POKERSTARS GUARANTEES $7 MILLION PRIZE POOL FOR SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY SUNDAY MILLION

on 2013-02-21, 09:12

Clear the diary for Sunday March 3rd 2013, because PokerStars is turning its weekly Sunday Million into the Sunday Seven Million. To celebrate the seventh anniversary of the tournament the site is slapping a $7 million guarantee on its signature $215 tournament. That means they need a massive 32,558 players just to break even, but few would bet against them surpassing that number.

Players can qualify for as little as 50 VPPs or $1 and PokerStars will be running a special $11 1,000 seat guaranteed qualifier at 7.25pm on the day of the tournament, whilst $1 feeders to that qualifier will run hourly from February 24 and every 30 minutes from March 1.

History also suggests that they’ll have no problem meeting the guarantee, last year’s sixth anniversary Sunday Million event was won by ‘slyfox151’ who topped a field of 33,732 players to win an first prize of $480,761.38 after an eight-way deal was done at the final table, whilst Luke ‘Bdbeatslayer’ Vrabel won $671,093.81 (as part of a nine-way chop) for the fifth anniversary in 2011.

However, the biggest ever Sunday Million was one held in honour of PokerStars’ 10th Anniversary in December 2011. That tourney saw 62,116 players enter, creating a prize pool of $12,423,200.
