Sunday Million 9th Anniversary



ONCHAN, Isle of Man – February 16, 2015 – PokerStars today announced details of the Sunday Million 9th Anniversary tournament, which will take place on Sunday, March 15 at 14.30 ET. The tournament will retain its regular $215 buy-in but have a massive $9 million guarantee. Players can satellite in for as little as $1 or 50 Frequent Player Points (FPP).

The Sunday Million Anniversary tournament is one of the most eagerly awaited events of the online poker calendar, with huge fields and large prizes to be won. The richest to date is the 5th Anniversary edition in 2011, which saw 59,128 entries and a prize pool of $11,825,600. It was won by Luke ‘Bdbeatslayer’ Vrabel, who took home just over $670k (and a Lamborghini Gallardo).

Team PokerStars Pro Online, Lex Veldhuis, said: “There aren’t too many one-off tournaments that are an absolute ‘must-play’, but the Sunday Million Anniversary event is for sure. Winning a $1m+ first prize from just $215 – or even less if you satellite in – is an unreal opportunity. I’ll be taking a shot as usual and hoping I can bink a huge score.”


To make the Sunday Million Anniversary tournament as inclusive as possible, in addition to the regular satellites that are already running, PokerStars is hosting some Feeder Satellites for $1 (running every hour from February 16) that provide entry into an $11 Deadline Satellite that will take place at 13.20 ET on March 15. That tournament will guarantee 1,000 seats in the 9th Anniversary tournament, with a $33 Deadline Satellite also taking place the same day at 13.45 ET that guarantees 333 seats.
