PokerStars launches Battle of the Planets

BOP_thumbnail_13_3_08.jpgPokerStars players have always controlled the stars. Now it's time for a Battle of the Planets.

PokerStars has just introduced its first SNG Tournament Leader Board. Battle of the Planets is a weekly competition that promises to pay out more than $3 million a year to SNG players.

Whether you play $2 games or $500 tournaments, the Battle of the Planets has a competition for you. All PokerStars players will be able to compete in eight different planetary divisions from Mercury to Jupiter (sorry, Pluto!) for SNG tournament leader board prize pools ranging from $3,000 to $10,000.

One of the greatest things about the new SNG TLB is that it gives both casual and high-volume players a shot at winning. PokerStars has divised Low Orbit and High Orbit comeptitions. Low Orbit competitors will compete in blocks of 20 SNGs at a time, while High Orbit players will fight it out in 100-game blocks. The monthly prize pools are divided equally between the two Orbits.

If you do well in the Battle, you will have a chance to fight in the war. Players who finish in the top ten spots of any of the planetary divisions will move on to the monthly $50,000 triple shootout.

The competition runs from Sunday to Saturday. For complete information, visit the PokerStars Battle of the Planets web page.
