Monday, 4. October 2010

PokerStars is giving their members the chance to boost their bankrolls while playing against two of the biggest names in online poker. PokerStars’ LuckyGump Series is a set of weekly tournaments where PokerStars members can compete against Alexey ‘LuckyGump’ Makarov and Denys ‘diatty’ Shcherbakov for big cash bounties as well as hundreds of dollars in added prize pools.

It is very simple.
