But along with that FREE money, every player knows the league points will get them into the PokerNews League Final. The weekly tournaments award league points according to where players finish. One bonus point is awarded just for playing in each tournament; play each weekly tournament and accumulate 10 points.

Everyone can play in the $10,000 PokerNews League at PokerStars, regardless of where you got your PokerStars account. The only restriction is you must have a password for each event. The password will be released at PokerWorks 48 hours before each event begins in our News Flash.

Once you have your PokerStars account and are ready to play the $10,000 PokerNews League, you can pick one event where you earn double the amount of league points. Make sure you announce your 'wild card' tournament choice on the dedicated forum thread before the start of your chosen event. The double points’ award is only a one shot deal so choose wisely.

At the end of the 10 weekly tournaments, the top 27 players on the league leaderboard advance to the PokerStars League Final on December 21st at 21:00 EST (02:00 GMT). The $10,000 final will send the top 18 players home with cash:
