Easter is almost upon us and PokerStars is getting into the spirit by giving Fintan “easywithaces” Hand his very own tournament series. The EasterWithAces series runs from April 4 though April 17, features ten value-packed events, a special freeroll, plus six community home games that give PokerStars players the chance to win a share of almost $190,000, including a coveted PSPC Platinum Pass.
Ten events with buy-ins from $5.50 to $55 adorn the EasterWithAces schedule. Each of those tournaments have guaranteed prize pools ranging from $2,500 up to a cool $75,000. That larger sum is reserved for the $33 buy-in EasterWithAces Main Event on April 16.
Satellites for the EasterWithAces Main Event are in the PokerStars lobby right now with an affordable $1.10 buy-in. There are also satellites for the other scheduled events from a mere $0.55, meaning everyone has the chance to enjoy this festival.

Hand Cashes In The First EasterWithAces Event
The first of ten EasterWithAces events took place on April 4. It drew in a bumper crowd of 1,586 entries, more than doubling the $7,500 guarantee the top 223 finishers shared $15,542.
Hand went deep in the event, eventually bowing out in 22nd place.
Each of the eight finalists won at least $221 for their efforts, with the top three finishers turning their $11 investment into a four figure haul. Brazil’s “Jucaltajai” finished third for $1,203, which left “ZzZzZzZzSsZ” of Canada and “hassabi” of Finland heads-up for the title. The heads-up duo struck a deal that saw the Canadian bank $1,856 and the Finn become the first EasterWithAces champion, a finishing worth $2,200.
