Posted on

Online poker “Friend of PokerStars” and twitch sensation Jaime Staples, will be streaming his attempt at the $10m GTD Sunday Million on March 20th PokerStars Sunday Million has been one of the most enduringly popular weekly tournaments in online poker history, and to celebrate it’s 10th anniversary this March they will be hosting a special Sunday Million with an incredible $10,000,000 guaranteed prize-pool, the joint biggest guaranteed prize-pool in the tournament’s history. The $10m gtd tourney will take place on 20th March and it won’t be too surprising if the prize-pool swells beyond the $10m guarantee given that, unlike other Sunday Millions, players will be able to rebuy up to three times during the 3 hours of late registration for the $215 buy-in tournament. Also, Stars are giving away some 1,200 seats to the tournament via a series of hyper-turbo freerolls every Saturday on the run up to March 20th. A whole host of PokerStars pros will be lining up to try their luck, and the likes of Bertrand “ElKy” Grospellier, George Danzer, Jaime Staple, and Felxi Schneiders have confirmed they’ll be hosting live streams during the tournament. The $10m guarantee already makes this the 4th biggest prize-pool in SM history, with the largest currently being a huge $12,423,200 pool attracted by the 5th anniversary event in December 2011 which drew a huge 62,116 players, followed by the other 5th Anniversary SM in March 2011 which amassed an $11,825,600 prize-pool. The only other prize-pool over the magic $10m mark was last year’s 9th anniversary SM, which had a $9m guarantee which ended up at $10,086,400.
