One of the best Sunday tournaments for the more bankroll strapped players has always been the Sunday 1/4 Million tournament on PokerStars. With just an $11 buy-in, players can walk away with a significant five figure score. The name of the event didn't carry the same luster of the other Sunday majors so PokerStars decided to do something about it. Enter the 'Sunday Storm'.
The Sunday Storm is held every Sunday (obviously) at 15:30 ET with a normal guaranteed prize pool of $300,000. On Sunday, March 27 to celebrate the name change PokerStars has guaranteed a $1 million prize pool. According to the PokerStars game client the tournament will be capped at 150,000 players which would create a $1.5 million prize pool. Chances are this tournament will make the guarantee.
Hourly freerolls are running now through March 27 with the top 10 in each winning a seat. That's over 300 seats to be given away. Hourly 11 FPP 3x turbo rebuy satellites with 10 seats guaranteed are also running.
New players who sign up for an account before March 27 and use the code STORM will be given a free entry into the tournament.
Don't forget PokerStars is currently running a reload bonus. Use the code HOMEGAMES and you will receive a 25% bonus up to $150 and a free $5.50 Home Games tournament ticket.
Open a PokerStars account today and in addition to the free entry into the Sunday Storm you will receive a 100% sign up bonus of up to $600 when you use the marketing code rakeback.com.
