PokerStars is celebrating the 6th anniversary of its popular Sunday Million tournament series on March 11, 2012. For that week, PokerStars will be increasing the guaranteed prize pool of the Sunday Million from $1 million to a massive $6 million with the champion expected to walk away with $1 million in their pocket.
The PokerStars Sunday Million is one of the most highly regarded online poker tournaments attracting thousands of players each week competing for a chance to make sizeable amounts of money. For many poker players, it has become as much a Sunday tradition as watching Sunday football.
To date, the Sunday Million tournaments have awarded more than $444 million in prize pools across 278 times that the Sunday Million has run and has attracted more than 2.1 million entries. The first Sunday Million was launched on March 5, 2006 and awarded $173,844 to the winner who beat out a field of 6,000 players.
The event will kick off at its regular time of 14:30 EST with a direct buy-in of $215. Players can still qualify for a seat by playing in smaller satellites leading to the Sunday Million or by buying in with Frequent Player Points. There will also be a special 1,000-seat guaranteed satellite running just before the big Sunday Million kicks off, with feeder satellites starting from only $1.
This is surely not one to be missed because the payoffs will be staggering and the extra value anticipated is great for the players.
