted here for lurkers to use too?

    I know it's good for PKR and EG for loads of people playing.....but for the players, only having registered members would be better for us :)

    A poker game, that i don't need to pay any money to enter, don't even have to cash in my own money for chips and there is a real money prize at the end?

    I'm so there.

    Chips? There'll be chips?

    I'm always up for a free feed. Count me in.

    I'm keeping the blinds down though. Nosy neighbours see? don't want them leering at my free chips.

    So are people creating their avatars to actually look a bit like themselves?

    Mine's a reasonable stab at it but it's not perfect!
