PokerStars Tries Again: $10 Million Sunday Million on April 22
PokerStars celebrated its 12th anniversary of the Sunday Million in February by increasing the guarantee to a lofty $10 million.
Despite the tournament attracting a massive field of 43,975 entrants, it failed to meet its guarantee providing players that cashed with a huge $1.2 million in overlay. Brazil's "Hulk9950" was able to take the most advantage and claimed the top prize of $960,000 as part of a three-way deal.
PokerStars is going to roll the dice once again and challenges itself to surpass a $10 million guarantee next month. On April 22 at 2 p.m. ET, the online poker room will be hosting the $215 Sunday Million, Take 2, $10M Gtd where $1 million and a PSPC Platinum Pass valued at $30,000 is guaranteed to the winner.
Rasset: "If we miss a guarantee or two along the way, it’s worth the risk!"
“Thanks to player loyalty and passion, there is no other place to play for such big prizes at such low buy-ins,” said PokerStars Director of Poker Innovation and Operations Severin Rasset in a PokerStars press release.
“We know a $10 million guarantee is not easy to reach, but we relish the challenge. We believe that our players want to play tournaments like this, where life-changing money is won, and lifelong memories are made. If we miss a guarantee or two along the way, it’s worth the risk!”
As is always the case for its big tournaments, PokerStars is hosting a plethora of satellites for the Take 2 event where players can get in for a fraction of the cost.
In the lobby now, tournaments and sit-and-go's ranging in buy-ins from $2.20 to $22are running, each guaranteeing seats to the big event.
To help celebrate this event, PokerStars has also introduced limited-edition Spin & Go's where for a $5 buy-in players can potentially be playing for a $1 million prize pool.
