PokerStars $7 million Guaranteed This Sunday for 7th Year Anniversary of Sunday Millions


On Sunday March 3rd, poker players from around the world will likely be sitting at home, maybe order a pizza and watch some sports on TV, but this is as they get set to play on the 7th anniversary event of the PokerStars Sunday Million tournament that is guaranteeing a massive $7 million prize pool in honour of the staple Sunday tournament’s seven year anniversary.

Unlike the usual $200,000 for first place, the winner this weekend will walk away a millionaire with a $1 million guaranteed payout for winning the tournament.

The tournament costs $215 and is giving players a 10,000 starting stack and playing 15-minute blinds that kick off at just 20/40 (for 250 big blinds).

It is very likely that the Guarantee will be shattered anyhow beyond the $7 million.

Here’s a look at some of the biggest Sunday Millions to date.
