PokerStars Winter Series

You’ve no doubt heard… Winter Series is coming! Are you ready?

The huge tournament series will run on PokerStars from December 25 through January 12. There are no less than 291 events all told, with guaranteed prize pools adding up to $50 million.

The Winter Series schedule features three tiers’ worth of buy-in levels — “low,” “middle,” and “high” — plus 39 non-tiered events as well.

Big guarantees highlight Winter Series schedule

Buy-ins range from $2.20 all of the way up to $10,300. The three big Main Events (Event #103) will each start Sunday, January 9 with buy-ins of $55, $530, and $5,200 and guarantees of $1M, $1.5M, and $2M (respectively).

The Sunday Two Million also stands out on the schedule as another marquee tournament (Event #55-M). That one comes Sunday, January 2 with a $215 buy-in and a $2M guarantee.

There are other events with enormous guarantees worth highlighting on the Winter Series schedule.

One is Event #109, an untiered $109 buy-in “phase” event featuring a big $1.25M guarantee.

There’s another seven-figure guarantee for the low-tiered crowd. Event #9-L is a $55 buy-in PKO tournament with a $1M guarantee.

The other Event #9 tournaments will be big ones, too. Both Event #9-M ($530 buy-in) and Event #9-H ($5,200 to play) will have $750K guarantees.

Event #18, a $55 “phase” event, also has a $750,000 guaranteed prize pool, making it worth noting as well.

For those with deeper bankrolls, the $1,050 buy-in Event $108-H, a PKO event, also sports a heft $750K guarantee.

And for the high rollers, the $10,300 buy-in Event #68-H NLHE event has a $750K guarantee.

Winter Series satellites already underway

Satellites for Winter Series events are already up and running. At the moment there are lots of $2.20 and $5.50 multi-table satellites awarding seats into Phase 1 of the aforementioned $55 buy-in Event #18 (which itself is in fact already underway).

Keep an eye out going forward as more satellites will soon be appearing in the lobby. Win your seats now and be ready to join the fun when the series kicks off in earnest with 14 tournaments on December 25.
