Women's Sunday to the power of three
Some tournaments (and I'm not naming names...) have million dollar guarantees, thousands of players, and a buy-in that might just cover your weekly rent bill. And then some are on a smaller scale, with less fuss and expense, played by a happy few who enjoy regular poker action with a friendly female slant.
I expect the $55 Women's Sunday players like the prize cash as much as anyone else, but dollars are not the only motivator in poker. There are a few fun extras to this weekly women's tourney, like...
... Wondering if you'll get a chance to play with a Team PokerStars Pro or Team Online Pro and take her bounty.
... Knowing the final table gets a write-up each week on PokerStars Blog.
... Regular special editions with extra prizes and surprises.
The Women's Sunday turns three years old this weekend, which is a fine reason to make a promotional edition. The 3rd Anniversary promotion has resulted in much brainstorming, and the whole thing has turned into a bit of a three-fest.
So, there will be...
... Three times the guarantee (a $30,000 guaranteed prize pool)
... Three times the Team Pro bounties ($150 for busting any Pro)
... Three free PokerStars Women's Club tickets to everyone who participates
And it's on March 30 (or 30/03) if you want to throw in some extra threes.
The buy-in is $55, which we couldn't do much about really, but, guess what? We three-upped the satellites! So we have $0.33 qualifiers running every day, and a 30-seat guaranteed $11 last chance qualifier, too.
Along with all these extras in the tournament, PokerStars Women has been devising ways to add fun away from the tables. So, we have a virtual edition of the Women's Sunday on our Facebook page. Well, "virtual edition" is one way to look at it. This is a quiz called, "Have you got what it takes to win the Women's Sunday?" Simply answer a few questions, and a Team Pro will give you a verdict on whether you would have won or lost. It is a fun way to warm up ahead of the real thing. Play the game here.
And we have a "predict how many players" competition, with the fine prize of an iPad 2 for the closest guess. To give you a heads-up on how many that might be, here are numbers from the last two Women's Sunday birthday editions:
We hope you enjoy the Women's Sunday 3rd Anniversary and have a good time with our quizzes. You can check out the Women's Sunday landing page for all of the details.
