While the Winter Series officially ends on Jan 10, the tournament series action does not stop on PokerStars Ontario. Immediately after the Winter Series closes, the Chinese New Year Series is kicking off on Jan 13, according to the lobby info.

There is nearly $900k guaranteed in the 75-game series that runs through Jan 23.
