PokerStars is offering a series of free daily poker tournaments that give online poker players a shot at nine weekly final tournament events that each offer $100,000 in added money to the prize pool.
The 2,000 best finishers will be taken from the weekly final and entered into the Grand Final. Players there will pit their best poker strategy against one another as they battle for the $250,000.00 prize pool.
$250,000 prize pool, not bad for free poker!
The top 5,000 Grand Final finishers will each leave the virtual poker table with a share of PokerStars 1/4 million dollar prize pool. The winner of the tournament won’t just be winning cash however.
The winner of the PokerStars Grand Final Freeroll takes home a Lamborghini Gallardo!
A Lamborghini Gallardo is worth about $200,000. That’s 4/5 of the prize pool. The car is worth more than the cash the first place finisher and second place finisher put together win!
Satellites for this online poker circuit will be available in the PokerStars lobby on Sunday the 25th of July. Freeroll events are set to kick off every two hours for as many as 10,000 players from the 25th of July until September 25th.
Weekly qualifiers will be held through August and September
The Grand Final is scheduled for October 3rd 2010.
