Your weekend to do list on PokerStars
Looking for something to do this weekend? Start here...
All the weekend majors are on the card this weekend, culminating in the Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday Million. Merin09 and swonnny won them last weekend, taking a share of combined prize pools worth more than $1.6 million.
The weekend action is not limited to those two events. Check into the PokerStars lobby at any point to check out what's in store, with a full list of last week's winners giving you some idea of what we mean.
For players who prefer the view from their armchair events in Macau should provide some excitement over the weekend. That's where the Asia Championship of Poker will conclude, with the Main Event down to 17 players at the time of writing.
Macau is typically a tournament venue good for drama, helped by the quality of the field this year which was dotted with high rollers from Europe and the United States making the trip. Make that South America too, specifically Brazil, represented by among others Team PokerStars SportStar Ronaldo Nazário.
You can read live coverage of everything that's happened so far from Macau, as well as everything that will happen between now and a winner being declared, on our live coverage page.

It's podcast time again. As always it's best letting the team do the talking ...
"Joe is finally back in New Jersey, while James remains in London. But an ocean can't keep them apart! On the agenda this week: Joe's impersonation of a billionaire industrialist, a round-up of the WSOP Main Event final table, and a brief discussion of this year's Poker Hall of Fame inductees (complete with bonus contest). Plus, the latest TV show is put under the microscope, as the boys talk to online qualifier Cory Pansano about his 'Shark Cage' experience. There's also a special message from Pagan Events about one of next year's EPT festivals. Things get serious when Joe comes to the assistance of a Superfan in need, and James provides some useful tips on how to protect your PokerStars account. Finally, Michael Uong sets out to prove he knows more about soccer than Joe in 'Superfan vs Stapes'." #EPTNotLive
The fifth episode of Season 2 of Shark Cage is now available, with a line that guarantees fun. This episode features Ronaldo Nazário and Tito Ortiz, as well as poker pros Jake Cody and Sam Grafton. Punches will not be pulled.
To look forward to
As we wrote about today the UKIPT is heading back to Edinburgh later this month.
Last year Dean Hutchison defeated Team Pro Liv Boeree heads-up, a feat that almost involved ignored a fascinating city beyond the tournament room walls. Could you do the same? Read about the event here, along with details of how to qualify.
All that's left to say is good luck at the tables this weekend. Tell us all about it on Twitter @PokerStarsBlog
