PokerStars Constricts Buy-In For Sunday Million Online Poker Tournament

PokerStars recently announced that there will no longer be diversity in the buy-in of its weekly Sunday Million online poker tournament. From here on out, a set buy-in of $200+$15 will buy players into the Sunday Million poker tournament, worth a guaranteed prize pool of $1,000,000, each and every week.

Up until now, the PokerStars Sunday Million incurred a $200+$15 buy-in every weekend, expect for one. On the last Sunday of each month, the buy-in was upped to $500+$30. This will no longer be the case at PokerStars.

It may sound like a win-win situation for everyone, but that’s not exactly how some online poker fans are seeing it. While much more expensive, a $530 buy-in usually kept the numbers down in regards to less experienced players, allowing the high rollers to compete against one another. With a lower $215 buy-in, the field will be packed all month long.

PokerStars did not forget about their skilled high rollers, however. The online poker room is adding a new weekly tournament to the line-up, to be held each Sunday. One hour after the start of the Sunday Million, at 5:30 p.m. ET, PokerStars will host a $500+$30 online poker tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000.

Should this new PokerStars tournament become even half as popular as the Sunday Million, players can expect heightened prize pools on a regular basis. Comparatively, the Sunday Million has been known to escalate as high as $2.4 million in recent months.
