Online Poker Tour (OPT) Tournament....

Congratulations to MurryTheCat Ranked ranked #1

Next game at Carbon

PokerStars is kicking off an eight-week-long promotion called the
Summer Games that pits Canadians vs. Americans in a fight to snag some of the more than80,000 cash prizes to be given away and seats in the $100,000 final, and it started Friday, Aug. 22.

Each week features a different poker variation, and players get one
free round-one entry for each week's poker variant. Each country has a separate set of tournaments, and the free entry can be used for any of the round-one Summer Games tournaments running during that week for the player's home country.

Those who finish well enough in the round-one event move on to that
week's round-two final, and the weekly finals send five players from
each country to the $100,000 main event. Then, the next week, players can try their hands at a different poker variation with another free round-one entry.

The round-one and round-two events aren't just qualifiers, though; plenty of cash prizes are being awarded in each tournament. Here's the schedule of events:

    own decision. Read my blog about RossoPoker at the forum.
