The PokerNews-exclusive 7 Weekend Wonders promotion continued this past weekend on Poker770 as the top 20 finishers walked away with a share of $1,500. Will it be you walking away with some free cash this week?
This week, "armando47" managed to improve on his runner-up finish from the first week by capturing the top prize of $225. He generated an impressive 1,527.27 770Points, which edged out “jnts’” 1,304.14 770Points. Interestingly, both the winner and runner up generated nearly three times as many points as the next closest competitor, “Ojamies,” who finished with 518.85 770Points.
Here’s a look at the top 20 finishers for Week #2 (Machu Picchu) of the 7 Weekend Wonders promotion:
The qualification period of Week #3 (Chichen Itza), between midnight on June 8 and 00:59 GMT on June 11, is right around the corner, so if you want to see your name of the winner’s list you best be prepared to earn some points.
All you need to do to qualify is earn 100 770Points during the qualification periods, all of which occur on the weekend, and you’ll have a shot at your share of a $1,500 prize pool. Earning 100 x 770Points is easy as you will earn 20 x 770Points per $1 generated in rake at the cash game tables and 22 x 770Points per $1 paid in tournament fees, meaning $5 worth of rake or tournament fees will be enough to qualify for each weekend's promotion.
If you are not eligible for this week's race then do not worry because there are still plenty of weeks to go on this excellent promotion as you can see in the table below:
