$1 million Storm blowing in on Sunday

Turn your nose to the breeze and breathe in. That's the smell of a storm coming.

On any other day, the air would be shot full of ozone, petrichor, and geosmin, enough that you could smell the coming tempest before the first drop of rain. Today, there is no mistaking the scent in the air.

It's money, friends. Lots and lots of money.

As we told you back on April 1 (it was no joke), PokerStars is set to celebrate the fourth anniversary of its most popular tournament, the Sunday Storm. The $11 buy-in event normally boasts a $300,000 guarantee. This Sunday the prize pool will be at least $1 million no matter how many people show up. The winner is going to get at least $100,000, no matter what.


Kickoff is 13:30 ET Sunday, and you'd do well to set your alarm for it. While the $11 buy-in is about as cheap as it gets for a $1 million guarantee, you can still find satellites running that can get you a seat for next to nothing.

Heck, you could just get in for free. Deposit $10 or more using bonus code 4STORM for a free ticket to the $1.10 Deadline Turbo Satellite. There are 1,000 seats guaranteed in that satellite alone.

Can't make it on time? Well, the Storm will have late reg open for two hours after the first flop, so you can show up fashionably late and still have your shot at anniversary money.
