PokerStars 10th Anniversary: Final weekend checklist

December 16, 2011


This is it. The final weekend of the PokerStars 10th Anniversary celebration has arrived. I hope you have prepared in advance for this, because this could easily end up being the biggest weekend of your year, if not your entire life. Somebody is going to win at least $2 million this weekend, and if that doesn’t change your life for the better, there aren’t many things that will. If you’re not prepared for this weekend’s festivities and the $10 million guaranteed Sunday Million, you now have 48 hours to get ready. That’s not a lot of time, but with the following checklist, you might just get ready.

  • $215–Find $215 right now. That’s the normal cost of a Sunday Million. Usually that gives you a short at a first prize worth $150,000 to $200,000. This weekend, the same $215 will get a chance at a $2 million first prize. The $215 is crucial. Set it aside right now and sign up for the $10 million guaranteed Sunday Million. At this writing, nearly 10,000 people have already signed up. Cards go in the air at 14:30 ET Sunday.

  • $11–Okay. You’re right. $215 isn’t small change. We don’t all have it to set aside. How about $11? If you can swing that, there is a $11 Sunday Million Mega Satellite with 1,000 seats guaranteed. It’s happening 45 minutes before the Sunday Million.

  • $1–Eleven dollars is too much. Okay. You have a buck, right? Alright, then sign up for one of the $1 satellites to the $11 Mega. Do that right now and get your seat in the qualifier.

  • Sustenance–As long as you’re going to be saving lots of money on the entry fee, you might as well treat yourself to a lot of good snacks. Your shopping list should include Red Bull (1 case), Caribou Coffee (1 pound), Frozen Pizza (4), Bananas (8), Butler to handle the rest of your needs (1).

  • $10,000–Listen, if you can afford to hire a butler for the weekend, you might just have the scratch to play on of online poker’s most prestigious events of the year. The 10th Anniversary $10,000 High Roller has a $500,000 guarantee and will host some of the biggest names in the game.

  • $700–This has nothing to do with the 10th Anniversary celebration, but as long as as you are settled in for the big day, you might as well play the Very Big $700 Mega Qualifier for the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure with 30 PCA main event packages guaranteed. It runs at 15:00ET Sunday. There are also satellites for that qualifier are running right now.
