Play Against PokerStars Pro Boris Becker On The Green, Not The Grass Court

Share this
PokerStars is giving you the chance to play against Boris Becker.

Yeah, we know what you're thinking. Why the hell would I want that? I don't play tennis, and even if I did, he'd probably kill me.

Maybe so, but this isn't on the grass court at Wimbeldon (where Becker won three titles). It's on the green felt across a poker table. And sure, Becker's pretty good at that too - he's a PokerStars Pro, after all - but you want to play this match.

A seat to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is on the line, after all.

You'll get to play Becker heads-up, but first you have to earn the privilege.

First, Pokerstars is running a series of daily "Battle Boris" freerolls and FPP qualifiers from now until Nov. 8. The two freerolls start at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Eastern Time, and the tournaments that cost only 10 FPP points start at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Time.

The top 50 places win seats to the weekly finals, and the top 100 places win seats in the FPP tournaments.

The players from the final table in the weekly finals will make it to the Nov. 16 grand finals. And the top three players from those two tournaments go to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure to face Boris Becker heads-up. The rest, players four through nine, win $250, and 10-18 win $200. Even finishing 54th will net you $50.

Win against Becker and you can sit in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure right across the room.

Do you want your shot against Becker? Download PokerStars now and 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.

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure runs from Jan. 5-10, 2009. Play to face your chance against Becker today. You won't even have to face his wicked serve.
