Win with Katerina at VIP Club All-In Shootout
Three players will compete. One of them is a woman. Considering that we at PokerStars Women might be a wee-bit biased, we're pretty sure that the female participant will win.
The newest member of Team Online, Katerina "Katerina289" Malasidou, will take on fellow Team Online players Alex "Kanu7" Millar and Luka "LukaSteel" Kovac at the upcoming VIP Club: Live in Stockholm. The three will battle it out in tests of Swedish trivia, juggling, and slot-car racing for the title of VIP Club champion and a sweet trophy. Bragging rights go without saying.
You can compete, too!
You won't get to juggle or race cars, though, because your battle is on the PokerStars online poker tables.
Simply deposit $10 or more using the bonus code STOCKHOLM before 11:55 ET April 26 to receive your ticket to the $15K All-In Shootout for Saturday, May 3.
Register for one of the three All-In Shootout tournaments listed for May 3 at 15:00 ET by choosing the one with the name of the Team Online Pro you think will win the VIP Club battle. Obviously, the best choice is the "Katerina 'Katerina289' Malasidou to win" tournament.
When Katerina wins, you'll be able to play the Shootout that you registered for (if you chose her). And the best part of the freeroll is that you don't even have to be online to play, as every player is automatically pushed all-in on every hand until there is one player standing. The winner of that All-In Shootout will receive a trip for that person and a guest to a 2014 VIP Club: Live event of their choice with expenses paid (flights for two, three nights' hotel accommodations, $300 spending money), as well as 10% of a particular Team Online member's winnings in the SCOOP 2014 $1,050 Medium Main Event.
Second through eighth places in that tournament also receive 10% of a chosen Team Online member's winnings in the SCOOP $1,050 Medium Main Event. It will make for a fun sweat!
The important dates here are:
April 26: Deadline for registering for your All-In Shootout ticket
April 26: VIP Club: Live challenge to take place in Stockholm
May 3: All-In Shootout if your Team Online member won the challenge
Of course, you can choose any of the three Team Online members to win, as they all "technically" have an even chance of victory. We'll just say that Katerina has been studying her Swedish trivia, practicing her juggling skills, and gearing up for the slot-car race. In our unbiased and completely objective opinion, we believe she has the edge in all three competitions.
Here is the face of the probable winner:
