Time to celebrate as the Sunday Storm turns four

Here's a question for you. Which is PokerStars's most popular weekend tournament? Go on, take a guess. Got it? Of course you have. It's the Sunday Storm, and this month it celebrates its fourth anniversary.

I know what you're thinking, and it's not just "yeah, of course I knew it was the Sunday Storm". Possibly something along the lines of, "fourth anniversary you say? That sounds like reason to celebrate!"

Well you'd be right.

The Sunday Storm costs $11 to play and boasts a guaranteed prize pool of $300,000. But to mark the fourth anniversary PokerStars is hosting a special anniversary edition. The entry fee remains the same but the guarantee goes up a little bit, with $1 million up for grabs. That means a first prize of at least $100,000.


It all takes place on Sunday April 19, 2015 and what's more you can qualify online for as little as 11 cents in one of the satellites now running on PokerStars. These are the type of numbers that explain why it's the most popular event of the week.

The Sunday Storm is easy to play. You can register now on PokerStars, or in the days leading up to the event. And if you're a little late don't panic. Late registration is open for the first 120 minutes of play. If you're looking for it in the lobby type "Storm" into the Tournament filter and you'll be there in no time.

So you have the details. 13:30 ET on Sunday April 19, 2015. We'll see you, and well everybody else, there.
