About the Sunday Million: PokerStars

The PokerStars Sunday Million tournament is the largest weekly online poker tournament.  The Sunday Million has a guaranteed prizepool of $1.5 milllion, a 1st place prize worth more than $180,00 and it attracts over 7,000 players each week.  This means the prizepool is often higher than $1.5 million.  The PokerStars Sunday Million tournament starts at 16:30 ET every Sunday.  In order to register for the tournament, you’ll need to download PokerStars and the tournament in the PokerStar lobby. Beware however that you’ll be playing a good 9-10 hours if you make the final table!

The Sunday Million is a favorite among tournament players because of its slow blind level and deep stack structure.  Blinds increase every 15 minutes and players receive 10,000 starting chips.  Because the blinds start at just 25/50 with longer blind levels, players can pace themselves and get more value against nits then they would in a turbo tournaments.  The top 15% of entrants are paid, and the winner of the tournament receives around $180,000.Sunday.
