Sunday Million with $5 million guarantee headlines Christmas Festival

It's December, which among other things means we can talk about the PokerStars Christmas Festival without glancing at the calendar and wondering if we're not jumping the gun.

But even if we started the festival more than a week ago it's worth a reminder of what Christmas treats we're giving away, starting with $10 million in prizes, details of which you can find on the festival homepage.

Arguably the highlight of the festive season on PokerStars will be a special edition Sunday Million, with a $5 million prize pool on Sunday December 27, starting at 14.30 ET. You might want to clear your diary for that one.

What's more with such a high guarantee, first place money will be at least $500,000, and all from the usual buy-in of $215.

And hey, look! You don't even need to pay the full buy-in!

As always we'll be running satellites to this year-end bash where you can win your seat for as little as a dollar. And guess what? Those satellites start today.

As you'll find in the PokerStars tournament lobby you can win your way in at a much reduced rate. Doing so may well help you have a very happy Christmas, while nothing says happy New Year like a $500,000 winner's check.

Check out the Christmas Festival homepage for all the details on the special edition Sunday Million, and the other events planned for December. Meanwhile the tournament lobby will do the rest.

Good luck.
