The heat is on in the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League; with three events remaining you want to start playing NOW or you'll miss all the fun and money that could be yours for the taking.
It appears that "Kanabal18" has a strong lock on 1st place in the $10,000 PokerNews League Leaderboard - it's the first time a player has managed to pick up an almost 20 point lead. If the truth is known, "Kanabal18" managed to jump into a solid first place standing by playing in just two events; winning league events in consecutive weeks, he took down 21 points in last week's league event. He chose to use his Wild Card and it added 42 points to his total.
Everyone is going to be chasing "Kanabal18" but it's not too difficult to play catch-up with three events left:
|8:||Nov. 30 at 21:00 EST (02:00 GMT) — $3+$0.3 PL 6-max ($100 added)|
|9:||Dec. 7 at 21:00 EST (02:00 GMT) — $3+$0.3 NL Deep Stack Full Ring ($100 added)|
|10:||Dec. 14 at 21:00 EST (02:00 GMT) — $3+$0.3 NL Heads-Up ($100 added)|
$10,000 PokerNews League Leaderboard
Unfortunately PokerStars has made the decision to remove their team of pros from the competition. The following is the original arrangement that was made and it is now changed - there will be NO pros playing this league with a bounty on their head. PokerWorks apologizes but unfortunately it is out of our control.
PokerStars Pros are playing in your leagues!
It's fun, it's fantastic, it's exciting - you get to play against a number of Team PokerStars Pros and each one you take out of action will give you a $200 bounty.

Just go to PokerWorks Face Book page and scroll the posts for the League event. Leave your player ID name and the league event of your choice in a comment.
