LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – Oct. 27, 2010) – ‘Great Scott Week’, PKR.com’s week-long celebration of Scott Shelley came to a close on Friday after an action packed week of Bounty Tournaments, Heads Up challenges and weird and wonderful questions from the PKR.com forumites.
Altogether players had 24 opportunities to play against Scott across a mixture of tournaments and Sit & Go’s with various prizes on Scott’s head, ranging from cash prizes to satellites for London Calling and PKR Live V. Highlights include Marcello ‘marcell84’ Sica who took home a PKR Live V package, in addition to a $500 bonus heads-up victory, and Graham ‘twochipstwo’ Bradley who eliminated Scott to claim a £300 London Calling Main Event seat.
To round up the week, Scott was crowned as the tenth inductee to the PKR.com Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is a coveted hot list in the PKR.com community and provides PKR.com players with recognition for their achievements within poker.
Scott Shelley commented “This is fantastic! This time one month ago, I was a Customer Support Executive and now I’m being inducted into the PKR Hall of Fame. It’s an honour to join the PKR legends who have already earned their place in this group. I want to thank everyone for all the support I received, with a special mention to the forum posters who suggested I be inducted!”
