PokerStars All Stars Season 1 - April 12-May 10

The Home Game series gives the greatest cash game players the chance to play rake-free as they compete against each other to prove they are the best and scoop big cash prizes.

What are the games?

Starting Wednesday, April 12, 2017, invited PokerStars players will play in two private online cash games that will run independently from each other:

  • The All Stars Table - a $10/$20 NLHE game
  • The Masters Table - a $1/$2 NLHE game

Both games will run from April 12-May 10 and in both games the rake will be 0%.

How to join the action

PokerStars will select players based on their long term winnings and skill, and invite them to one of the tables privately. Play at these tables is invitation only, and PokerStars decision is final. Players can be removed from the tables. Team PokerStars Pro will not be invited unless they qualify on merit.

Why play in these games if invited?

This is a great opportunity to showcase your poker skills in a rake-free cash game. In addition, there will be $100,000 in Leader Boards prizes running over the month, with prizes paid on May 18 on top of any winnings from the cash game.

With social media and press support, there will be a buzz around the games, and other PokerStars players will be encouraged to watch the action and share their comments. Big pots and crazy hands will be shared with a wider audience and the winners of each game will enjoy the kudos of being crowned the first Season 1 winners!

How to watch the action

All PokerStars players are invited to watch the high-stakes action live anytime during the series. Here’s how:

Leader Board

All Stars Leader Board: based on direct winnings from the $10/$20 table. Prizes will be cash.

Masters Leader Board: based on direct winnings from the $1/$2 table. Prizes will be cash. The top five players will also be invited to join the All Stars game in Season 2. 

Prizes will be paid on May 18.
