Say hello to the Saturday Countdown by getting ready to play the action packed Saturday tournament lineup at PokerStars. PokerStars has introduced a completely new tournament format - Time Tourney - and the Saturday Countdown is part of what's in store for you.
Time Tourneys are a completely new tournament format. You have choices on how long you want to play and the stakes you want to invest in. The tournament runs for a set period of time and once the time limit has been reach, the prize pool is disbursed depending on the players’ stacks. The Saturday Countdown lasts for 120 minutes. Take that two hours and amass a small fortune and then get ready for more action as the day goes on to take you right into PokerStars big money Sunday tournaments.
PokerWorks (in a special partnership with PokerNews) will be hosting a satellite that will send 100 winners to the Saturday Countdown and kick off the celebration of the new event. The satellite starts on Friday, October 28th at 15:00 ET (19:00 GMT) with a $2+$0.20 buy-in. Just use the password "POKERNEWS" when you sign up for the satellite. Once you pick up your FREE entry to the Saturday Countdown, get ready to play the first event on October 29th.
Everyone is welcome to play the PokerWorks Saturday Countdown Satellite, no matter where you got your PokerStars account. All you need is the password.
In keeping with the spirit of celebrating the Saturday Countdown launch, PokerStars is doubling the guarantees in all of the Saturday lineup tournaments THIS weekend. An unheard of $20,000 guarantee is attached to the Saturday Countdown and you could be stacking a big share by playing the PokerWorks' $2.20 satellite.
