In case you missed it, PokerStars launched a new tournament format called "Phased" about a week ago. Phased Tournaments have been known as Flighted Tournaments in the past and you might recognise the concept from live events.
Basically, you can play a Phase 1 ($11 buy-in and satellites from $2.20 or 5 FPPs) on one day and, if you make it through 11 levels of gameplay or about 1,5 hour of play, you move on to Phase 2 with the stack accumulated in Phase 1.
Phase 1 Tournaments run three times daily (Monday-Saturday, 10:25 ET, 13:25 ET & 19:25 ET) and Phase 2 (final day) is played on Sundays at 12:25 ET. If you make it to Phase 2 but aren't satisfied with the size of your stack, then you can just play another Phase 1 and try to improve your chip position!
PokerStars guarantees at least a $5,000 prize pool for Phase 2 tourneys. However, the prize pool for Sunday's Phase 2 is already way above $10k, so there's should be some serious cash up for grabs on the final table this Sunday (and hopefully future Sundays as well). Good luck everyone!
