PokerStars USA is known as a top provider of online poker tournaments, both in the US and worldwide, so it comes as no surprise that they are bringing a number of exciting poker tournaments this October.
For Pennsylvania players, the operator has prepared a lucrative $350,000 guaranteed prize pool in the upcoming Pennsyl-MANIA tournament, which begins at 5 pm ET on Sunday, October 24.
The tournament comes as a part of a special PokerStars promotion that includes the three states where it operates: Pennsylvania, Michigan and New Jersey sites. Similar tournaments will be launched in all three states.
The series are a repeat of tournaments PokerStars held last April. In that previous run, the Pennsyl-MANIA tournament featured a slightly higher guarantee of $400,000.
In order to compete, players will need to be physically located in Pennsylvania and pay a $300 buy-in, or win their seat through one of the numerous satellites and Depositor’s Freerolls leading up to the event.
Depositing players at PokerStars PA will have a chance to compete for up to $15,000 in Pennsyl-MANIA tickets in Depositor’s Freerolls, while lucrative deposit bonus offers are also there to give everyone a chance at participating in the event.
To enter the Depositor’s Freeroll, simply deposit at least $30 into your account using promo code PAMANIA21 and you will have a chance at winning one of the 50 direct entry tickets.
Another option for players trying to make it into Pennsyl-MANIA is through regular satellite tournaments that started on October 12, or to look for tickets given away through $3 Spin & Go’s.
New series follows successful PACOOP
The Pennsyl-MANIA tournament comes on the heels of the biggest PokerStars tournament series in the state so far, the Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker (PACOOP), which took place between September 10 and 27.
PACOOP accumulated a total prize pool of more than $2.38 million. The Main Event winner in the series, “Hondoribbia,” took home about $36,000.
Compared to the PACOOP Main Event, the Pennsyl-MANIA tournament will feature the same $300 buy-in, but the $350,000 guaranteed prize pool promises that the best players in the field will take home even bigger prizes.
PokerStars PA ambassadors also showed in full force for the PACOOP, with Mark Foresta making four final tables and Keith Becker coming third in Event #64. The group are expected to show up for Pennsyl-MANIA as well.
Bonuses Galore for PokerStars PA Players
