PokerStars to host $7m Sunday Million

Saturday, 16 February 2013

PokerStars certainly knows how to mark its major milestones and the world's biggest site has come up trumps again to celebrate the seventh anniversary of the Sunday Million.

The birthday edition of the Sunday Million on 3rd March 2013 will feature a massive guaranteed prize pool of $7 million with the winner adding $1m to their bankroll. Qualifiers for the $215 buy-in event start on 24 February with 1,000 available in a special $11 qualifier on the day of the anniversary edition itself. $1 feeder satellites into that deadline qualifier will run hourly from 24 February and every 30 minutes from 1 March.

“I remember playing in previous Sunday Million Anniversary tournaments well,” said PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis. “The gigantic prize pools make them so memorable and I'm sure this one will be no different with $1 million for the winner! I'm going to stock up on food and drink so I'm ready to grind this one! It's so big that it's like playing an EPT online.”

Last year’s sixth anniversary Sunday Million event was won by ‘slyfox151’ who topped a field of 33,732 players to win an adjusted first prize of $480,761.38 after an eight-way chop was done at the final table.

This year's anniversary special will be even bigger.
