Want to be a STAR?

A wise poker player once told me that the fastest route to the top was to learn from those already there, and that's the exact opportunity we're giving you for this year's WCOOP.

The Protégé is a groundbreaking new promotion in which four lucky players will be taken under the wing of Team PokerStars and treated to exclusive one-on-one training from some of the game's most successful online pros.

What's more, each protégé will be entered into three WCOOP tournaments - including the $10 million guaranteed Main Event - with the individual showing the highest earnings being crowned the ultimate Protégé and winning a PCA package!

The eclectic lineup of Pros guiding the way are Andre Akkari, Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier, Vannesa Selbst and Eugene Katchalov, who together boast a wealth of experience at the virtual felt and a plethora of WCOOP cashes and wins.

Daily $5+0.50 tournaments will run from July 20 - August 03 at the following times:

Eugene: 13:00 ET

ElkY: 14:00 ET

Vanessa: 17:00 ET

Andre: 18:00 ET

Finish in the top two of any tournament and you'll be invited to submit a one-minute video explaining why you think you should be a protégé. The Pros will then whittle their respective entrants down to eight with the final four being selected via public vote on social media.

Don't miss out - this is your chance to learn from the pros and start climbing towards the top.
