PokerStars rolls out qualifiers for Sunday Special Live
7 Sep 2017
The first ever MEGASTACK event in the U.S. kicks off with Sunday Special Live to coincide with the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker (NJCOOP), a two-week online series taking place at PokerStars New Jersey, making the Garden State the place to be for poker in October. NJCOOP, which will run from 30 September until 16 October at PokerStars New Jersey, is one of New Jersey's richest online tournament series, with $1.2 million in guaranteed prize pools.
Many players have already qualified for the Sunday Special Live through $20 and $30 online satellites, but special offers, including $2.50 Spin & Gos and daily freerolls awarding free satellite tickets, will run from 11 September to help players attend this unique event.
Players will vie for a chance to win a share of the $125,000 guaranteed prize pools across two great tournaments: the $220 Sunday Special Live and the $120 NLH Cheap and Deep tournament. Chess champion, author and Team PokerStars Ambassador Jen Shahade and Team PokerStars Pro Chris Moneymaker have both confirmed their attendance.
"This is an everyman event suitable for everyone's pocket," said Team PokerStars Pro Chris Moneymaker. "As well as the excellent organization that goes hand in hand with a PokerStars event, the promise of a decent tournament structure and a $125,000 guarantee makes this a must-play event."
