$7,000,000 seventh anniversary for the Sunday Million
$7,000,000 guaranteed Sunday Million to celebrate seven years of the biggest and best tournament around on 3 March. Take your shot at the $1,000,000 held up top for the winner.
Can you believe that the Sunday Million has been running for seven years? Neither can we. That's a whole year of Sunday Millions played (or certainly close to) and PokerStars has decided to mark the occasion with a $7,000,000 guarantee on the tournament which will leave a minimum payout of $1,000,000 to the winner.
So let's get this right. On 3 March you can buy into the Sunday Million for $215 and the next day be a millionaire? That's right. in fact, you can do that for a lot less as all kinds of satellites, both cash and FPP buy-ins, are running in the lead up to the event. PokerStars is even running a 1,000 seat guaranteed deadline satellite which costs just $11 to buy into. There's got to be a whole lot of value in that.
$11 into $1,000,000, you say?
We wouldn't go as far as to say that you'd be mad not to take a shot at that... No, actually we will. You would be mad not to take a shot at the $11 satellite if you're not already committed to playing. If you think poker fairy tales don't come true then you obviously haven't heard of maratik who span just 40 FPPs into $1,000,907.26. Find out more about the satellites at by clicking through to the official Sunday Million 7th Anniversary page.
We'll write up a wrap of the final table and PokerStars.tv will release a full recap of the action with commentary.
