The new PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge will pit players against some of the biggest names in poker all in front of a TV camera.
This first set of players will start in Monte Carlo and receive return flights for two to Monte Carlo, four nights for two at Le Meridien, €500 in spending money that is credited to their Stars Account and a €12,500 buy-in to the cash game.
Anything the players win after a minimum of 150 hands is theirs to keep!
From Feb. 27 through March 5, players can qualify online daily at 12:05 p.m., 2:05 p.m. and 4:05 p.m. ET using a ticket. Each player can claim a maximum of seven tickets.
To get seven free tickets, deposit $30 (€28/£24) or more using the code ‘CASHCALLENGE.’ The prize pool is $1,000 and the top 20 finishers will advance to the casting stage.
Once players make it to the casting stage, they’ll be invited to submit a video audition, telling their story (about their life outside of poker) in two minutes or less. This will be a chance for players to show off their personality, humor or enthusiasm.
All videos must be in English and be uploaded to YouTube. Email the link to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 12 to be considered. Copyrighted material is inadmissible.
PokerStars will shortlist the best videos and contact the players by phone for more interviews. Each entry should not expect a response, but of those who make it to the phone interviews, two will be selected for the cash game.
