Play In The PokerStars Red Spade Open
The PokerStars Red Spade Open makes its return on Feb. 26 at 1500 EST, carrying with it a massive $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool, of which at least $200,000 will be awarded to the eventual winner. On top of these huge cash prizes there are also $100 bounties on the heads of all Team PokerStars Pros who are participating, so you do not even have to make it to the money places to walk away with some cash!
The best thing about this tournament is the buy-in, which is just $55 if you buy-in directly, or if you want to use your FPPs to buy-in you can do so for just 3,100 of them depending on your VIP Status. Some of the best players in the world will be playing including Team PokerStars Pros Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Eugene Katchalov and Jason Mericer, and you can rub shoulders with them for just $55, even less if you satellite your way in.
The tournament can be found in the PokerStars lobby under "Tourney," then "Special." You can also use a filter and search for "Red," and like magic, it shall appear before your very eyes!

$600 First Deposit Bonus
Make your first real money deposit using bonus code "STARS600" and marketing code "POKERNEWS.COM," and PokerStars will give you a 100% bonus up to $600. See below for other available currencies.
You can make up to three qualifying deposits in 90 days (up to the maximum bonus value) — the perfect way to take full advantage of the 100% bonus.
Once you’ve made your deposit(s), you earn the bonus by playing real money games on PokerStars and collecting the number of VPPs equal to 17 times the bonus amount (USD). The bonus is released in increments of 10 ($10, £10, €10 etc.), each released into your account as you clear the needed VPPs (e.g. 170 VPPs for every $10 increment). You have six months after each qualifying deposit to earn all the VPPs needed to release your bonus giving you plenty of time to clear the entire amount.
