It’s nearly time for the weekend on PokerStars, and for many players that means getting stuck in and committing to bigger MTTs and longer sessions. The brand new Stadium Series starts this Sunday, and in the meantime there’s plenty of ways you can get cheap or free entry.
The Stadium Series will open its doors to the gladiators of the poker world this Sunday, with six tournaments and buy-ins ranging from $5.50 to $530.
If you do well in any of the low or medium stakes Heats, you’ll also receive a ticket to the Weekly Finals on top of any prize money you win. That means loads of added value in the Heats. Check the tourney lobbies closer to the time to see exactly how many tickets will be given away in each event.
Here’s the Summer Series schedule for Sunday:
$5.50 Heat 01-L, $125k gtd
$55 Heat 01-M, $400k gtd
$530 Heat 01-H, $750k gtd
$5.50 Heat 02-L (PKO), $75k gtd
$55 Heat 02-M (PKO), $400k gtd
$530 Heat 02-H (PKO), $750k gtd
If you’re looking for cheaper entry into the Stadium Series, check out the special edition $4 and $22 Spin N Gos to win tickets. There’s also dozens of satellites for each Heat and Final. Go to the “Stadium Series” tab to see options for MTT, SNG and Fast Track satellites.
You can also find Fast Track Freerolls running throughout the series. These tourneys have $2,000 in added value, and pay out Fast Track Steps tickets for the top finishers. These tickets can be used to work your way up and earn entry to the $5,200 Grand Final.
Click on the “Tourney” tab, then search “freeroll” to find these games. Registration opens one hour before, so take note and get there in time for your chance to play in the Stadium Series totally free.
Just a quick note to say that the usual weekend schedule is still running. The Sunday Million will be a 2-day event this week, but will have its usual $109 buy-in and $1 million guaranteed prize pool. Lower stakes players can still enjoy the Mini Million, Sunday Storm, Big and Hot tourneys, and so on.
Look out for Stadium Series ticket drops in certain tourneys this weekend. You’ll have the chance to pick up random Fast Track tickets that are given out during play – which means extra value. Click the “Tourney” tab and search “ticket drop” to find all of these games.
