Posted by Steve Ruddock on Feb 02, 2010 Posted in Poker Room News | No Comments »

This past Sunday, almost across the board, the online poker sites were running special promotions for their big guaranteed tournaments, including PokerStars upping the guaranteed prize-pool of the Sunday Million to a whopping $2 million!

Well, with 19,377 participants the total prize-pool grew to $3.875 million, a Sunday Million record. OX45AL was able to take down the tournament for a $550k payday, also a Sunday Million record! Once again PokerStars has shown that when the online poker sites compete, it’s Pokerstars that comes out on top.

PokerStars is the #1 online poker site in terms of traffic, and The Sunday Million has become the most high profile weekly tournament in all of online poker; with a guaranteed prize-pool of $1.5 million, which is often easily eclipsed. The winner of the Sunday Million often walks away with around $200k; not bad for a tournament with a $215 buy-in!
