PokerStars is always looking for ways to better treat their players, and this time they’ve done it by adding a new Spring Series.  The official name of the series is yet to be determined, but PokerStars and their players are nonetheless excited.  And why shouldn’t they be?  The total guaranteed prize pool is $30,000,000!

The series is comprised of 22 events, with each event having 3 seperate and simultaneous tournaments.  Each of the tournaments will have their own guarantee and will represent a different stakes level – low, medium, and high.  PokerStars wants to be sure that it is catering to all of its players.   Of course, the higher the stakes, the higher the guarantee!

The series kicks off on April 2nd with a NLH Rebuy event and concludes with the NLH 2-Day Main Event on April 12th.
