PokerStars’ Sunday Majors are Moving

Share this

Everyone that plays online poker knows that Sundays are the day, out of the entire week and all the other action that's going on, that the world of online poker blooms from being a robust, daily flow to a monumental tidal wave of big tournament action. PokerStars’ Sunday Majors are a must play for everyone that considers themselves to be a pro, a grinder, or an aspiring pro.

The Sunday Majors are moving

Starting Sunday, June 5th, the Sunday Million, Sunday Warm-up, and Sunday Storm will start two hours earlier. The world's biggest weekly online tournaments are still in place, still on Sunday, just kicking off at a different time and to mark the occasion the tournament guarantees double on June 5th and $200,000 in value-added satellites are waiting for you. Playing the Sunday Majors on June 5th will find you competing for a share of a combined guaranteed prize pool of almost $500,000.

Qualifying is easy

Daily value-added satellite tournaments are running at the same time every day as the new start time for the target event. To qualify for the Sunday Million, look for satellites that start every day at 14:30 ET from now until June 4th.  All of these satellites are listed in the PokerStars lobby under 'Tourney' - 'Satellites.'
