Key Dates and Event Information

The PokerStars Festival opened on 14 July with an open tournament. The guaranteed prize pot that day was 50,000,000 KWR. From July 16 to 19, players from across the globe enjoyed PokerStars' Super Deep. A number of events are still being played out, the PokerStars Main Event started on 20 July and is expected to finish on 24 July, as is the PokerStars Cup and NLH - Megastack. With a combined guaranteed prize pool of 58,750,000, the buy-in option to the event was well worth it - at least for some.

PokerStars player advances in the tournament

With few days to go, the main event at the PokerStars Festival Korea is being dominated by numerous strong players, including PokerStars' Celina Lin and Randy Lew. On Day 1c, PokerStars' Randy "Nanonoko" Lew was one of 38 players who managed to successfully progress through 12 levels of play. This, however, didn't come easy for the PokerStars' player who had to overcome a major slip-up in the concluding stages.
