Poker players that had an account at the 3D poker site PKR have less than a week to create a PokerStars account to get their existing funds before they're gone.
PKR folded and went into administration after falling into financial difficulty. It was picked up by the PokerStars brand, who agreed to pay out funds that were in player accounts. The catch is that the funds will only be made available until February 28th, when they'll vanish into the ether (and back to PokerStars). There were more than 60,000 accounts with $2 million that were in those accounts.
All players affected by the closure have been sent emails notifying them of how to get their funds. Still, players will only have a short period time left to get their money back. If this affects you, then it's highly recommended that you drop what you're doing and get your funds.
A PokerStars statement on the matter read: "No player should be left unprotected and short-changed by an operator they trust. So if players do receive an email, or haven't had the chance to log-in, we would urge that they do so before February 28. It will only take a few minutes."
