PokerStars is kicking off the new Sunday Storm tournament (formerly the Sunday 1/4 Million) in some serious style, to the tune of a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. Buy-ins are at an eye-popping low of $11. If you want to get even cheaper, PokerStars is offering free-entry qualifiers running every hour from 12:00 ET, March 15 until 12:00 ET, March 17. The top ten players from every qualifier event will win a free seat to the inaugural March 27 Sunday Storm. Players making a first real money deposit can use the bonus code “STORM” and be credited with a Sunday Storm ticket, along with the regular PokerStars 100% deposit promotion up to $600. Don’t miss out on this first-ever opportunity to compete for a $1 million prize pool for just $11.
The March 27 debut of the Sunday Storm marks the biggest guaranteed prize pool ever ($1 million), for an $11 tournament. Following this extravagant tournament, the weekly Sunday Storm’s buy-ins will remain at $11, and the regular guaranteed prize pool will still be quite formidable, at $300,000. The Sunday Storm begins at 15:30 ET every Sunday, and with low buy-ins and big pay-outs, it’s a tournament to definitely add to your schedule.
The Sunday Storm joins a PokerStars tradition of incredible Sunday tournaments, and joins such legends as the Sunday Million tournament. The Sunday Million is the biggest online poker tournament in the world, and has been a fixture in the poker community for years. Its guaranteed prize pool of $1.5 million attracts poker players from all over the globe, competing for a first place that awards at least $240,000. With payouts like this, the buy-in is a bargain at $215. Like many of PokerStars’ big tournaments, you can win a free seat by playing in the hundreds of satellites offered each week. The Sunday Million plays at 16:30 ET every Sunday.
If you happen to get knocked out of the Sunday million, there’s always the Sunday Second chance, with a guaranteed $200,000 prize pool. The tournament starts at 18:30 ET, for a $200+$15 buy-in, and just like the name suggests, offers players a second chance after the Sunday Million.
PokerStars, looking out for all its players, also offers a Sunday tournament timed for European players. Beginning at 14:00 CET, the Sunday Kickoff boasts $75,000 in guaranteed money, with $100+$9 buy-ins. It is the earliest major PokerStars Sunday tournament, and a great way to get a head start on your daily action.
Make sure to check out the Sunday Storm debut, to compete for $1 million at an unprecedented $11 buy-in. And, if you’re looking for other ways to beef up your bankroll, PokerStars has got you covered all Sunday long.
