There are only three events left, but it is definitely not too late to start playing and this is mostly due to the wild card tournament.

The wild card tournaments gives players the opportunity to earn double points. This mean if you choose your wild card tournament wisely, then you could earn 42 points and make your way to the top of the league leaderboard in no time.

If you post some good results over the next couple of events, then you could be one of the top 27 players who will qualify for the PokerNews League Final.

The League Final will take place on Dec. 21 at 2000 WET and the top 18 finishers in that event will earn a share of the huge $10,000 league prize pool.
