Another week, another PokerNews exclusive-points race taking place on Poker770! $1,500 in prize money has to be won and a share of it could be yours as we head to Machu Picchu for the latest edition of the $10,500 7 Weekend Wonders promotion!
This week's 7 Weekend Wonders race is named afterMachu Picchu, Peru, a former Inca settlement. Thousands of tourists head to Peru each year to complete what is often called the Inca Trail but the only trailing you will want to see this weekend is your opponents trailing you in their attempt to catch you in the 7 Weekend Wonders rake race!
Earn as many 770Points as you can between 00:01 CEST on Aug. 3 and 00:59 on Aug. 6 and you could be in with a chance of winning a share of $1,500.
770Points are earned at a rate of 20 per $1 paid in rake at the cash-game tables or per $1 spent on tournament fees. In a $10+$1 tournament the $1 would be the tournament fee. To ensure that your points are counted toward each weekly leaderboard, just earn 100 770Points during the qualification period, but remember that the more 770Points you earn, the greater your chance of victory will be.
This week's $1,500 prize pool will be distributed as follows:
Last week the 7 Weekend Wonders race was named after Petra and was eventually won by "PokerGuns911" who walked away with a bankroll-boosting $225 first place prize. Will you be the player we're writing about after this weekend's action?
