PokerStars Sunday Storm celebrates 6th anniversary

7 Mar 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Sunday Storm celebrates its sixth anniversary on Sunday, 19 March at 13:00 ET with an enormous $1,000,000 prize pool that will guarantee $100,000 for the winner. The weekly tournament is one of the most popular offerings at PokerStars.com, an Amaya Inc. brand, and this special installment is to celebrate its sixth year delivering big prizes from small buy-ins.

With direct buy-in only $11, the tournament will award the a first place guarantee of at least 9,000 times their entry fee. That $100,000 payout is approximately three times larger than the tournament's regular weekly top payout.

Additional satellites
Players can play their way to a seat for much less than $11 via a range of satellites, running online at PokerStars from today. In addition to the regular Storm Satellites, Sit & Go Shootout satellites are available from six StarsCoin.

There will also be three $1.10 special satellites, guaranteeing a total of 1,000 seats to Sunday Storm:
  • Mega Satellite: Sunday, 19 March, 10:00 ET, 500 seats guaranteed
  • Deadline Satellite: Sunday, 19 March, 12:15 ET, 250 seats guaranteed
  • Last Chance Satellite: Sunday, 19 March, 13:00 ET, 250 seats guaranteed
Re-entry
If players are knocked out of the Sunday Storm 6th Anniversary tournament they will have the option to take another shot at the $100,000 first prize by re-entering. Re-entry does not have to be immediate but it needs to be before the end of late registration. Upon re-entry, players will be treated as a new player entering the tournament field and will receive a new starting chip stack while being re-seated at a random table; the new buy-in will be added to the prize pool.

10 million entries to Sunday Storm and counting
Over the last six years, the Sunday Storm has been played by 1.2 million players generating a total of 10 million entries. In the last year alone, there have been 1.2 million entries into the weekly Sunday Storm tournaments from 260,000 unique players, giving an average tournament participation of 23,000 entries.
