Another $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League event has been entered into the record books, and this time, ”FOLDCapeesh” took down the win.

The win puts “FOLDCapeesh” in a good position on the league leaderboard, but "AJEI" currently is king of the castle after taking part in the first three events and showing consistent form.

Visit PokerStars

Players receive one league point just for participating in any of the league tournaments, and the top 10 players each week cash in on the most league points.

If players think it’s too late to start playing in the league, think again because the exciting wild-card tournament allows players to earn double league points in one chosen event. This means that if you choose carefully and end up winning your wild-card event, you could find yourself at the top of the leaderboard after just one week!

To choose a wild-card event players need to announce it prior to the start of the chosen event in the dedicated forum thread.
