PokerStars has just announced that they’ll be running a brand new online tournament called the Red Spade Open. This is the 1st time that the Red Spade Open is being played and it should be an exciting tournament that you don’t want to miss. Not only will you be trying to beat 1000’s of PokerStars players, but there will also be quite a few PokerStars Pros. There will be some big names in the tournament, so you may end up playing with a pro that you’re used to watching on television.

The inaugural PokerStars Red Spade Open will take place on July 31st 2011 at 3PM ET. The buy-in for the tournament is $50 + $5, but there are going to be tons of satellite tournaments leading up to the tournament. PokerStars announced that the prize pool will be a guaranteed $1 million, but I think the prize pool will go well over the $1M that’s guaranteed. The winner of the tourney is guaranteed to win $200,000 as well, which means everyone is going to want to enter this tournament.

Satellite tournaments will be available from now until the start of the tournament. You’ll be able to enter satellites starting at only $1.10; so many players are going to be able to qualify for the tournament without spending much money. PokerStars will also be adding a $100 bounty to all of the PokerStars Pros that participate in the event. If you knockout one of the pros for the tournament you’ll add $100 to your bankroll.

Many PokerStars Pros are expected to play in the Red Spade Open, so there should be quite a few bounties up for grabs. There is no doubt that the tournament is going to attract the best poker players on PokerStars, but with the massive prize pool I’m sure a lot of players are going to end up making money. PokerStars announced that they’ll possibly be running the Red Spade Open again in the future, so if you can’t play on the 31st of this month you might be able to play in the event in the future.

PokerStars download has decided to cancel the “Bigger $55” tournament on the weekend of the Red Spade Open, as most of the players will want to play in this tournament rather than the “Bigger $55”. The “Bigger $55” will be back on August 7th 2011 at its regularly scheduled time, so don’t fret when you don’t see the tournament available next in the PokerStars lobby next weekend.
