Women's Sunday debuts with pro bounties and $5k guarantee

women_thumb.jpgFor poker players around the world, Sunday is the most exciting day of the week. After a quiet morning with family and friends (or maybe sleeping until noon) they are ready for some excitement before heading back to the trenches on Monday. By Sunday afternoon, thousands of players grab their laptops or wander back to their poker caves to settle in for an afternoon of tournaments that can offer life-changing money in the biggest tournaments of the week. With the Sunday Million, the Sunday Storm, and many others, PokerStars has been famous for offering a line-up of tournaments that offer thrills and chills in any price range. But that wasn't enough. They wanted to offer something just for women, something they could call their own, and so they did.

The Women's Sunday is that tournament, and for a $55 buy-in, women around the world can play together in a tournament that offers a $5000 prize pool and enough crazy suck-outs and bad beats to keep anyone happy. But that's not all. They can plan on playing with PokerStars Team Pros like Vanessa Rousso, Liv Boeree, and Vanessa Selbst who will be coming along for the ride every week. The pros will have a $50 bounty on their heads to make the deal even sweeter. And finally, for the first two months (through April) they can win a seat to a PokerStars Women Live event such as the upcoming Grand Final in Madrid by playing the tournament. All women who play the Women's Sunday throughout March and April will get a ticket to a freeroll on May 7 that will award a PokerStars Women Live event package worth $3,500.

Join us on Sundays for the most exciting day of the week in poker at the Women's Sunday on PokerStars.
