Top 1000 TLB leaders get shot at World Series seats

There used to be a time when the PokerStars Tournament Leader Board was more about pride than anything else. These days, doing well on the TLB can pretty much make a person's year (and if you don't believe me, just ask PokerStars Passport winner Dustin Mele). From freerolls to live event buy-ins, and yes, to still a great deal of pride, the PokerStars TLB is just another reason most of the world's top online tournament players hit the PokerStars tables.

Now, we see yet another reason. PokerStars has announced that the top 1,000 players on the PokerStars TLB (as of May 31 at 23:59:59) will have a shot at more than $165,000 in prizes, including ten $12,000 2008 World Series Main Event packages. The top 100 players in the freeroll will walk away with at least some cash.

The tournament runs on June 8 at 13:30 ET.
