- Sunday Million celebrates its 16th anniversary in March
- Special edition will feature $10 million in guarantees
- The action takes place from March 20 to 22
PokerStars is hosting another massive Sunday Million anniversary event this March. The online poker giant is giving way an astonishing $10 million in guaranteed prize money in celebration of Sunday Million’s 16th year.
If you want to be part of this historic tournament, mark your calendar for March 20. The action starts at 5:05 pm GMT.
The upcoming tournament comes with a buy-in of $215 and features 20,000 in starting chips, with blinds starting at 50/100/12a, increasing every 20 minutes from Level 1-18. After that, blind levels last 15 minutes.
If you can’t afford the $215 buy-in, there are plenty of satellites running on PokerStars which you can enter for as low as $2.20. You can take a shot at freerolls as well for a chance to win your way into the tournament at absolutely zero costs.
The Sunday Million 16th anniversary event is a three day affair. Day 1 concludes after the completion of Level 18. Day 2 takes place on March 21 with the action concluding at the end of Level 50. The remaining players battle it out one last time on March 22 during which a winner will be crowned. The tournament allows up to five re-entries, with late registration staying open until the start of Day 2.
15th Anniversary Special A Huge Success
Last year, Sunday Million marked its 15th anniversary with a huge tournament guaranteeing $12.5 million. That figure was smashed after the tournament attracted nearly 70,000 entries, generating $13,975,200 in total prize pool. It was the second-biggest prize pool in the history of the tournament.
When the dust settled, Canadian poker pro Vanessa “Niffller” Kade emerged as the champion, defeating Polish player “Talibenes” heads-up to secure the title and $1,514,920 in top prize. The runner-up finisher took home $1,035,358 for his efforts.
Key winners of the Sunday Million anniversary editions include Luke “Bdbeatslayer” Vrabel who won the 5th anniversary edition which marked the last time that American players were allowed to take part in the special tournament.
“DrUPSWING” won the first seven-figure top prize when the tournament celebrated its eighth year, while Alex “AAAArthur” Brito shipped the biggest Sunday Million anniversary event back in 2020, defeating a 93,016-entry field and turning his $11 satellite to a whopping first-place prize of $1,192,802.
