The new PKR pro will be found through a promotion called "Road to Team PKR Pro", which started yesterday and will continue until August 10th when the final is being hosted.
The winner of the promotion will become a member of the respected Team PKR Pro and receive a $5,000 tournament sponsorship for live tournaments around the world.
