The PokerStars Sunday Million is set to see its 8th anniversary today, on the 2nd of March, and in order to celebrate PokerStars will be putting on a special Sunday Million event with a prize pool guarantee of $8 million.
When you think that the usual weekly Sunday Million offers up a guarantee of $1 million and regular sees that amount busted, you can just imagine the interest that this event will bring for poker players all over the globe.
It’s difficult to believe that the Sunday Million has been running for eight years now, bringing life changing money to players on a weekly basis throughout that time. Ever since its conception it has been the most popular weekly online poker tournament and attracts a good combination of professional and recreational players.
The buy-in will be the usual $215 but this time the player that wins the event is set to take home a minimum of $615,000. PokerStars Team Pro Liv Boeree said to the PokerStarsBlog that “The Anniversary tournament is even more unmissable, though, because it’s not often you can win enough money playing online poker for a few hours to buy a house,”
The event will start today at 14.30pm ET and promises to be the one big event on PokerStars this year that you really do not want to miss out on.
