PokerStars Launches Carnival of Tournaments


Online poker giant PokerStars has racked up some impressive numbers over the last couple years and this month it will reach another incredible milestone.

The site is set to deal tournament number 900,000,000, in April, which is easily the most for any online poker site ever.

PokerStars is celebrating the achievement with a cavalcade of prizes and a special $1 million-GTD tournament #900,000,000.

For the entire week April 21-27 PokerStars is increasing a large amount of normal guarantees, up to triple the normal prize money in some cases. There will also be $100,000 in added prizes to be won.

PokerStars will kick off the Carnival of Tournaments with Golden Sit & Goes, which begin April 14.

Golden Sit & Goes will be picked at random (your table will turn gold if you are lucky enough to be selected) with huge prizes for players.

There are three different tiers of Golden Sit & Goes including Big, Bigger and Biggest.

BIG: You win your Sit & Go buy-in back, and will therefore be 'freerolling' in the tourney. The total prize pool will also be doubled.

BIGGER: You win 2x your Sit & Go buy-in, and the total prize pool will be tripled.

BIGGEST: You win 5x your Sit & Go buy-in, and the total prize pool will be multiplied by six.
