You certainly don’t have to be a professional poker player or a poker legend to play in the notoriously exciting Sunday Million tournament at PokerStars. Casual players can have the wrong perception of the most valuable online poker tournament in the world often thinking that it’s only the seasoned players with masses of online tournament experience that can enter the amazing Sunday Million battle every Sunday at PokerStars. Not only do casual players enter the great Sunday Million tournament but they also win regularly making a name for themselves and advancing their poker ‘careers’.
PokerStars Created the Moneymaker Effect’
Everybody needs to make a start somewhere so try to become the next Chris Moneymaker, the 27 year old accountant who won an $86 satellite to get to the WSOP in Vegas in 2003 where he won the World Series of Poker title. Since that time, PokerStars has benefited from the ‘moneymaker effect’ as players dream of replicating his phenomenal success at the tables. It put online poker on the map and has seen the game explode on line into a favourite pastime for millions of enthusiasts.
There are now more than 100 million players registered at PokerStars and the attraction of the card room where the action never stops has not waned at all for good reason. It hosts the most valuable online tournaments and gives players multiple possibilities to play without spending a lot of cash to take part.
It costs $215 to buy your seat directly to play at this incredible No Limit Texas Hold’em tournament where $1 million is guaranteed by the PokerStars card room no matter what. The winner walks away with a minimum of $150,000 and the rest of the pot is shared out with the players who end up in the money at the final table. It’s not a bad payout for a few hours doing what you love best on a Sunday.
As the Sunday Million tournament has grown in popularity the actual prize funds often exceed the guaranteed funds by a long shot so the winner usually gets more than the 150 K up for grabs and the rest of the players fare better than they thought possible. It’s definitely a scintillating way to boost your bank roll and set you up for great things in the world of poker where the sky is the limit at PokerStars.
