Your chance for professional sponsorship is just one week away! On Saturday, March 27, PokerStars will run its Dream Job Australia Grand Final, where the top ten finishers get a shot at a $100,000 live poker contract.
The winner will be chosen to represent PokerStars on the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour. In exchange for wearing PokerStars gear, he or she will earn a $5,000 per month salary and $40,000 for tournament entry fees. You can see why they call it a dream job: a one hundred thousand dollar contract that takes you to the best events in Australia and New Zealand.
Of course, winning this dream job will take some skills. Ten winners are chosen from Saturday’s tournament, which begins early at 4:30 ET. Those winners get to meet Team PokerStars Australia at Sydney, where they will take a Poker knowledge test to make sure they qualify.
From there, the contract winner is chosen by popular vote. The ten finalists have six weeks to campaign for support from the online poker community through blogs, twitter, or forums. Whoever gets the most support, gets the contract.
Think you have what it takes? You can register for the tournament directly, get in through any of the site’s daily freeroll qualifiers through Friday, or play in the weekly final on Saturday. Like the Grand Final, all these events start at 4:30 ET — event listings and more information are available on the PokerStars website.
Good luck with this dream job opportunity.
