Sunday Storm Tournament at PokerStars

23 March 2011 by admin

PokerStarsSquareThings are changing at PokerStars, the most popular poker room on the Internet. They have long been running poker tournaments each week with big money up for grabs, but they are now upping the ante. The Sunday 1/4 Million tournament have been given a new name. It will now be called the Sunday Storm tournament. That may not be a big deal to you, but this next part should have your attention. They are also upping the prize pool – quadrupling it, to be exact.

On the first Sunday Storm poker tournament, PokerStars is offering a guaranteed prize pool of $1,000,000. If you got lost in all of those zeros, let me point out that it is one million dollars (imagine that in a Dr. Evil voice). The first Sunday Storm tournament, with $1 million up for grabs, will be on Sunday, March 27.

The entry fee for the poker tournament is $11, but it is also popular to get into the tournament for free. There are two different ways to earn free admission into the Sunday Storm tournament. The first is if you are a new member. If so, make a deposit of $20 or more and input the coupon code of “STORM.” Doing so will earn you a ticket to the tournament.

The other way to earn free entry is by playing your way in. Starting back on March 15 and ending at noon on March 27, PokerStars is running freeroll tournaments every hour. Players who enter those free tournaments and finish in the top ten will win seats in the Sunday Storm tournament.

The $1 million prize pool is only for the first Sunday Storm tournament, taking place on March 27. After that, from April 3 on, the tournament will have a $300,000 prize pool. That’s a significant drop-off, but it’s still an increase from the prize pool previously associated with the tournament, $250,000. To take part in the free satellite tournaments or buy your way into the main event, visit PokerStars.
