Power Up and win share of $5,000 and first Championship title

February 07, 2019inNews

There is a vacancy along the corridors of Power Up. The new game requires a first champion.

That means bragging rights, but also a share of $5,000 in prize money. True, you can’t cash in the former, but the $3,000 set aside for the winner can be spent anywhere.

The final will be streamed live on Twitch on Saturday 23 February. And, there’s still time for Power Up players to take part.

First you need to qualify.

You can get the details of how on the Power Up homepage. But he’s a quick recap.

Start by opting in via your Challenge Window in the PokerStars lobby.

Then, get busy playing Power Up games.

These three-handed contests award points depending on how you finish. Those points will move you up (and someone else down) the Power Up Leader board, with the top positions advancing to the semi-finals.

You can also win cash prizes when you complete challenges.

There are two tiers, with three players advancing from the Masters leader board (games with buy ins of $1 and $3). While six players will advance from the Grand Master leader board (games with buy ins of $7 and $15). The higher the buy-in, the more points you’ll earn.

Keep track of your progress on the Power Up tab. But hurry. You only have until the end of Sunday to play and qualify.

To start playing, or to find out more, go to the Power Up homepage.
