In less than a week PokerStars will host the PokerNews $20,000 Freeroll but you still have time to qualify for this FREE tournament. To join the race for your share of the $20K prize pool the first thing you should do is download the PokerStars online poker software and make your first deposit before the end of the qualification period which is Friday, January 27th.
However, the download and deposit only apply to new PokerStars players. Existing players need to earn 45 VPPs by the end of January 27th as well in order to play the Freeroll. The only requirement for both new and existing PokerStars players is a PokerWorks’ referred account*.
The PokerStars $20,000 freeroll runs next Tuesday, January 31st at 14:00 EST (19:00 GMT) and only players who register at PokerStars via PokerWorks and meet the qualification requirements will be able to play the free tournament. If you joined PokerStars before December 20th, 2011, (the start of the qualification period) you need 45 VIP Player Points in your account in order to play the $20,000 freeroll. However, if you're new to PokerStars and registered after December 20th all you need to do is make your first deposit and you're good to go.
