PokerStars launches All Star Week

allstarweek_thn.jpgMaybe you've turned on the TV and watched Greg Raymer play and thought, "Well, I might be able to beat him if I really try." Or maybe you sat down to play WCOOP and mused, "If I get sat with ElkY, I'm going to show him what I can do."

Well, now is your chance to show Team PokerStars Pro what you have in your personal poker arsenal.

PokerStars just announced its first All Star Week. From March 23 to 29, PokerStars will be hosting a series of heads up matches between a brand new All Star team and Team PokerStars Pro. There's cash and pride on the line.

The All Star team will be made up of people who have won a 2008 Sunday Million event, final tabled WCOOP tournaments, finished high on the Tournament Leader Board, or made it to Supernova Elite. PokerStars will also be offering wildcards from a list of people who win special $11 All Star Week qualifying tournaments. For more on how you can qualify, see the PokerStars All Star Week qualifying page.

There's cash on the line in the amount of $1,000 per match. Each team could win up to $20,000 during the week.

PokerStars will also be hosting a series of All Star Week Fan tournaments for only 100 Frequent Player Points. You pick the team you think will win the heads-up challenge. Every time one of the teams win, $1,000 will be added to the respective Fan tournament prize pool. You can't enter both, so pick the right team today.

For full information on the promotion, be sure to check out the PokerStars All Star Week page.
