While the added cash prize pool will entice players to load up PokerStars each week, it is the league points that every player will be gunning for.
Not only will the weekly tournaments award league points according to where players finish but one bonus point will be given out for just participating in each tournament. That means players can accumulate 10 points, just for playing every week.
The events in the $9,000 PokerNews League are open to everyone, but are password protected. The password is released on PokerNews 24 hours before the commencement of each event.
To up the excitement, players also have the ability to choose one event where they can earn double the amount of league points. This wild card tournament needs to simply be announced on the dedicated forum thread prior to the start of the chosen event. Choose carefully, as you only get one chance at double points!
After the ten weekly tournaments are all over, it will be the top 27 players on the league leader board who will advance to the PokerStars PokerNews League Final on December 21 at 20:00 WET. The final will see $9,000 up for grabs, with the top 18 places going home with a cash prize for their time.
