The first of ten amazing money-added tournaments begin today at 20:00 UK time on PokerStars, where everyone participating will be awarded points towards the $9,000 PokerNews PokerStars Western poker League.
This week's event is a $3+$0.30 full ring tournament played to No Limit Texas Hold'em and we have added $100 to the prizepool. Whoever wins this tournament will be awarded 20 League points but if they use their wildcard and win then they will pick up a massive 40 League Points and will build themselves a huge league after just one game played. The wildcard needs to be announced in the dedicated forum thread otherwise it will not be valid.

Not only will the winners in every event take home cash prizes, players will accumulate points in each tournament depending on where they finish. The points go towards the league leader board.
Players will also receive one bonus point for each tournament played, just for participating. Also, one event can be chosen as a wild card tournament where players will receive double the league points for that selected week.
After the ten weekly tournaments are over, the top 27 players on the league leaderboard will advance to the PokerStars PokerNews League Final on Dec. 21 at 2100 ET (0100 GMT). The final will see $10,000 added to the prize pool and the top 18 places will all go home with prizes for their efforts.
