« on: March 05, 2014, 03:52:00 AM »
Play poker’s biggest names for $1,000,000 on TV at PokerStars!  (see video preview at bottom of this post)

Think you have what it takes to travel the world and beat the biggest names in poker for $1,000,000 on TV? The Shark Cage is your shot at making it happen! It’s a new TV show where poker legends from around the world and Team PokerStars Pro will compete in televised heats for a place in the final. There are seats open for PokerStars players, and you can claim yours with qualifier tournaments running now. Are you ready to enter The Shark Cage? It’s time to find out.

How to make it to The Shark Cage

The TV show includes eight heats, all filmed at European Poker Tour (EPT) events. Each heat will see five top pros and one online qualifier play for a seat in the final, held at EPT London, where they will play for $1,000,000 - winner takes all.

Heats 3 and 4 take place as part of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final, in April 2014. This means there’s room for two qualifiers, with not just a seat in the heats on offer, but also a trip to Monaco, including return flights for two, double room at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, and $600 credited to your PokerStars account for expenses!

Online qualifier tournaments take place daily at 15:00 ET from March 3-14. In addition to an added prize pool of $5,000, the top 50 finishers in each qualifier will advance to the casting stage to audition for the TV show (see below).

How to make it to the PokerStars Shark Cage


The TV show includes eight heats, all filmed at European Poker Tour (EPT) events. Each heat will see five top pros and one online qualifier play for a seat in the final, held at EPT London, where they will play for $1,000,000 - winner takes all.

Heats 5, 6, 7 and 8 take place as part of EPT Barcelona, in August. This means there’s room for four qualifiers, with not just a seat in the heats on offer, but also a trip to Barcelona, including return flights for two, double room at the Pullman Skipper Hotel, and $600 credited to your PokerStars account for expenses!

How to secure your ticket for the qualifier tournaments


Deposit $20 (€14/£12) or more, before 23:59 ET on June 8, using bonus code ‘SHARKJUNE’ for 10 free tickets, which can be used to enter any of the Shark Cage qualifier tournaments with a $1,500 added prize pool.

Please Note: All Shark Cage qualifying tickets are non-transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash. Offer only valid once per player, which means that one player can claim a maximum of 10 tickets. Unused tickets and tickets claimed after any of the qualifying tournaments have been played will be forfeited.

Casting Stage

Make it to the casting stage and you’ll be invited to send them a video audition. They want to know all about you, so tell them your story, especially your life outside of poker, in two minutes. Grab their attention by making sure you inject plenty of personality, humor and enthusiasm!

PokerStars will review all video submissions and shortlist the best ones. If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by phone for further interviews. Unfortunately, they cannot respond to every entry, but they thank you for taking the time to make a video and enter the competition. After the phone interviews have been completed, they will select the four winners and they will then be publically announced on July 25.
