Meet your hero Neymar Jr in Barcelona

How does this sound? Two tickets to an FC Barcelona game? Seven nights in a four star hotel for you and a guest, travel expenses, and free entry into a €2,150 EPT Barcelona festival side event of your choice?

Oh, and how about meeting Neymar Jr while you're there?

Well today we'll explain how you can win this once in a lifetime trip to watch Neymar Jr play, and maybe even take him on in a heads-up game of poker to win a package to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.

So how do you get started? All you need to do is take part in one of our special "Neymar Jr Final" tournaments, the first of which will be held on Wednesday June 17, on PokerStars, starting at 18.00 CET (18.00 GMT, 14.00 ET), with three more scheduled on June 24, July 1, and 8.


There's $100,000 in added cash to be won as well as the little things, like unique Neymar Jr card protectors. But it's the top three places you want to reach as that will win you a free prize package to Barcelona.

That's when you'll get an invitation to meet Neymar Jr at the TV shoot for the upcoming PokerStars TV show 'The Duel', with a chance for a PokerStars group photo with the man himself which is destined to be your desktop/phone/tablet wall paper for the rest of your life. Just don't use it to replace the photo of grandma on the mantel piece.

Not only that but one person in the audience will be randomly selected to play heads-up poker against Neymar Jr. If that's you then Neymar Jr, a sporting icon, is all that stands between you and a trip to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas in January, a package worth more than $15,000.

All right, so let's take a step back a bit. How do we get to play in one of these $100,000 Neymar Jr finals?

Well, you'll be glad to hear you have several options, including Special $1,000 freerolls and random draws that could select you from your random table and award you a ticket to a Neymar Jr Final -- all of which you can find right now on our Meet Neymar Jr homepage, which also has a few of the rules you'll need to take note of before entering.

You don't even need to make a deposit. All you need is a PokerStars account and the freeroll password, which will be posted on Neymar Jr's Facebook and Twitter pages later today. Now might be a good time to make sure you're following him.

So check out the details on the homepage and then start dreaming of Barcelona.
