The eagerly anticipated $5,000 weekly freeroll, part of the $67,500 PokerStars PokerNews Freeroll Series, that was due to run on Feb. 20 had to be cancelled due to Pokertars facing technical difficulties. If you were really looking forward to competing for $5,000 do not worry because we have rescheduled the tournament for you.
The cancelled Feb. 20 freeroll will now run alongside the Feb. 27 edition, but only players who were eligible for the Feb. 20 freeroll will be able to register for the rescheduled event. We would like to apologise for any confusion or distress caused by the cancellation of the tournament, but the situation was out of PokerNews' control.
