This summer, PokerStars is giving away more than $500,000 in cash and World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) tickets in Summer Daily Challenge All-in Shootouts. To be in with a chance of winning, check out your personal

in the PokerStars client, where a new Challenge will become available at 00:00 ET each day, from August 12th to September 4th.

Completing a Summer Challenge couldn’t be simpler. Once you’ve opened your Summer Challenge window, just hit ‘Start’ for your available Daily Challenge to have your progress measured. As soon as you have completed your Daily Challenge you’ll win an All-in Shootout ticket, meaning you can then register for a corresponding ‘Summer All-in Shootout’, played daily at 14:05 ET.

Each Shootout comes with an added prize pool, ranging from $10,000 up to $30,000, including at least $1,000 in cash for the winner! As a bonus prize the winner will also walk away with a $215 tournament ticket, which they can use to enter any $215 WCOOP 2014 event. The more challenges you complete, the more All-in Shootouts you can enter, and the more prizes you can win!

Don’t forget: In All-in Shootouts, you don’t even need to be present to be in with a chance of winning, as all players who have registered in advance will be all-in every hand until there’s a winner! Check out the Summer Daily Challenge schedule page to see the full list of upcoming challenges.


Have you got what it takes to complete 10 Daily Challenges? Prove yourself by hitting ‘Start’ on the ‘$150K Summer Bonus Challenge’ in your Summer Challenge window, and you could earn a ticket to the special $150,000 Bonus All-in Shootout on September 6 at 14:05 ET. There’s $100,000 in cash prizes to be won, with $10,000 for the winner, and $50,000 in WCOOP 2014 tickets.

The winner of the Bonus All-in Shootout will be rewarded with a $5,200 ticket to the $10,000,000 guaranteed WCOOP Main Event, while the top 256 players will win a $215 ticket for use in any $215 WCOOP 2014 event.

Don’t miss your chance to play poker’s most prestigious online tournament championship for free!

Please Note: Don’t forget to hit the ‘Start’ button on your Bonus Challenge before starting any of your Daily Challenges, as any Challenge you complete prior to this won’t count towards the progress of your Bonus Challenge. The WCOOP ticket prizes will be credited to winning players’ accounts within 48 hours of completion of the All-in Shootout.


You must visit your Summer Daily Challenge window in the PokerStars client to take part in any Daily Challenge.

All-in Shootout tickets will usually be credited to your account within two hours of completing a Challenge, but may take a few hours, so please be patient. You will receive your ticket well in advance of the corresponding All-in Shootout’s start time. Tickets can only be used to register for the corresponding All-in Shootout, and any unused tickets will be forfeited. There is no late registration available for the All-in Shootouts. All WCOOP ticket prizes will be credited within 48 hours. Click here for general PokerStars promotion rules.
