Big money weekend looms at PokerStars & Down Under
We firmly believe there is no rest for the wicked, nor rest for a wicked-good poker schedule. None of the the PokerStars Blog team from the PCA has fully recovered from the jet lag and Bahama Mamas, but there is no time to rest. No time at all. There is a weekend of coverage and money-making opportunities ahead.
If you're up for a big weekend yourself, here's what you need to know.
MEGA BONUS LAST CHANCE
You have just a few more days to cash in on the PokerStars Mega Bonus. If you make a deposit of $30 or more using the code MEGA2016 you will get a prize anywhere from a .50 $1 Million Spin & Go ticket or up to $100,000 in cash. You will get the prize with no play requirements and no restrictions. If you get a $100,000 prize like Belarus' sarcasmpoker just did, you can cash it out without playing a single hand if you want.
But, the promotion is only open until January 24, so you will need to get on it today. For full details, visit the PokerStars Mega Bonus home page.

AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE
We're also not going to be backing off our live poker coverage. Our team is assembling in Melbourne for the Aussie Millions Main Event.
Last year, Melbourne local Manny Stavropoulos won the Aussie Millions Main Event. Now, the live poker world is getting together for the 2016 running of Australia's most prestigious poker event.
Our coverage will kick off here on Sunday for Day 1A of the Aussie Millions Main Event. We'll have Aussie Millions live updates from the first flop to the last river.
MASSIVE TCOOP WEEEKEND
As you might have read earlier today in TCOOP 2016: New titles from Down Under to Deutschland, the Turbo Championship of Online Poker is already underway. Yesterday, one player turned a $27 buy-in into $110,000 in the matter of a few hours.
You have that same chance this weekend with some huge TCOOP events. Here's what's on offer between now and Sunday night.
