For First Time in History, PokerStars Cuts Buy-in for Sunday Million Below $100
For the first time in 13 years, PokerStars has cut the buy-in for its Sunday Million tournament below $100, to a mere $54.5. Out of this $54.5, $50 will go into the prize pool.
Despite the sharp cup in buy-in, the $1 million guarantee remains. PokerStars will need to get 20,000 entries, and it’s largest ever to equal the prize money.
Earlier in the year, PokerStars had cut the buy-in for its Sunday Million to $109 from $215. It should be noted that the buy-in has been cut to $54.5 for this week only.
This week’s Sunday Million will be played over 2 days. Day 1 will begin on December 15, from 7:00 p.m. CET (Central European Time) and last for nine-and-a-half hours. Day 2 will begin on December 16 from 7:00 p.m. CET and last till the game is finished.
This week, PokerStars has also cut buy-in for its Sunday Warm-up to $107.5 while keeping the guarantee intact at $125,000. The buy-in for Sunday Storm will be cut to $5.5 for December 15, with the guarantee intact at $150,000.
The half-price buy-in for Sunday Warm-up and Sunday Storm is for one day only and offers many satellites.
