$5m guaranteed in this week's PokerStars Sunday Million

$5m guaranteed in this week's PokerStars Sunday Million

Saturday, 5 March 2011

This Sunday marks the fifth anniversary of the PokerStars Sunday Million, a $215 tournament running every week on PokerStars that guarantees a prize pool of $1.5m and tends to make five or six people a week $100,000 or more richer to cheer up Monday mornings.

Five years of million-dollar prize pools adds up to more than $250,000,000 won in the Sunday Million since its inception and PokerStars are adding a notable sum to that total this Sunday with the prize pool boosted to a cool $5,000,000 and a guaranteed first-place prize of at least $1,000,000. Oh, and a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 which we guess you can then fill with the cash and just sleep in forever.

This means that 25,000 people must play the tournament to avoid PokerStars owing a Lamborghini dealership some money, so they have no intention of letting an overlay creep in. Or at least, they’re trying – on the Sunday, an hour before the tournament kicks off, a $11 tournament will guarantee 1,000 seats with satellites to that satellite running now.

In addition, all the usual satellites for the tournament are running for as little as $2.20 or 1FPP.

To be in with a shout of winning a life changing amount sign up for an account at PokerStars.
