The Final Results from the $67.5k PokerNews PokerStars Freeroll Series Are in!

$67,500 PokerNews PokerStars Freeroll Series

The $67,500 PokerNews PokerStars Freeroll Series saw hundreds of PokerNews customers take to the PokerStars virtual felt across 12 exclusive $5,000 freerolls. A staggering $60,000 in cash was won from those 12 freerolls, with an additional $7,500 being shared among the top 15 performers across the series.

We had hoped to bring you the full results of the leader board sooner, but the series was so closely fought that there were a number of players tied on the same number of points, which meant we had to go through the results of every tied player in order to determine the true leader board.

At the start of this amazing promotion, we set out a number of guidelines in case there were players tied on the same number of points after the 12 freerolls were completed. Those guidelines were:

  • Should two players be tied on the same number of points, the player who had played in the most freerolls would be declared the higher points earner. For example, Player A and player B have 100 points each. Player A has played 12 freerolls, while Player 10 only played in 10. Therefore, Player A is the winner.
  • Should the players still be tied after this, the player with the most victories would be declared the higher points earner.
  • This process will be repeated for second place, third place etc should it be required.

It gives Pokernews great pleasure to reveal to you the winner of the $67,500 PokerNews PokerStars Freeroll Series leader board. Step forward “PTAlves” of Portugal, who wins $1,500! “PTAlves” missed the first five freerolls but more than made up for lost time in their final seven games. They won the seventh tournament on the schedule and then finished fourth in the Week 9 to accumulate 175 points.

“PTAlves” was pushed all the way by the chasing pack, none more so than “krzychuksu” of Poland and “kras80” of Bulgaria who each finished on 135 points. “krzychuksu” claimed second place after competing in all 12 freerolls, while “kras80” was present in 11 of them, only missing out on Week 3’s game.

Here is the leader board in full.

A special mention must go to “skiple” of Moldova, “ChipsFool” of the United Kingdom, “tomboy9991” of Finland and “T-Wienen” of Brazil who all ended with 100 points but missed out on prize money due to the criteria used to separate the players tied on equal points.
