PokerStars Celebrates 10th Anniversary with $10 Million Sunday Million

PokerStars 10th Anniversary Celebration
Share this

There's a big celebration going on at PokerStars next month. PokerStars launched their real money poker site on December 12th, 2001, and has steadily grown to become the largest online poker room in the world. The 10th Anniversary Celebration will give players a chance at countless giveaways and promotions and included in those promotions is the biggest Sunday Million ever.

PokerStars weekly flagship event, the Sunday Million, will have an incredible, guaranteed prize pool of $10 MILLION! That, Ladies and Gentlemen, is the biggest ever Sunday Million and the buy-in is still just $215. One player will be the last one standing and that winner/player can expect to stack a massive top prize of at least $2,000,000. Tyson "POTTERPOKER" Marks was the last player to take down a $2 Million win in a single tournament on PokerStars. POTTERPOKER won the $5,200 buy-in 2010 World Championship of Online Poker Main Event and claimed $2,278,097.

The excitement is running high as PokerStars prepares to give away 100 packages (each valued at more than $15,000) to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA). The PCA takes place from January 5th-January 14th, 2012, in the Bahamas in Paradise Island. Starting November 13th and running through December 11th, there will be two weekly qualifiers hosted at PokerStars; each awards 10 PCA prize packages and $10,000 cash to the winner.

"Amazing that it’s been 10 years! I'm very proud of my association with PokerStars, and this December's 10th Anniversary Celebration is going to be a doozy!” said Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu. “There will be tons of cash prizes for bankrolls of all sizes, plus giveaways and a $10 million Sunday Million event.”

Daryl "aaaaaa" Jace, an American poker pro, beat a field of nearly 6,000 players when PokerStars launched the first Sunday Million On March 5, 2006. Jace took down $173,844 for his first place prize and since then the Sunday Million reigns as the most anticipated and biggest weekly online poker tournament out there - anywhere!
