Download Full Tilt Poker via PokerNews to play in Wednesday's event, a $5+$0.50 Heads-up Turbo with $2,500 added. It takes place at 1600 EDT (4 p.m. EDT, 2300 GMT).
Event #5 of the PokerNews Skills Challenge League, a $5 Rush Poker tournament with an added prize pool of $3,000, saw 296 players enter. The eventual winner was "reRomeo" of Russia, who picked up $918.40 for the win.
You can still take part in the League, which takes the best five results, rather than all eight, to make up the leaderboard rankings. Only three League events remain, but a high finish could still be enough to get you into the top 200 of the final leader board. Even if it doesn’t, you still don’t want to miss out on these added-value prize pools.
Got the Skills? We have the Money
The top finishers in each of the following events get League points that count toward the $3,200 League Final Freeroll and the $20,000 Championship Freeroll. For more information on how the League works, check out the $55,000 PokerNews Skills Challenge League Page.
