It’s the most famous and richest weekly tournament in the history of online poker.
Now PokerStars is taking its signature Sunday Million into the live arena.
The first-ever Sunday Million Live will take place Aug. 24-Sept. 4, 2017, at King’s Casino in Rozvadov in the Czech Republic.
The buy-in will be a familiar €220 (adjusted slightly for the Euro) but it will also offer an enticing €1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. Players also have the option of playing Day 1 online or live.
The eventual winner will walk away with a very solid return on their investment, which definitely sounds like the online version of the tournament.
All Sunday Majors Go Live
The Sunday Million isn't the only Sunday Major that’s getting the live tournament treatment.
The €220 buy-in Sunday Million Warm-Up and €500 buy-in Sunday Million 500 are also coming along for the ride as will a couple of small events created just for the occasion including a €400 PLO tournament.
“The Sunday Million Live is a great addition to PokerStars’ rich and varied live events calendar," said David Curtis, Live Events Manager, Europe at PokerStars, "blending the best of our online and live poker offerings to create a truly unique and exciting event,”
“We’re looking forward to once again partnering with King’s Casino and welcoming many of our live and online players to Rozvadov in August and anticipate a fantastic event for all.”
Online Day 1s start June 18, 2017 on PokerStars and are freezeout tournaments. Live Day 1s start August 24 and allow unlimited re-entry into the same starting day.

Qualify Online for as Little as €2.20
As you might expect there are already online qualifiers running for all the Sunday Million Live events and it’s possible to qualify for a little as €2.20.
All players with a COM/EU/UK Stars Account can qualify online via PokerStars or Full Tilt.
You’ll also get to try out the new Stars Rewards program. PokerStars officially launched its Stars Rewards program on a global scale this week and players from around the world can now open those chests that were previewed earlier this year.
The new rewards program focuses on recreational players and gives everyone a chance to open randomized chests once they’ve generated enough points. The chests are similar to those found in video games with randomized awards of up to $1,000 in cash.
