Join Team PokerStars in the $10,000 PokerNews League

PokerNews League

Take to the felt in the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League before it’s too late!

The top three places on the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League leaderboard have started to tighten up as the last three weeks are closing in.

"Kanabal18" is still out in front after an impressive few weeks but the consistent form of ”AJEI” has seen him skyrocket up the leaderboard to sit only a few points behind first place.

Last week’s league event was taken down by ”AJEI” and he received 21 points for taking down the $3+0.30 turbo event. ”AJEI” also received the lion’s share of a free added prize pool.

It may seem like it is too late to catch "Kanabal18," but his 64 points came after taking part in just three league events, and with three more events remaining in the league, it's definitely possible for you to make your dream a reality.
