Poker Stars Dream Job Australia Final Fast Approaching

It has been weeks since Poker Stars started their Dream Job Australia promotion and now it looks as though the first stage of the tournament will be coming to an end soon. The final for Dream Job Australia is scheduled for tomorrow (March 27th) and will begin at 4:30 PM Eastern Time.

Players that have been able to perform well on the satellite tournaments that have been running for weeks are the same players that will be able to enjoy a relatively cheap entry into the Grand Final that will be run tomorrow. However, even if you haven’t played a single satellite there is still time for you to either win your way into the final or else buy your way into it with direct buy-in cash for the final event.

The good news is that if you do the direct buy-in, performances of other players at previous satellites don’t really mean that much. This is because the Poker Stars Dream Job Australia Grand Final will send the 10 players that are left at the end to the second stage of qualification regardless of how they got to the final in the first place.

All ten of these players will be sent to Sydney, Australia, at which point Team Poker Stars Pros will quiz them on their knowledge of poker and generally help them with getting recognized and eventually selected as the final person out of the ten that should be going for this selection.

The final player that ends up being selected out of these ten candidates will be the player that receives the $100,000 contract from Poker Stars. This contract will include $5000/month as a salary as well as $40,000 to be used by the player to buy into the Australia and New Zealand Poker Tour events of their choice. They will be representing Poker Stars by wearing their gear while playing and at the end of the tournament series it is quite possible that they may walk away with a lot more than that in cold hard cash. No matter how you slice it, this is definitely a Dream Job Australia opportunity.
