Win your share of $250,000 this coming "VIP Super Saturday"
What are you doing this Saturday? You have plans? Well, cancel them. Because this Saturday isn't just any Saturday on PokerStars, it's VIP Super Saturday, with a combined prize pool of some $250,000 and a selection of VIP tournaments good enough to cancel all but your grandmother's birthday party*.
All right, so we're not advocating anything too extreme (although more than a few poker players learned the game on their grandmother's knee pushing pennies around the kitchen table), but we think we have a line-up of events that will render shoes redundant, and the outdoors as uninviting as outer space.
It kicks off on Saturday at 9:00 ET with a full day of events to suit every VIP status.
09:00 ET Bronzestar VIP Tournament: 7 StarsCoin buy-in, $5,000 Prize pool
11:00 ET ChromeStar Freeroll: $20,000 Prize pool
12:30 ET SilverStar Freeroll: $30,000 Prize pool
14:00 ET GoldStar Freeroll: $100,000 Prize pool
15:00 ET VIP Bash Sunday Million 10th Anniversary Special: 1,000 StarsCoin buy-in, 50 Seats added.
17:15 ET VIP Club: $100k Added. 50 StarsCoin buy-in (part of the 100 Million Promotion)
(Note: This currently has 47,000 entries, so the prize pool will be at least $123,500.)
That's not all. In between all of that, there's a ticket-only freeroll (Hyper-Turbo) at 13:47 ET with some $47k added - made up of 200 Sunday Million 10th Anniversary tickets, and a prize pool of $4,000.

To enter all you need to do is deposit $20 or more using the code 'MILLIONFREE3' and then find Tournament ID 1471575778 in the PokerStars lobby. And by the way, these run every Saturday up to and including March 19, 2016. Last week they had more than 16,000 runners. Sounds like a fun crowd.
So let's just recalculate. That means we're giving away more like $300,000. Even more reason to get involved. That goes for your grandmother too.
