Some may remember the movie "Million Dollar Baby" from 2004 with Clint Eastwood, Hillary Swank and Morgan Freeman. Quite a lot of the high stakes action in online poker indeed reminds of the boxing theme as well with many uppercuts and knockouts, now the tournament grinders will get their opporunity again.
maratik's "wont million" story may soon be repeated as PokerStars has just announced the $7 Million Guaranteed prize pool for its flagship tournament Sunday Million as part of the 7th anniversary. The Buy-In remains at $200+$15 and a ton of FPP and cash qualifiers will be available, a minimum of $1 Million is set to be awarded to the winner.
Starting time: Sunday March 3rd 1.30pm EST
15 minute blind levels - 10,000 starting stack
If you don't have an account yet on PokerStars, you can create one through Pokerspace and take advantage of a 100% up to $600 first deposit bonus.
On its "sister site" Full Tilt Poker, the approach is slightly different as the "Cool Million" guarantees $1 Million for a modest Buy-In of $11. More than 3,500 players are already registered and 120,000 max can participate in this tournament, the seating period has been listed with 30 minutes. This tournament will be played as Turbo re-entry and you can enter a maximum of three times. $90,000 are reserved for the winner and if you are looking for a deep run, better stock up on coffee and energy drinks now.
