Pokerstars official poker school..for Germans? WSOP qualifier freerolls daily
Have you ever noticed on Pokerstars under help the 2nd to last option and the 2 above it.. about Intellipoker. So I was googling around and found out that it is actually a pokerstars sponsored poker school.
So I was looking through the freerolls
on pokerstars and noticed there was a freeroll for a WSOP
seat. So I looked closer and saw it was a freeroll that top 18 got a seat into another tourney, then you must place in that tourney to get into the final, then top 3 in the final get a prize. I was intrigued because, despite the tourney lobby being in German, nowhere that I saw did it say Germans only. So I began googling around on this pokerstars school, intellipoker, and I found 2 German videos explaining how to sign up and register. These tourneys are running right noe every day at 10 AM Eastern time. They are called IntelliPoker WSOP Package Qualifier. So this is what I figured out you have to do to play the tournies.
1. Go to Poker - Online Poker Games
at PokerStars - Play Texas
2. Click on Deutsch on top of page and download pokerstars.
3. During install, choose the Dutch version of install.
4. After install, login with your current username. Pokerstars will ask if you want to change your language selection to Dutch. I aswered yes, but I'm not sure if this is required.
5. Now you will notice that the previously greyed out options on the menu under Help, the fourth from the bottom option Register for Intellipoker(Anmeldung bei Intellipoker..) will now be clickable.
6. Click it and choose a password for intellipoker login, type it twice. Hit the left button (Bestatigen)
7. A popup from pokerstars will pop up soon, choose the left option (Yes?)
8. Go to help again (on pokerstars, now Hilfe) and and go to the 3rd from the bottom option PokerSchule starten. This opens the intellipoker site.
9. Click the underlined hier on the top right of the webpage
10.Now on the login type your pokerstars username and the password u made in step 6
11.Now that you are logged in open in a new tab in the same browser:
Mit IntelliPoker-Freerolls zur WSOP 2008 - IntelliPoker - brought to you by PokerStars (http://www.intellipoker.com/articleshow.php?id=1831)
12. IMPORTANT Scroll down below the video to step one and push the button in the grey box. This is confirming that you will be 21 at the time of the WSOP main event. (this took me FOREVER to figure out)
13. Now in a few minutes you should have a ticket to the freeroll.
This took me a long time of using google to translate pages, but this is definately a worthwhile thing. Top 18 of each days freeroll gets a seat in either the semi-final on May 4th or June 8th (not sure if u choose)
Top 198 from those semi-finals get into the final on June 15th where top 3 get WSOP Main Event Packages.
Good luck all and please report on your experiences with this.
