PokerStars Festival Chile gets $500,000 guarantee

If you play the $1,650 PokerStars Festival Chile Main Event, you'll be playing for a prize pool worth at least $500,000 no matter how many show up to play. Today, PokerStars revealed that it's put up a half-million-dollar guarantee on that Main Event.

By now, you've probably familiarized yourself with the PokerStars Festivals that traveled to London and Rozvadov. Now, the circus is headed to Vina del Mar Chile for eight days of poker and a slate of tourneys that suits just about every bankroll.
