PokerStars to Run $7 Million GTD Sunday Million
PokerStars is bumping up the $1-million guaranteed Sunday Million to $7 million in recognition of the tournament’s seventh anniversary on March 3, 2013.
The online tournament will rival some of the biggest live tournaments in the world with a minimum of $1 million guaranteed for the first-place finisher alone.
"I'm going to stock up on food and drink so I'm ready to grind this one!" said Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis.
"It's so big that it's like playing an EPT online."
Since being introduced in 2006 the Sunday Million has become the richest weekly online tournament in the world with first-place prizes that regularly exceed $200,000.
The biggest Sunday Million ever took place during PokerStars’ 10th anniversary when the tournament attracted 62,116 players and created a prizepool of $12.4 million
Eventual winner Kyle "First-Eagle" Weir ended up taking down $1.1 million for first place.
As usual it will cost $215 to buy into the Sunday Million but PokerStars is running several satellites for the big event including a 1,000-seat tournament for $11. Players can also freeroll their way in on FPPs.
What’s more, players who sign up through PokerListings currently receive a 100% deposit match up to $600 and have access to a number of freerolls including a monthly one that awards two Sunday Million tickets and $570 in cash.
