If you love poker, you've probably dreamed of traveling the world, playing tournaments, maybe even hitting that big score.
PokerStars is giving you a chance to live that dream.
Meet Dustin Mele. He won the PokerStars Passport last year and traveled all over the world just to play in some the biggest poker tournaments. Free!
You can be the next Mele, if you'd like.
First, 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.
Then start playing tournaments. Like, a lot of tournaments. You'll want a spot on the Tournament Leader Board. Get one in the top 1,000, and you'll get a free chance to play for a one-stamp PokerStars Passport.
If you do even better and finish in the top 100 on December's leader board, you'll get a shot at a six-stamp passport.
What are the stamps? Those are the places you can go to play poker. If you have one stamp, you get one shot to travel to London, Rio, Barcelona or anywhere else PokerStars sponsors a tournament. That's pretty much all over the world these days.
The top 100 tournament starts on Jan. 18 and the final table all pays impressive money, from $1,000 to a one-stamp passport to third place to a three-stamp for second and a six-stamp passport for first.
But even the top 1,000 will play in one of three tournaments, so you'll see a reduced field for your shot at a passport, with additional payouts down the line, including thousands for the top few spots.
All you can really do is get a spot on that leader board, then PokerStars will take care of the rest. The big score is up to you.
