The much-awaited event of the PokerStars packed online poker calendar boasts massive fields and grand prizes for the taking.
PokerStars disclosed details of its upcoming Sunday Million Ninth Anniversary tourney, in accordance with the UK gambling laws and the tournament will continue with the normal $215 buy-in. In addition to that there will be a huge $9 million guarantee. The tournament is scheduled for Sunday, March 8, 2015 at 14.30 ET.
Team PokerStars Pro Online, Lex Veldhuis, said: “There aren’t too many one-off tournaments that are an absolute ‘must-play’, but the Sunday Million Anniversary event is for sure. Winning a $1 million and first prize from just $215, reduced if you satellite in is an amazing opportunity. I’ll be taking a shot as usual and hoping I can bink a huge score.”
$33 Deadline Satellite
Also happening on March 8, 2015 at 13.45 ET is the $33 Deadline Satellite, which will guarantee 333 seats. The $1 buy-in will allow entry into an $11 Deadline Satellite guaranteeing 1,000 seats in online UK Poker Rooms that will also take place at 13.20 ET on March 8.
Players can satellite in for a minimum of $1 for some Feeder Satellites which has been running every hour since last week, or players can take part in 50 Frequent Player Points (FPP). In 2011, during the 5th Sunday Million tourney, there were 59,128 entries and a prize pool of over $11 million with Luke ‘Bdbeatslayer’ Vrabel, snapping up over $670, 000 and a Lamborghini Gallardo.
