One of PokerStars staple tournament offerings are The Daily Bigs: events with big prizes pools for comparatively tiny buy-ins. Between Monday, October 14 and Sunday, October 20, 2013, PokerStars will be increasing the buy-ins even more, by turning them into Big, Bigger, or Biggest tournaments.
The new promotional Big version of The Daily Bigs will run from Monday, October 14 to Friday, October 18, increasing guaranteed prize pools by 50%.
The Bigger version of The Daily Bigs will run on Saturday, October 19, increasing guaranteed prize pools by double.
The Biggest version of The Daily Bigs will run on Sunday, October 20, increasing guaranteed prize pools by triple. This culminates in Tourney Number 800 Million with a $1 million guaranteed prize pool and $100,000 in added prizes.
In addition, at all of these Big, Bigger, and Biggest events – including Tourney Number 800 Million – bubble prizes will be awarded, in the form of free tickets back into the same event, in essence giving all those players who finished on the bubble in a particular The Daily Bigs event a second chance to play in that event again at no cost to them. The number of bubble prizes awarded at each event varies, depending on the event and whether or not it is currently Big, Bigger, or Biggest.
The Daily Bigs run all day each day, from The Big $3.30 at 01:00 ET through to The Big $2.20 at 20:30 ET.
The increased Daily Bigs are being offered as part of PokerStars larger 800 Million Celebration, being held in honor of the site’s 800 millionth tournament held.
