If you think it’s too late to start accumulating enough points to make your way up the leaderboard, think again as a wild card tournament opportunity gives players the chance to earn double league points in a chosen event. Double points means a player could potentially earn 42 points in one week which would give them enough grunt to soar up the top of the leader board.

To choose a wild-card event players need to announce it prior to the start of the chosen event in the dedicated forum thread or leave a note on the UK PokerNews Facebook page.

It is the PokerNews League Final which all the players are aiming to the qualify for and only the top 27 on the league leaderboard will secure a spot in the final on Dec. 21 at 2000 WET.

The top 18 finishers in the final will win a share of the generous $9,000 which is in place for the final. See below for a breakdown of how the final is going to payout the eventual winners.
