#PS100K challenge, 8: Get a star to re-tweet, win a $530 WCOOP ticket

ps_news_thn.jpgDo you want to win a ticket into WCOOP-13: $530 NL Hold'em [6-Max, Knockout]? Of course you do. The two-day tournament, which takes place 6 September, has a $500,000 guarantee and thousands of dollars in bounties up for grabs. Each player you knock out will instantly pocket you $101. You just have to win the ticket in our @PokerStars Twitter #PS100K promotion first.

In yesterday's challenge we asked you to tell us who you thought the greatest EPT champ was. The heaviest hitter turned our, perhaps unsurprisingly, to be Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand 'Elky' Grospellier. The PCA winner is a fan favourite with an incredible string of High Roller successes to back up his claim. Today's challenge is more of a, well, challenge, but with a $530 WCOOP ticket and an additional $1,000 for the #PS100K freeroll up for grabs it's certainly worth a shot.

Challenge number eight: Aug 16
Whomever gets the biggest single re-tweet of the following message from someone who is not famous for poker wins the WCOOP ticket.

'Congratulations to @PokerStars for hitting 100,000 followers #PS100K [insert your twitter name here]'

Add your Twitter name into the message above so that we can track the winner! As a bonus we'll kick in another $1,000 if that person has in excess of 100,000 followers themselves. But let's re-iterate: the person can't have their following because of poker. So that means no Daniel Negreanu or Victoria Coren. The #PS100K freeroll, which is taking place on 20 August, is already up to $14,000. Just make sure that you have followed the steps below ('Get involved') if you want to take part.


Getting a re-tweet from Mozart (here at EPT Vienna) would probably do it
