How to Qualify
All players in the USA and Canada can play in the free-to-enter Big Game Round 1 qualifiers running four times a day, from now-December 31, 2011. The top 300 players from each will go through to Round 2. Finish in the top 1,000 there and next stop will be the finals.
If you then finish in the top 200 in a Big Game Final Round qualifier, you’ll be invited to send in a casting video, explaining why you think you should be on The PokerStars.net Big Game as a Loose Cannon.
To find The Big Game Round 1 qualifiers, open the PokerStars lobby, click ‘Tourney’ & ‘Regional’, and then look for tournaments listed as ‘Big Game’.

Start the New Year with double your money at PokerStars
Make your first-ever real money deposit using the bonus code ‘STARS600’, and PokerStars will give you a 100% bonus up to $600.
You can make up to three qualifying deposits in 90 days (up to the maximum bonus value) - the perfect way to take full advantage of the 100% bonus. Once you’ve made your deposit(s), you earn the bonus by playing on PokerStars and collecting the number of VPPs equal to 17 times the bonus.
The bonus is released in increments of 10 ($10, £10, €10 etc), each released into your account as you clear the needed VPPs (e.g. 170 VPPs for every $10 increment).
You have six months after each qualifying deposit to earn all the VPPs needed to release your bonus.
