The $30,000 guaranteed PokerNews Main Event starts at 14:00 ET on Monday, July 9th, on the world's biggest online poker stage, PokerStars. Unfortunately, the qualifying period for this is over. The PokerStars lobby (as of post time) showed 447 players registered - we hope you are one of them since the PokerNews Main Event has a guaranteed prize pool of $30,000.
The PokerNews Main Event was open to new depositing players who opened their PokerStars account through PokerWorks between May 16th through the 30th and to existing PokerWorks' players who earned 150 VPPs through the same time period.
Starting with PokerStars' 15-minute blind structure and a big chip stack of 30,000, the PokerNews Main Event looks to pay out the top 90 places where a min cash will be worth about $78; reaching the final table should pay $423 and the winner will take home $5,625! We are not guaranteeing that, just running a ball-park figure to give you an idea of how much free money this tournament is worth.
Monday is the big day - good luck to everyone that's playing the event!
