The tailend of Series 3 in the fantastic PokerProForAYear competition is at hand, but there's still time to qualify for a fantastic $12,000 Global Freeroll. There are also two more $500 Guaranteed Tournaments and of course, the Series 3 Final, so there are plenty of chances to rack up some PokerProForAYear League points.
Our $500 Guaranteed Tournaments continue to be popular in Series 3. Round 4 was taken out by utc67, who won $250 on top of 500 precious league points. The recent Series 3 $500 Freeroll generated feverish competition from 82 starters and was eventually won by German thorst14. Australia's TaipanJ took out second place with another German, svwerde3, placing third. Overall Germany was well represented, with 20 of the 82 starters calling Germany home. Finally, the Round 6 $500 Guaranteed Tournament was won by sfanants, who defeated the current Overall Leaderboard leader kassike to take home the league points and the cash.
Sfanants has now snuck into tenth position in the Series 3 Leaderboard, with several big players such as kassike, splug, and Goldrak all making appearances and first place is currently held by merock with an impressive 8710 points. Can merock convert his efforts in Series 3 to a place at the Final Table? With only three rounds remaining in Series 3, we won't have to wait long to find out.
One of those remaining rounds is the massive Series 3 $12,000 WSOP Global Freeroll which will happen on June 9 at 17:00 EDT (21:00 GMT).
