The PokerNews-exclusive 7 Weekend Wonders promotion restarted last weekend on Poker770 and the top 20 finishers walked away with a share of $1,500. Who scooped the top prize? Was it you? Let's find out.
This week's top prize of $225 in cold, hard cash went to "PokerGuns911." Not a bad little bonus for a couple of days grinding online poker, we're sure you'll agree. PokerGuns911 held off "loliiilol" ($175), "6oktober" ($150) and "highlandem" ($100) to get his hands on the winner's prize for Week 1.
Here’s a look at the top 20 finishers for Week #1 (Petra) of the 7 Weekend Wonders promotion:
The qualification period of Week #2 (Machu Picchi), runs between midnight on Aug. 3 and 00:59 CEST on Aug. 6, and we have another $1,500 to give away to the top 20 770Points earners during that period.
All you need to qualify for the second of our seven races is to earn 100 770Points during the qualification periods (all of which occur on the weekend) and you’ll have a shot at your share of a $1,500 prize pool. Earning 100 x 770Points is easy as you will earn 20 x 770Points per $1 generated in rake at the cash-game tables and 22 x 770Points per $1 paid in tournament fees, meaning $5 worth of rake or tournament fees will be enough to qualify for each weekend's promotion.
If you are not eligible for this week's race, don't worry because there are still plenty of weeks to go on this excellent promotion as you can see in the table below:
