The PokerNetwork League will run over ten weeks, with tournaments on Sunday and Wednesday nights both starting at 20:00 AEST. All tournaments are $20+$2 to enter, and will be hosted exclusively at PokerStars, with a variety of games including Holdem, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven Card Stud, Razz and H.O.R.S.E.. Each tournament will award points toward the leaderboard, and after the last league tournament on August 8, the top nine players on the leaderboard will face off in the final.
The winner of the PokerNetwork League will receive a prize package to the inaugural PokerNews Cup which will take place at Crown Casino from October 21-29. The package includes entry into the PokerNews Cup Main Event (valued at AUD$3000), six nights accommodation at the Crown Promenade Hotel and a further $500 cash for travel and expenses (to be credited to your PokerStars account). The winner will also get to be part of Team PokerNews and be invited to exclusive functions and events.
