Become a PokerStars Protégé & Play in 3 WCOOP Events for FREE!
The 2014 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) is just around the corner once again, coming this September at PokerStars.
How would you like a chance to play in three of these exciting WCOOP events, including the $5,200 WCOOP Main Event with a mind-blowing $10 million guarantee, for free?!
Better yet, how would you also like to be trained by one of the four best poker players in the world?
All of this can be yours, and more, thanks to an exciting new competition at PokerStars.
How to Get Involved
It's a rare opportunity to have a chance to become a protégé of one of these Team PokerStars Pros: Andre Akkari, Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Eugene Katchalov, and Vanessa Selbst.
Here is how you can get started to become one of the four lucky winners. Every day from July 20 to August 3 there will be four daily $5.50 tournaments. Each tournament, listed below, will allow you to not only compete for the prize pool that the buy-ins generate, but you also have the unique opportunity to be mentored by the poker pro listed in the tournament.
- 13.00 ET – Eugene Protégé Qualifier
- 14.00 ET – ElkY Protégé Qualifier
- 17.00 ET – Vanessa Protégé Qualifier
- 18.00 ET – Andre Protégé Qualifier
If you finish in the top two of any of these tournaments, you will be asked to record a one-minute video. This video will be reviewed by the poker pro from the designated tournament you won.
The mentor will then select his or her top two video selections, which will go to a public vote to see who gets the unique opportunity to be trained by this poker professional as well as a free tournament buy-in to three WCOOP tournaments including the 2014 WCOOP Main Event!
We're Not Done Yet!
The competition doesn't end here. Each of the four players that are selected as protégés will battle it out to become the ultimate protégé and be awarded a luxurious grand prize of a 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure package.
The player that cashes the most in the three free WCOOP events they were bought into will win this grand prize and ahead to the Bahamas in style this winter!
It doesn't get much better than that!
