The eagerly anticipated $30,000 guaranteed PokerNews Main Event kicks off on Monday and although qualification is no longer possible, there are still plenty of reasons to sign up to PokerStars through PokerNews.
PokerNews Main Event Kicks Off On Monday July 9
At 14:00 ET on Monday, July 9, the $30,000 Guaranteed PokerNews Main Event will take place on the world's biggest online poker site PokerStars. This PokerNews-exclusive tournament was open new customers who signed up through PokerNews between May 16 through 30 or existing customers who earned just 150 VPPs during the same time period.
A quick check in the PokerStars lobby shows (at time of writing) there are just 447 players registered, each of who will start with a generous stack of 30,000 chips and play to PokerStars' tried and tested 15-minute blind structure.
It looks like the $30,000 PokerNews Main Event is going to pay out the top 90 places, with a min-cash being worth $78.00, anyone reaching the final table is guaranteed $423.00 and the eventual winner will walk away with $5,625.00!
Everyone at PokerNews wishes those who will be playing in this prestigious event the very best of luck for Monday!
