$3.5 Million Guaranteed in the Latest PokerStars 50/50 Series From June 11

PokerStars 50/50 Series

You do not always have to spend a lot to win big at the poker tables, especially when those poker tables belong to PokerStars. The 50/50 Series returns to PokerStars from June 11 through June 18, guaranteeing a cool $3.5 million across 50 events costing $50 each.

The 50/50 Series is immensely popular with recreational and seasoned professionals alike. The $50 buy-in is low enough for lower-stakes players to take a shot, but high enough for high-stakes grinders to drop down. Despite the affordable buy-ins, there are some impressive guaranteed prize pools waiting to be won.

June 11 is when the 50/50 Series kicks off, and boy does it explode into action. The Series Opener shuffles up and deals at 3:05 p.m. BST, and it will dish out not a cent less than $65,000!

Later in the day, the first of the daily No-Limit Hold'em PKO Mini Bounty Builder HR starts. The June 11 edition boasts of a staggering $300,000 guaranteed prize pool, which is the second-largest guarantee across all 50 events.

Sizeable guarantees are the order of the day across the week before the closing tournaments on June 18 perfectly round off the week-long series. Five of the seven scheduled events will have six-figure prize pools, including the eagerly anticipated 50/50 Series PKO Main Event.

PokerStars 50/50 Series PKO Main Event

The 50/50 Series PKO Main Event may only cost $50 to enter, yet PokerStars has slapped a $350,000 guarantee on its prize pool! To help reach that dizzy sum, Main Event players are permitted to purchase up to five re-entries during the first 3 hours and 15 minutes of the event.

Everyone in the Main Event sits down with a generous 50,000 starting stack and plays to a 12-minute clock throughout, with blinds starting at 175/350/40a. The curtain comes down on Day 1, 7 hours and 50 minutes into the action, with play resuming on Day 2 from 6:00 p.m. BST on June 19.
