Get Ready for the Sunday Million Anniversary Tournament at PokerStars
It never hurts to plan ahead - in life as well as poker (and some would say poker is life...). Any remotely experienced fan of real money online poker is happily aware of being spoilt for choice. Finding online poker tournaments is never a problem per se, but some are bigger and better than others, and it’s worth making sure we don’t miss them. Furthermore, the more time we have in advance, the more chances we have to qualify at bargain prices for the higher buy-in events.
With this in mind, make a note in your diaries for a milestone, namely the PokerStars Sunday Million Anniversary tournament, held on 26 March to celebrate the 17th anniversary of this iconic fixture that over the years has paid out millions in prize money and changed the lives of countless players.
This particular tournament will be no exception, with a nosebleed $7.5 Million Guaranteed prize pool! And whoever emerges at the top of the pile after the dust has settled will walk away with a cool $1 Million first prize to accompany the accolade of being the PokerStars Sunday Million Anniversary champion. Battling your way through to the business end of the tournament is also going to lead to mouth-watering cashes, of course...
These numbers - which are not untypical of the prize pools being fought for at PokerStars every Sunday - are big enough to whet the appetite of any poker fan, from recreational players to battle-hardened grinders, and there are numerous ways to find yourself sitting down on 26 March ready for action. While you can simply buy in directly for $215, there’s no shortage of bankroll-friendly qualifiers being held in the run-up to the big event, including Freerolls, Spin & Go options and extra value added via satellites.
This year’s winner will be following in the footsteps of Blackbeaty of Germany, who took down top honours and $931,885 in last year’s anniversary edition after making a deal with runner up “JanRas1983” of Denmark. Be there, or be square...
