Do you want to know who the best No-Limit Hold’em cash game players in the world are?
And who would win if they were matched up in a month-long, rake-free cash-game series?
You’re not alone.
PokerStars’ new All Stars Cash Game series begins next month with an invite-only lineup of the game’s best willing to battle it out for both bragging rights and an extra $100,000 in leaderboard prizes.
All Stars, Masters Square Off
Here’s how it’ll work: Two cash-game tables will run independently from each other for the duration of of the series (April 12-May 10). Both will be No-Limit Texas Hold’em and both will be entirely rake free.
The two tables are:
The All Stars Table – $10/$20 No-Limit Hold’em
The Masters Table – $1/$2 No-Limit Hold’em
To fill the seats PokerStars has invited a selection of players based on their long-term winnings and skill. Players won’t necessarily be PokerStars pros unless they have qualified on the merits of their cash-game prowess.
Players can also be removed from the tables if they don’t measure up. $100,000 in Leaderboard prizes will be on the table as added incentive along with plenty of social media and press coverage.
Leaderboard bonuses will be paid out based on direct winnings from the tables. Prizes will be in cash and the top five players will be invited to join All Stars Season 2.
