Beginners and experienced online poker pros test their skills on PokerStars each Sunday in the PokerStars Sunday Million. This is the biggest and best weekly poker tournament online with a cool $1 million guaranteed. It’s also an opportunity for beginners, intermediate players and advanced poker pro alike to score a big win without making a huge investment.
The PokerStars Sunday Million takes place each Sunday at 2:30 PM (EST) and has a $215 buy-in. Can’t afford the $215 each week? Don’t sweat it. PokerStars players can earn their way into the Sunday Million for as little as $0.55 or 25 FPP player points. The best way to get into the PokerStars Sunday Million is by winning one of the many satellite tournaments offered. After signing up for PokerStars, register for a satellite tournament in the “special tournaments” tab.
Satellite Poker Tournaments Level the Playing Field
Speaking of PokerStars, everyone remembers Chris Moneymaker’s amazing championship run in the 2003 World Series of Poker. Moneymaker earned his way into the WSOP by winning a satellite tournament on PokerStars. Online poker satellite tournaments have helped level the playing field by giving players such as Moneymaker an opportunity to compete in major poker tournaments.
If PokerStars hadn’t offered WSOP satellites back in 2003, Chris Moneymaker would probably still be an accountant (not that there’s any shame in that). Moneymaker isn’t the only example of poker players that got their big break in poker by winning a satellite tournament. Satellite poker tournaments give the “regular folks” a chance to win big.
Players such as Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth and Johnny Chan can afford expensive buy-ins. The average poker player cannot. That’s where satellite tournaments come into play. Even a $215 buy-in tournament such as the PokerStars Sunday Million is difficult for most poker players to afford. However, this is the type of tournament that can be highly profitable if you go on a run.
Anyone Can Win the PokerStars Sunday Million
With players regularly earning their way into the tournament for less than a buck, it’s hard to argue the benefit of giving it your best shot. There are many other great poker tournaments online. We will continue to update you with information about big online poker tournaments and ways to enter for free or inexpensively. Good luck each week in the PokerStars Sunday Million!
