Ready for a carnival? We don't have a ferris wheel or cotton candy, but we have $2 million if that suits you. Why? Well, it's another PokerStars bash, of course.
How's this for a statistic? Sometime this month, PokerStars will kick off tourney number 800 million.
That's right. In the past 12 years, PokerStars has dealt nearly 800 million tournaments. And because PokerStars likes to celebrate things like this, it's decided to throw a big party with hundreds of thousands of dollars you can win.
What's it involve? Well, October 13-20, you will see bigger guarantees, special tournaments, give-aways, and Golden Sit & Go's.
Here's a quick rundown of what you should be looking for:
Tourney Number 800 Million: On October 20th, PokerStars will host the tourney #800 million with a $1 million guaranteed prize pool and $100,000 in give-aways. Best of all, you can qualify for $1.
Golden Sit & Go's: The Golden Sit & Go's are back October 13-19 and you can win half a million bucks in added cash prizes.
Big, Bigger, Biggest Tourneys: You already know the Daily Bigs. Now the Bigs are getting bigger October 14-20 with $2 million in increased guarantees, up to triple the prize money, and a hundred grand in bubble prizes.
That's a poker player's kind of carnival right there, and you don't even have to worry about throwing up on the tilt-a-whirl!
