PokerStars.fr is giving all French players the opportunity to challenge members of Team PokerStars Pro live at the Cercle Haussmann in Paris on September 14, 2010. But before you face the best poker players in the world, you need to prove yourself by qualifying online at PokerStars.
Each winner at the end of the online qualifiers gets to create a team with two friends of their choice. The team will then travel to Paris in mid-September to compete against Team PokerStars Pro in a series of heads-up matches. If a team wins at least two matches, PokerStars will reward them with a year’s worth of Sunday Special tickets (or four months worth of Sunday Special tickets for each member of the team). If your team loses, each player will receive two Sunday Special Tickets.
Qualifiers for the Team Pro Challange have now ended. ‘deneck’, ‘looups’ and ‘snopa’ all made it through and went to Paris with their team mates to compete against Team PokerStars Pro. Here’s how they did:
