PokerStars is in the midst of a celebration of sorts this week and is inviting players to take part in its Team Online Week for a chance to compete against its pro roster and win bonus cash and free coaching sessions.
Team Online Week began on October 28 and will run through November 3 culminating in a $25,000 guaranteed freeroll at 13:00 ET on the 3rd. Players can earn a ticket to the freeroll simply by making a deposit between now and then and using the bonus code TEAMONLINE.
During the course of the week, 20 Team PokerStars Online members will be sitting in at the Zoom Poker $0.02/$0.04 tables. Play against any online pro and show a profit and PokerStars will dole out a cash reward ten times that of what you earned on the felt. No need to calculate your winnings versus the pro players, as PokerStars will do that automatically. To find out which pro is playing and when, follow the Twitter account at @PSTeamOnline.
If you have never checked out the Team PokerStars Online short films on PokerStars.tv, you might want to. New video selections will be added this week and PokerStars is encouraging its loyal players to also get involved. Submit a film of your own up to three minutes in length that tells your poker story and you could win a PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) package valued in excess of $15,000.
Although that PCA package to the sunny Caribbean in January 2014 is the first place prize, there are additional cash prizes to be won. Bonuses in the amount of $500 will also go to the directors of the runner-up short films that manage to impress Team PokerStars Online. To enter, you must upload your film to YouTube and email the link to email@example.com.
Would you like a free poker coaching session from Team PokerStars Pros Randy Lew or Ike Haxton? You can win that prize by visiting PokerSchoolOnline and watching some videos. For more information on that valuable coaching offer, go to the PokerStars Poker School page.
Part of the Team PokerStars Online Week festivities is dedicated to introducing two new players to the team. Marc-Andre ‘FrenchDawg’ Ladouceur and Alex ‘Kanu7’ Millar are the newest pros who would like to remind loyal PokerStars players that becoming a member of the team is open to anyone.
Those who would like to be considered must first achieve the status of Supernova or Supernova Elite and typically play at higher limits than $4 No-Limit Hold’em. If you meet those qualifications, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. PokerStars is always looking for new Team Online pros to represent the world’s leading poker site.
