Race to your calendars and save the dates: Sunday February 21 to Sunday March 7. Be quick about it. Those two weeks host this year’s Turbo Series on PokerStars — a typically high quality, wide-ranging and rich tournament series where the only thing that’s unusual is the time it takes to play.

Yes, the popular high-octane Turbo Series returns towards the end of this month promising 134 tournaments over 15 days with more than $25 million guaranteed.

There’s a $2 million guarantee on the $1,050 “high” buy-in Main Event and $1 million on the $55 “low” version, both of which take place on March 7.

And because this is the Turbo Series, everything just takes place more quickly. None of the tournaments will go into a second day. Each event will be done in a few hours start to finish.

The full schedule is available at the foot of this post, or on the Schedule page, where we’ll also be publishing daily results.

OPEN TO ALL

As always with a major PokerStars series, the Turbo Series is open to players of all bankrolls. The lowest buy-in is $11 and the highest is $5,200, but there are always satellites running to get you in on the cheap.

There are special $4 buy-in Spin & Gos available in the client, with a few $1,050 Main Event tickets up for grabs. And there is also a daily Turbo Series Fast Track qualification route, with buy-in steps costing $1, $11 and $109. Players can buy-in at any of the levels and progress towards a $1,050 Main Event ticket.

The price-points for the various Turbo Series tournaments will be familiar to everyone who has played on the site before:

$11 (15 events)
$22 (25 events)
$55 (28 events)
$109 (28 events)
$215 (18 events)
$530 (12 events)
$1,050 (6 events)
$5,200 (2 events)

Incidentally, if you want to play every event, it’s $32,237.

THE BIGGEST GUARANTEES

There are two Main Events this year with buy-ins of $55 and $1,050 and those two events have the biggest guarantees of the series, $2 million and $1 million, respectively. They take place on Sunday, March 7, which is the final day of the series, but there’s also a sneaky seven-figure guarantee event the week before.

The $1,050 8-Max PKO, on Sunday, February 28, also offers $1 million in the prize pool before a card is dealt. Unsurprisingly, the other two huge guarantees are attached to the two biggest buy-in tournaments, where there’s $750K guaranteed for a couple of $5K buy-ins.

$2 million: Event #127 – $1,050 NLHE, Main Event High
$1 million: Event #128 – $55 NLHE, Main Event Low
Both Sunday, March 7, 2.30pm ET

$1 millon: Event #64 – $1,050 NLHE, 8-Max, PKO
Sunday, February 28, 1pm ET

$750,000: Event #3 – $5,200 NLHE, 8-Max
Sunday, February 21, 1pm ET

$750,000: Event #126 – $5,200 NLHE, 8-Max, PKO
Sunday, March 7, 1pm ET
