    This $2,500 second chance freebuy tournament is open to both new and existing PokerStars players.

PokerNews readers who created their PokerStars accounts via our links and who used our marketing codes during the creation of those accounts, are invited to play in a monthly tournament with a $2,500 prize pool.

Each of these special PokerNews Freebuy 2nd Chance tournaments are played as no-limit hold'em on nine-handed tables, see everyone sit with 2,500 chips, play to 10-minute blinds and they only cost a single StarsCoin to enter once you have had your ticket credited to your account.

The second chance element of the tournament gives anyone who busts from the tournament during the first hour or play another shot at the prize pool. Should you bust during the first hour of the tournament, you can reenter for one StarsCoin and continue your quest to win a share of the $2,500 prize pool.
