      The finals are quite lucrative already, but after Neymar Jr. has shown his immense 'fighting spirit' at Copa América, I'm looking forward to extra tourneys or step SnG series with bounties on him as a consolation for his deed, taking the prize pool out of his sponsorship salary :f_biggrin:

      I don’t think this is possible, but you can always send a mail to support@pokerstars.com and than you get a answer of PokerStars support about it.

      Off course the change you win a package is still slim with so many competitors. Also it was a nit party in the first final I was playing. So you need to play with less than 10bb most of the time.

Given that the dates cannot be confirmed in advance, the package may be transferred to another PokerStars player provided you notify PokerStars of the name of the player you wish to transfer the prize to before 23:59 ET on July 31.

      Just in case: сan the package be transferred to a player from another Pokerstars liquidity pool, e.g. the Spanish one?

      If no one here has a ready answer, I'll ask Stars' support if I suddenly win a trip.
