Don't Miss Out on Huge Cash in the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League

Don't Miss Out on Huge Cash in the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League 0001

There are only two weeks left in the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League!

Don’t miss out on your last chances to climb up the leaderboard in the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League. It will still be easy to secure a spot in the PokerStars League Final, so start playing now.

With only two events left it is ”AJEI” who sits atop the leaderboard with a huge 73 points. The last two weeks have been very impressive for “AJEI” as they managed victories in two consecutive league events.

As you can see below, “AJEI” has put themselves in good position to sit at the top of the leaderboard after their performance in just two tournaments. As there are still two events left, you too could find yourself skyrocketing up the leaderboard.

It’s definitely not too late to catch "AJEI" and this especially true if players consider that “AJEI’s” rise to the top came because of success in just two events. With two events left and the opportunity to use your wild card, you too could climb the leaderboard.
