Share this
Is your DVR still smoking from replaying gold medal ceremonies? Are you choking on chlorine every day in an attempt to relive Michael Phelps' swims? Are you, in other words, suffering from withdrawal from the ending of the Olympics?

Maybe PokerStars has a cure.

Welcome to the PokerStars Summer Games.

You'll only be battling Canada if you're American, but you will represent your country - and you don't have to enter the pool to do it.

Plus there's a share of more than 80,000 cash prizes and 80 places in the U.S.A. versus Canada $100,000 final.

You'll do it in eight weeks of poker action, with a different game for every week.

Interested? Well, first download PokerStars. You'll get an exclusive PokerWorks bonus of $25 free in addition to a 100 percent matching bonus up to $50. You must enter the marketing code of POKERWORKS upon registration and the bonus code of FIRST2008 upon your first deposit.

Here's how the rest works.

Tournaments have already started. The next one, shorthanded NLHE, takes place starting Sept. 5.

Here's the best part. Qualifiers for the tournaments take place once a day and are free. That's right. They're free.

You only get one free entry per week, but you can play in practice games all week. Hey, this is the Summer Games! They don't let just anyone into the Olympics either.

To register for the qualifier, open the PokerStars lobby, click "Tourney" and then "Regional."
