Poker Face is a new series of tournaments hosted by PokerStars that provides players an opportunity to practice for free before facing some of the UK’s top poker players in exclusive Bounty Tournaments that include an additional £2,000 added to their prizepools. Players qualifying for the Bounty Tournaments will find themselves playing against Team PokerStars Pros like Julian Thew and Vicky Coren. The Poker Face promotion is only open to PokerStars members from the UK and Ireland. All of the Poker Face events can be found in the PokerStars lobby by selecting ‘Tourney’ and ‘Regional’.
