$8 Million Guaranteed!

By: royalraise85 @ 09:20 (EST) / 594 / Comment ( 4 )

PokerStars players will get the chance to compete for at least $8 million in guaranteed prize money on March 2, as the world’s largest online poker site today announced details of the Sunday Million 8th Anniversary tournament.

The 8th Anniversary Sunday Million will be a $215 buy-in, but the total prize guarantee will be eight times larger than the normal weekly Sunday Million. There will also be a minimum of $650,000 guaranteed for first place. Satellites to the event start from just $1, giving players from all levels the chance to win life-changing money.

Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree said: “Each week the Sunday Million is the tournament that everyone wants to win, with players scheduling their weekends around it. 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.”

- $8 million guaranteed
- $650,000 guaranteed for first place

There are a wide range of satellites available to qualify for the Sunday Million 8th Anniversary starting from the hourly $1 feeder tourneys that get under way on Sunday, February 23, and then go every half-hour from Friday, February 28. There are also two special Deadline Satellites on the day of the 8th Anniversary, which guarantee a total of 1,333 seats:

- March 2, 13.30 ET – $33 Deadline Satellite – 333 Sunday Million seats GTD
- March 2, 13.30 ET – $11 Deadline Satellite – 1,000 Sunday Million seats GTD

There are also three VIP Bash Satellites scheduled for Saturday, March 1, with buy-ins of 50 Frequent Player Points (FPP) or 500 FPP, which start at 12.30 ET, 14.00 ET and 14.30 ET. In total another 200 Sunday Million 8th Anniversary seats are guaranteed in these qualifiers. See for more info.

Last year’s Sunday Million 7th Anniversary event was won by ‘benislovas’ from Lithuania for $848,589.33, after a three-way deal was struck that saw the top three players all pocket more than $800k each.

The biggest ever Sunday Million, and still the largest online tournament poker prize pool ever, was the one held in honour of PokerStars’ 10th Anniversary in December 2011. That tourney saw 62,116 players generate a record prize pool of $12,423,200, and was won by ‘First-Eagle’ from Canada for $1,146,574.65.

And don't forget that PokerSchoolOnline members have a chance to satellite into this event for FREE with our Birthday Bash promotion!
