Win $15,000 in the Exclusive PokerNews League Carbon Poker 0001

Are you looking to whet your online poker appetite? If so, then we have the promotion for you. From Oct. 11 through Jan. 8, 2012, PokerNews players are invited to participate in an exclusive league on Carbon Poker where they can play for special tournament tickets in three different types of tournaments: $3 buy-in, $5 buy-in, and a VIP Point Freeroll. In those tournaments, players can qualify for the Big Final, held Jan. 8, 2012 at 18:00 GMT (1400 EDT), where over $10,000 will be up for grabs.

There will be two tournaments held each week, throughout the 12 weeks of the promotion. The tournaments include a $3.00 + $0.50 ($50 USD added) buy-in every Tuesday, with the first kicking off on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011. Points for the league are awarded for a final table appearance, and will be distributed as follows:
