$1m up for grabs in PokerStars Sunday Storm

$1m up for grabs in PokerStars Sunday Storm

Tuesday, 22 March 2011

Turning $11 into a life changing sum of money sounds like the stuff of fantasy but that is what will happen to one lucky player at PokerStars this weekend.

The site's popular Sunday 1/4 Million event, a staple for tournament grinders and the perfect antidote to Heartbeat or the Antiques Roadshow, is getting a makeover. The new tournament will be known as the Sunday Storm and will feature an increase in the guaranteed prize pool from $250,000 up to $300,000.

The new event kicks off at 8.30pm UK time this Sunday with the good people at PokerStars boosting the prize pool in the debut tournament to a guaranteed $1m with the winner set to turn their $11 investment into at least $200,000.

Liv Boeree, who bagged almost $150,000 after winning the Sunday Warm Up earlier this year, is one top name who will definitely be playing. The EPT San Remo winner said, “I can’t wait to play the $1,000,000 guaranteed Sunday Storm – I’m a bit of an ROI nut so can’t think of a better chance to spin up $11 into a six-figure score!”

Players can bag a seat for nothing via hourly qualifiers or by signing up for a PokerStars account using the bonus code STORM.
