Sunday Million With $9 Million Prize Pool!

Tags: anniversary, Sunday Million.
Posted on Tuesday, February 17, 2015 by "T".

On Monday, PokerStars announced that there will be a special edition of the Sunday Million next month to celebrate the weekly Sunday tournament's 9th anniversary. The special edition of the Sunday Million, which will be played on March 8 at 14:30 ET, will have the usual $215 buy-in but have a massive $9,000,000 prize pool!

As always, there are cheap satellites running around the clock for as little as $1 or 50 Frequent Player Points (FPP). In addition, there will be a few special satellites with guaranteed seats, including $1 buy-in Feeder Satellites to a $12 Deadline Satellite on March 8 (1,000 seats guaranteed).

Now the question is, will the 9th Anniversary Sunday Million break the record that was set in 2011 when 59,128 entries created a prize pool of $11,825,600? (the 5th anniversary Sunday Million was won by Luke ‘Bdbeatslayer' Vrabel, who received over $670k and a Lamborghini Gallardo.)

This event is going to be huge and it will be very interesting to see exactly how many players do enter. I hope that somebody off this site can go real deep and best of luck to all those playing
 StS52/17/2015 11:53:22 AM GMT
Yes mate there will be a very large field I guess and maybe I will be a part of it, because I still have a ticket with which I can register for this sunday million. But I think that a lot of good players will attend this tourney so winning something might be hard.
 StheP2/17/2015 12:39:42 PM GMT
there will be around 40k players playing that sunday million... There were few before, when prize pool was simular, sometimes 5M$, and it is a nice chance to become millionaire Big Smile Good luck to all mobsters that will play this, and I hope someone will make some good money from this great promotion... I will not play because I dont have 215$ on my bankroll xD but there is satelite for 1$ so maybe Ill try that, but I dont think I will, because chance is slim on that to win ticket....
 Skpmorita2/17/2015 1:33:43 PM GMT
9 million now that is lot of money
everybody dream is to reach final table in a tournament like this
but it will require skills and lot of luck
i have seen real average players make it in those
but again the luck , being able to win flips , catching good cards and not running against cooler hands
still 19 days , maybe i will be able to get that buy-in but most likely i will be watching as usual
 luisexy692/17/2015 1:38:20 PM GMT
Its a large amount of money, and i think that this tournament will be break the record of the past, and will make some players very rich, and make anothers with a good bankroll, will be a party on is on.
Like sthep said maybe participate on some satelites to win the ticket, but not to participate.
Best of luck to the mobsters that will be part of this.
 StheP2/17/2015 1:40:50 PM GMT
I doubt it it would be largest prize pool... there were few sunday millions with prize pool over 10m$... I think biggest one was 16M or 15M$ I am not sure... I think this will get close, but I think it will not grow bigger than 15M$
 uno1Bomber2/17/2015 2:32:43 PM GMT
These all-in shootouts are such enticing.. $1 buy-in, prize is $215 ticket, chances 1/256 (or 0,4%)

I should try Big Smile
 klash232/17/2015 5:39:50 PM GMT
This sounds like a great tournament to be involved in though with an entry field of 40k players you would hate to finish on the bubble and it must go on for hours.It would be nice to win a poker tournament and get a Lamborghini as an added prize!

My mistake it will be at least 50k players.... usualy when there is 5M guaranted there are 55-60k players... so I think this will be same....
 damosk2/17/2015 6:56:25 PM GMT
A great promotion with a huge prize and loads and loads of chances to satellite into the main event for relatively small prices. It would be nice to see if any mobsters enter the $9 million tourney and how much they spent getting into it and how much they win from it,
 pinotte2/17/2015 8:36:44 PM GMT
Very good promotion from PokerStars, but not to easy to get to it if you dont want to play the full price of the entry to this fabulous tournaments.

However with the number of players that will enter it, if we look at previous big one it will be at least in the 40 000.

With this kind of number of players just making it to ITM will be a very hard task.

And this kind of tournament is out of my skill so wont try anything to get in. Smile Smile Smile
 arsenej12/17/2015 8:46:17 PM GMT
Played one of the 4x shootout 1$ 256mans. Came in like 26th place. Pretty basic poker allin any goodhand. Hyper, only start with 10 big binds so goes pretty fast. Im sure it wouldnt be to hard to boink one. Think u have to win 4times to make it to final table so definitely doable. For a 200$+ ticket surly if you wanted to put the money up for it u can win it once easily in less the 200 tries.

That being said i might put 30$ aside and give it 30 goes. Might be a nice little challenge for tomorrow

Have no intention of playing this big of field so really depends if u can trade ticket for t $

------------
correction... there would br 10k places paid for 60k players... exactly 10017 places paid.... so that is very great, and I think its easy to make it Thumbs Up

------------

Actually they're not as good as you can think.

Look at this:

buy in for satellite = $0.98 + $0.02
Number of entrants: 256
Prize is $215 ($200+$15)
Odds: 1/256 (or 0,39%)

0,98*256=$250,88 for $215 ticket
(and you already payed the rake $0,02 or $5,12 for 256 tries so actually you pay $255,12 for $215 entry)

And as jeffaboy mentioned, there're 3 $12 prizes, so 255,12-(3*12)=$219,12 for $215 ticket


As you can see, it's a cheaper to pay $215 for entry than trying to win it through satellites.

Oh, I didn't know that.
 arsenej12/17/2015 9:27:03 PM GMT
Looking at the numbers it definitely doesnt sound good. I play almost strictly 180man hypers and 6max hypers, think knowing the shoving/calling ranges u can have a small edge. I find most ppl playing hypers panic if there short stacked and push with any two cards, when in reality u dont need to rush the game will play out. Ive only played one of these so dont know the type of players but i think its safe to say not all them are ubber familiar with the format and are just trying to get lucky. Ill give it a go tomorrow and see if i can atleast break even with 30tries. Its a small sample for sure, but will be fun ttrying. Ill post results and start in the am.

------------
Actually scratch that ill start in a few hours with a few tonight and see where this takes me Smile
 uno1Bomber2/17/2015 9:29:28 PM GMT
Good luck! Blink Thumbs Up
 teddybears732/17/2015 9:29:46 PM GMT
That's a very nice prizepool there,unfortunately i will not be playing in that as the buy-in is way too much,i might try a few sattys though. Smile

gl to all who try.

Thanks ill obviously need it lol but itll be fun to see if i can atleast break even
 jeffaboy2/17/2015 9:49:43 PM GMT
Goodluck m8 Smile know you can do it! a friend of mine also got one and swapped it for T$ , wasnt too hard he got it down on the 1st try
 bowie19842/17/2015 10:13:13 PM GMT
I like these satellites (I like all satellites for that matter, but this cheap ones good too IMO). They are always come down to basic ABC poker, nothing fancy, nothing risky, nothing to be worth angry about. If you get it, that is good - if you don't you just had a good afternoon playing thirty toureys. BOL arsenej1!

Definitely abc poker. 4max hyper so everyone is pushing everything. Half way through now closest was 6th place. The rest were between ok and wtf. Gonna try 15 more and call it quits. Dont wanna blow the bank on a gamble by any means.
 41ig302/18/2015 2:46:56 AM GMT
I think the prizepool will go over 12 million this year
And i know i will win it this year
Unless i have to participate in it
If so...i guess i wont

I would also advice you to play satellites to get the tickes. Buying in is way too expensive. I got my ticket through a school pass event promotion. In the first tournament you needed to get in the top 200 to qualify for the second in which 5 were getting ticket.
 MIGO142/18/2015 12:46:52 PM GMT
For sure a very nice tournament.
Will try to sat in through $1 qualifier to the $11 deadline sat.
Played one yesterday evening and already won a ticket/entry in the $11 deadline sat, so a good start...

 StS52/20/2015 4:24:16 PM GMT
Then I am wishing you good luck in the 11 deadline satellite. If I remember correctly I have also seen a freeroll in which one could win some tickets for this weeks sunday million. I wanted to play it, but unfortunately it was restricted only to players from CIS and Baltics.
 StheP2/20/2015 6:16:23 PM GMT
you have evry week freeroll for sunday million ticket, but if you can finish first from 20k+ players xD
 bowie19842/20/2015 10:26:29 PM GMT
Yeah but that freeroll is a pain in the a$$ literally. It has a 10k or 20k field for a prizepool consists of only one Sunday Million ticks and a couple Step 1 tickets. That is a good payout if you have to make your way through a couple hundred guys, but sitting there between 6-8 hours or whatnot just to have chance getting into FT to grab a ticket is a bad hourly wage IMO.
 Thorax2/22/2015 4:02:02 PM GMT
I'll give everything to win the tournament Smile ... I'll risk a dollar Smile

I know what tournament you mean. the weekly one which runs every wednesday and was once called something with "show". You are right this one is ridiculous. Places 2-9 earn a step 2 ticket and only first place is getting the sunday million entry.
 bowie19842/22/2015 10:33:49 PM GMT
Yeah, but if you bored and have a ton of patience you could try to win one of those fre4es - at least that won't cost you anything in the long run and you could even try winning it 52 times a year. As I mentioned above it's not a good payout 4 your troubles, but when you have the time then it won't matter, it will be just 4 fun.
 damosk2/23/2015 9:27:28 PM GMT
Haven't picked it up on this thread but have you noticed that the date of the $9 million game has changed to 15 March? Does anyone know the reason why? It seems a strange move. I can't imagine why or how this would happen. Any ideas?
 bowie19842/23/2015 10:37:21 PM GMT
Probably they are just try to have more satellites to breakeven the initial tourrey with this pumped up prizepool I guess. I am just shooting in the dark with this, don't know the real reason, but seeing Amaya's last couple moves wouldn't surprise me if this was the real case.
 StS52/25/2015 5:39:23 PM GMT
Yesterday I was playing the intelli poker qualifier freeroll for the sunday million and indeed I qualified for the final tournament. It was not difficult at all, because 200 players got the ticket with only around 1.000 people attending.

what kind of freeroll was that, and did you got ticket for regular sunday million or the 9 mil?
 bowie19842/26/2015 12:24:18 AM GMT
Final tournament of what? You did not say you qualified for the one in march or you just qualified for a satellite to make you play for the one in march. I am not saying hard to get into anniversary touries but you wasn't all clear which one you will play in the future...
$200 worth of ticks are not easily come by every day.

It is called "IntelliPoker - Sunday Million $9M GTD - SuperFreebuy Satellite (200 Tickets)" and it is running twice a day at 19 and 1 o clock central european time. You can play it with a normal School Pass ticket.

That is what I was talking about. The first satellite (school pass superbfreebuy or whatnot every day 4 two hundred ticks) is just a satellite for the main satellite. The main satellite only giving away 7 tickets for that particular Sunday (Million). The best though is still the chocolate sundae (a million of them if I could wish for) - pardon my pun.
 superthight2/28/2015 8:38:50 AM GMT
many players will be waiting and prepare for this tournament a very huge prize so far .i only need to cheer up to those br member that can afford to buy in,still got ticket to 9m guarantee and expecting to reach top 7 if possible ... Worship Worship Worship Worship Worship Worship
 StheP2/28/2015 11:43:52 AM GMT
Interesting thing is that this sunday million with 9 mil.$ will be on my birthday xD But I will not play it Sad

BREAKING NEWS:

this is just in- "Sunday Million" with $9 million prize pool and with a few more players than the regular 360 $0.10 sng will offcially be played without the legendary pochui amongst the field. this leaves the door wide open for everyone else.

pochui didn't comment on his decision, so this has to go down as one of the biggest mysteries of online poker.

Yes mate you got it. That is why I wrote that I qualified for the final reaching the top 200 in this, which by the way will be played today at 19:00 CET. And there you can finally win 7 tickets for the sunday million.

Okay, now there's two of us who won't play this one. Let's recoup at the 10th anniversary.

Yesterday I was playing the intelli poker sunday million qualifier final. I was quite lucky to see, that there were only around 1.000 players batteling it out for the seven qualifying ticket. Unfortunately I did not get very far.
