Poker Stars is celebrating the coming 6th anniversary of its revered Sunday Million tournament with a special installment of the event this Sunday, March 11, 2012 featuring a $6 million guaranteed prize pool and a $1 million guaranteed first prize.
The 6th Anniversary Sunday Million starts at 2:30 pm ET this Sunday. The buy-in is $215 if you just want to secure your seat directly. But you could opt to play in the satellite series running now at PokerStars and perhaps win yourself a $215 seat in the big anniversary tournament. There are literally hundreds of these satellites running now at PokerStars, including a special event at which 1,000 seats in the 6th Anniversary of the PokerStars Sunday Million will be awarded. That one takes place just before the action starts in the $6 million Sunday Million, while feeder satellites are running now for buy-ins as low as $1.
Many of the Team PokerStars pros can be expected to turn out for this event, including very likely, Liv Boeree, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Johnny Lodden, Jason Mercier and Lex Veldhuis.
Since the Sunday Million’s inception in 2006 when the first ever winner was the USA’s own aaaaaaaa (before the USA locked its players out of such excitement), Poker Stars has held 278 installments of the event, with a total playing field of 2,116,513 vying for a total prize pool given away of $444,149,600.
You can find the registration buttons for both the $6 million Sunday Million 6th Anniversary and the satellites into that event by going to Tourneys in your PokerStars software and then clicking Special.
