They say a picture is worth a thousands words, but in the case of PokerStars’ Sickest Setup, it could be worth 50,000 Frequent Player Points. Between now and April 7, PokerStars’ Team Online is looking for players to take a photo of their computer setup and post it to Instagram with their PokerStars ID and #starssickestsetup hashtag in the photo.
The top ten setups will win a 50,000 Frequent Player Points prize, and those setups will be determined by votes from Team Online and PokerStars players. As the official rules page states: “[you have] until the end of the PokerStars Sunday Storm 2nd Anniversary on April 7 to get as many votes as you can. Check out the competition and vote for your favorites via the PokerStars Instagram page, and see which setups have caught our eye on the PokerStars Blog. So what are you waiting for? Submit your entry now!”
There have already been some great submissions, but one of our favorites came from Sergey "S_Frantic" Moskvin. We won't be showing you the image here due to its mature nature, and unfortunately for Moskvin, it seems Instagram wasn't a fan of his picture and promptly deleted it.
To view dozens of submissions, simply click here. You may also browse through PokerNews' old video series The Sunday Grind to see various setups of poker players around the world. One of our favorites is this one involving McLean Karr at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
In addition, PokerStars Team Online members, who are not eligible to win prizes, will be submitting photos of their setups. Here are a few:
