The celebration of different milestone hands and other things never seem to stop on PokerStars. But it's all good since PokerStars keeps on spoiling its customers with amazing cash prizes everytime they celebrate something.
On March 11, 14:30 ET, it's time again as PokerStars will be celebrating the 6th Anniversary of the weekly Sunday Million tourney by hosting a Sunday Million tournament with an amazing $6 million guarantee. The winner of this tournament is guaranteed to walk away with at least $1 million!
There have been many Sunday Million tournaments throughout the years. In fact, a total of 278 Sunday Millions have been played with 2,116,513 entries and $444,149,600 in prize money. Many of today's biggest stars have taken part in many of these tournaments before and after they turned pro. Here is what some Team PokerStars Pros had to say about Sunday Million...
Bertrand ‘ElkY' Grospellier
"My favourite memory of the big Sunday tournament on PokerStars is the time I finished 12th. This was my first really deep run in a tournament of this size, and I was so excited. There is a huge Sunday Million on March 11, with $1M guaranteed for first. It may not feel the same for me as the first time I went deep, but I'll be trying just as hard. See you there."
"When I think of the Sunday Million, I think back to being a 19-21 year old kid, grinding mid-stakes, looking for that big tournament score. I would get excited every week to play the Sunday Million, hoping that would be the day that I would have my first six-figure score."
"This is one of the few tournaments where you can really score big. I have fun memories of playing the Sunday Million with my buddies, with football games on TV in the background. A friend won a big Sunday tournament in the old days, and first prize was $8,000. A long way from where we are now!"
"When playing the Sunday Million, it's important to be patient. It attracts huge numbers, and in order to navigate your way through, you have to learn to play the waiting game if the cards don't cooperate."
