A brand new Throwable has been released this week – the fish and lure. With it, you can reel in opponents and belittle their play till your heart’s content. When it comes to throwing things, there’s perhaps nothing better than a floppy fish, so don’t miss out.
To get the latest Throwable, your challenge is to knock out three players in either a tournament or cash game, whichever you find easiest. You have until July 13.
Be sure to “Opt in” via the “Challenges” window to take part. Full details are here.
Stadium Series is still over a week away, with the first Heat taking place on July 5. You can start preparing now by checking out the satellites, Spin N Gos and Challenges available to win tickets.
You can find $4 and $22 Spin N Gos which both offer $5,200 Main Event tickets as their top prize, as well as tickets to other events, so playing these is an excellent way to stockpile tickets.
Satellites include Fast Track games. They work in rounds, so you can buy-in at any level and make it through shootouts to progress and gain entry to Stadium Series events. You can find all games and satellites under the “Stadium Series” tab on the PokerStars lobby.
You can also take part in the Stadium Series Trials challenge. Your mission is simple. Earn 1 point for every $1 you spend on MTT buy-ins. Those at the top end of the leaderboard when the challenge finishes on August 1 will win Stadium Series Fast Track and Final Table tickets, worth up to $5,200. Opt in via the “Challenges” window to get started.
You can also find special Stadium Series ticket drops in certain tournaments throughout the weekend. For example, we’re giving away 1,000+ tickets in the Sunday Million, 1,400 in the Sunday Storm, and thousands more tickets in the Daily Supersonic and Daily Mini-Marathon. Play in these games to randomly win tickets. It’s all part of the added value of the Stadium Series.
