Double Vision returns with a bang
This Sunday, 4 November, PokerStars is bringing back its Double Vision weekend laying on twice as many Sunday majors as usual. It's a revolutionary turn of events.
Someone else with revolution on their mind was Guy Fawkes, who was arrested guarding barrels of explosives lined up beneath British Parliament (more specifically the House of Lords) way back on the 5 November, 1605. Had Fawkes not been discovered it would have made for one huge fireworks show, the thwarting of which has been celebrated in the UK as an annual day of public thanksgiving every year since. Although it started off as a pseudo-religious party it's developed into a celebration of cheap sparklers and a test of fortitude as ill-prepared teens brace themselves for winter weather at overpriced public firework displays. Now PokerStars brings you something to really strike a light for. Get your King Rocket, Star Chamber box or Mighty Mortar kit at the ready. We're going to blow a double Sunday guarantee spectacular with gazillions (okay, millions) of dollars to be won.
