PokerStars 10th Anniversary: Radio show back with prizes

December 01, 2011


PokerStars Radio is back. Following its popular run during this year’s WCOOP series, the show returns for a one-off broadcast to coincide with this Sunday’s World Record Tournament on PokerStars.

PokerStars is always giving you something extra, and this show is no different. With prize giveaways, phone-ins, special guests and exclusive tournaments, you won’t want to miss out. Hosted by Joe Stapleton and Nick Wealthall, it starts at 5pm (GMT) on Sunday, half an hour before the World Record attempt begins. Here’s what you can look forward to:

Depositor Freeroll
Make a real money deposit with the bonus code given out on the show, and you’ll get a ticket for a freeroll on December 18. Finish in the top 20, and you’ll win an entry to the $215 10th Anniversary Sunday Million special edition that starts straight after the freeroll. It’s got a guaranteed prize pool of $10,000,000, including a life-changing $2,000,000 set aside for first place.*

Call-in spot prizes
During the show, 10 lucky callers will win a 10th Anniversary package that includes a special edition hat, t-shirt and card protector, from the PokerStars VIP Store. What’s more, one extra-lucky caller will win a Citizen watch, worth 26,500 FPPs.

World Record Second Chance
If you miss out on winning big in the 10th Anniversary World Record Tournament, there’s a special Second Chance event running after the main tourney, at 6pm GMT on December 4, with a buy-in of just $1. On top of the prize pool, there will also be 100 $11 tickets added for the special edition of the Sunday Storm on December 11, which has a guaranteed prize pool of $1,000,000. You can only register for this second chance event using the exclusive password given out on the radio show.

You’ll be able to listen in via the PokerStars Radio page, so bookmark it now. The broadcast will be in English only.

The PokerStars World Record Tournament kicks-off on Sunday at 5.30pm (GMT), aiming to beat our own previous record of just over 149,000. Please note the tournament is limited to 200,000 players, and with 121,000 already registered, you should sign-up now to avoid disappointment. It’s just $1 to enter.

Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu said: “It’s pretty amazing how far PokerStars has come in 10 years. This World Record Tournament celebrating the 10th Anniversary is a special event, and the best part about it is that you can be a part of history for a buck! Quite a feather in your cap to say you won the biggest poker tournament in history.”

Good luck if you are taking part, and enjoy the Radio Show.

Finally, a reminder for those who happen to be in Prague on Sunday (and as it’s the day before EPT Prague begins, that’ll be a fair few). PokerStars is laying on a special room in the Prague Hilton where players are invited to bring along their laptops and take part in the World Record Tournament together. Team PokerStars Pros and special guests will be doing the same, making for a fun event. Oh, and free drinks and other goodies will add to the atmosphere! More info can be found here.

* Please Note: Eligible deposits must be made in the time between the code being announced on the show and the beginning of the freeroll at 19:00 GMT on December 18.
