Last Chance to Win Big in the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League

PokerNews League

This is your last chance to pick up a share of free cash in the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League!

This week marks the last event for players to participate in for the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League.

If you would like to make your way up the leaderboard and secure a spot in the PokerStars League Final, make sure to take to the felt in the last league event and don't forget to use your wild card.

10: Dec. 14 at 2100 EDT (0200 GMT) — $3+$0.3 NL Heads-Up ($100 added)

With just one event left, ”AJEI” sits atop the leaderboard with 90 points after another remarkable finish in last week's league event.

In Weeks 7 and 8 of the league, "AJEI" took down consecutive victories to skyrocket up the leaderboard, and another big finish saw "AJEI" finish in third place last week to secure 17 points.

As you can see above, it only takes 34 points to finish in the top 10 and this can easily be achieved if new players finish in first or second place in the last event and make sure they use their wild cards to receive double league points.

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

Remember, players only need to finish in the top 27 to secure a spot in the League Final and currently the player in 27th place, "lariam," has 21 points. This will be easy to catch if you put in a big finish in the final league event, so make sure you don't miss out.

Each heads up tournament will award league points a bit differently due to the nature of the heads up format.
