On February 19, PokerStars announced that the upcoming European Poker Tour (EPT) Season 12 Grand Final event running at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort in Monaco from April 25 to May 6 is set to be "the "biggest and best yet."
This weekend, the world’s largest online poker site is giving you the opportunity to join all the best poker players in the world in Monte Carlo for the experience of a lifetime with a huge $10,000 package.
"Our PokerStars Team Pro Online members have turned a love of online poker into a fun and rewarding career, and have become some of the biggest names in the online poker community," PokerStars stated. "Now, during Team Pro Online Week, you have the chance to challenge these players and win big prizes."
Welcome to The Team Pro Online Week!
1. The Heads-Challenge Trophy
On March 1, PokerStars held a $11 online event where the best players won a ticket to play the Heads-Up Challenge Trophy, a special tournament running on March 5 at 14:00 ET.
During this tournament, a field of 32 composed by those who qualified on March 1 and a number of Team Pro Online members will battle to leave the poker room with the $5,000 prize to be awarded to the highest-placed qualifier, and the $10,000 EPT Grand Final package on tap for the qualifier able to win the tournament.
2. Back The Right Player And Fly To Monte Carlo
If things didn’t go your way on March 1, you still have some pretty good chances at a $10,000 package. All the players who took part in the event have received a Backing ticket: if you are one of them, use yours to register for one of 32 freeroll tournaments - one for each of the participants in the Heads-Up Challenge and keep your fingers crossed.
The freeroll named for the eventual winner will run at 14:00 ET on Monday, March 7, with a $5,000 prize pool and $10,000 EPT Grand Final packages for the top two players.
3. $20,000 Bounty Freeroll
If cold hard cash is what you are after, mark March 6 on your calendar, because that’s when PokerStars will run the perfect event for you.
At 15:00 ET, the poker site will welcome the start of a special Team Pro Online Bounty Freeroll, a free poker tournament that carries a guaranteed prize pool of $20,000. And that’s not all - because not only a bunch of Team Pro Online members will be in the field, but you will get an extra $50 cash prize every time you bust one!
To claim your ticket to this event, you need to deposit $10 or more using the bonus code ‘ONLINE2016’, between 10:00 ET on February 26 and 15:00 ET on March 6.
