Passport Tournament - PokerStars

Last year, a player by the name of Dustin Mele spent the year traveling from major tournament after major tournament and his stops included the World Series of Poker and European Poker Tour destinations such as London, Barcelona and Monte Carlo. All of this was possible through PokerStars.

This holiday season, PokerStars is bringing back the most interesting promotion in online poker. Billed as PokerStars Passport, this innovative Tournament Leader Board promotion gives online players the chance to win their way to virtually any large live tournament. The online poker leader is going to be giving away over $200,000 in cash and tournament prize packages as a reward to players who score high on December’s Tournament Leader Board. This the biggest Tournament Leader Board (TLB) promotion anywhere online!

Basically, the way it works is that every player that finishes the month in the top 1000 is given the opportunity to play for what is called a 1-stamp PokerStars Passport. In addition, the top 100 players get a chance to compete for a complete 6-stamp Passport. Those receiving passports can use them to enter any Main event sponsored by PokerStars anywhere in the world, included the European and Latin American Poker Tours, the Asia Pacific Poker Tour or the World Series of Poker

Destinations featured on the above list include London, Barcelona, Rio, Sydney and of course, Las Vegas.
