PokerStars Women: Women's Sunday Birthday Celebration

PS Women logo.jpgTell a child a secret and watch them squirm with excitement, so anxious to spill the beans and tell everyone. That was the PokerStars Women crew during the planning of the Women's Sunday First Birthday celebration. But now, with the permission of our bosses, we can finally share the secrets and talk about the plans, and you're all invited to the virtual party!

We can tell you that the March 25 Women's Sunday will be a huge event. The guarantee will be raised to $20,000 to celebrate our big day, and all of the Team PokerStars Pros in the tournament will offer double bounties of $100 per elimination instead of the usual $50. On top of that, everyone who registers to play will be given a free PokerStars Women Live satellite ticket. All players will receive a €2.20 ticket, and all of the final table players will win a €215 ticket ... and a great chance of winning their way to Monaco! And all of this will be available to the female players who register for the regular $55 buy-in.

In addition to the usual satellites that will award seats into the big event for as little as $5.50 or 500 Frequent Player Points, there will be freerolls! All week long, there will be freerolls, with passwords given on either Facebook or Twitter as follows:

Monday, March 19 @ 14:30 ET - Facebook
Tuesday, March 20 @ 14:30 ET - Twitter
Wednesday, March 21 @ 13:30 ET - Facebook
Thursday, March 22 @ 13:30 ET - Twitter
Friday, March 23 @ 14:30 ET - Facebook

Everyone is welcome to join in, chat with Adrienne, and connect with some of the guests as well. (Celina Lin and Vanessa Selbst are tentatively scheduled as our featured guests.) And there are other reasons to tune in:

Speaking of the Flickr competition, it remains open for entries through midnight Eastern Time on March 18. With several $55 Women's Sunday tickets up for grabs, as well as a $215 Sunday Million ticket for the winner, it's time to get your photos submitted! Team Pro Celina Lin is the official judge of the contest, and winners will be announced in the March 25 web chat. All of the details for the competition can be found in this blog post.

We can't wait to start the celebration, so please join us for the freerolls, our first birthday Women's Sunday, and in the live web chat on March 25!
