PokerStars just can't help themselves. The poker room and promo guys and gals are drunk on 100 Billion Hand Celebrations.* All this week they're pumping money into Golden Sit & Go's, a bonus $1,000,000, we've been told, which could end up being much more. Get your multi-tabling head on! More than 3,200 players have been rewarded already with in excess of $80,000 in bonus Golden payments.
*They are not literally drunk, they just get carried away easily.
Once a sit-and-go fills up it's revealed if you're lucky enough to have pulled a Golden Sit & Go and, if so, what level it is. All are good, of course, but they do get progressively better.
The three levels of Golden Sit & Go's
1. Double prize pool and two buy-ins per player
2. Quadruple prize pool and four buy-ins per player
3. Ten times prize pool and ten buy-ins per player
So if you sign up to play a $30 nine-handed Hyper-Turbo and are lucky enough to pull the most golden level then you'll be credited with $300 and find yourself playing for a $2,589.30 prize pool where first-place would pay out $1,294.80! It should be a whole lot of fun and might be a real test of your ICM skills!
Check the official Golden Sit & Go's page here to find out more. The promotion runs 17-23 June and all standard real money Sit & Go's are eligible, including Heads-Up, 6-Max, multi-table and Hyper-Turbos. Satellite and Steps are ineligible for this promotion.
