Storm the Leader Board in the PokerNews $10,000 PokerStars League 0001

It’s not too late to take to the felt in the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League!

The first heads-up event of the $10,000 PokerStars PokerNews League was played last week and it was ”kanabal18” who proved too good for the competition as they took down all the cash and the 21 league points.

While ”kanabal18” rocketed into the Top 10, it is still ”GioPn” who sits atop the leader board, having 5 more points than ”srtft” who now sits in 2nd place after a strong finish in last week’s league event.
