The PokerStars Sunday Million Set to Return Soon

The best poker players in the world are currently playing in the biggest online poker tournament on the planet, the World Championship of Online Poker. That means the PokerStars Sunday Million is currently taking a break but when it returns the players will be able to enjoy a high stake poker game, like the WCOOP, every Sunday.

There were 5,893 players for the first Sunday Million on 5th March, 2006 and they generated a prize fund of $1,178,600. The best player who competed in that first tournament was ‘aaaaaaaa’. March of this year saw the Sunday Million celebrate five years of competition and PokerStars marked it with a bonus prize. The winner from the 59,128 strong field was guaranteed the keys of a Lamborghini Gallardo supercar. The lucky man was 25 year-old Luke ‘Bdbeatslayer’ Vrabel, who hails from Harford in Connecticut. The young man later confessed that he nearly didn’t participate as he felt his form had been too poor as the Sunday Million birthday bash approached.

You don’t need to be a high-flyer to enter the PokerStars Sunday Million tournament. There are satellite events held every day with buy-ins from as little as $2.20 or 400 FPPs. Check the Tourney/Satellite tabs in your PokerStars software to enter. If your budget allows, you could sign up for the main event on a Sunday and pay the $215 buy-in. To find the main event go to the Tourney/Regular tabs.

When the last card has fallen in the WCOOP, the Sunday Million will return to its regular slot on the Sunday schedule. Play gets underway at 14:30 ET (19:30 UK time) if you would like to play some high stakes poker.
