Sunday Online Poker Tournaments: Fun for the Weather

03.02.2015
Major tournament series, Pokerstars

A Sunday at home due to nasty weather is one of the worst nightmares imaginable for many. Indeed, what can you do? It is clear that someone is having fun by "generalizing" an apartment, someone can spend the whole day on classmates, commenting on other people's photos, or reading topics on the forum, but is this entertainment worthy of any attention at all? Of course not. Definitely and one hundred percent. It is quite another matter when a Sunday is dedicated to something really interesting and ... capable of giving a really good mood and so, for a minute, a million. The latter is no joke. Two Russians just did just that - they became Sunday millionaires, just spending an evening playing an intellectual-sports game, where any talented and well-trained participant has a chance to become a millionaire.

Millionaires from Russia

The two Russians who fought at the online poker room PokerStars have become millionaires by winning two classic Sunday tournaments: $ 109 + P Sunday Rebuy [$ 200,000 GTD] and $ 215 Sunday Million [$ 1,000,000 GTD]. The player who registered under the pseudonym SlimPanther (the name was not disclosed) won against a thousand opponents and received almost sixty thousand dollars, that is, in ruble terms he became a real millionaire! And literally after him, another Russian, hiding under the nickname mastervp888, snatched a victory in the famous $ 215 Sunday Million tournament. True, there were much more rivals in it, six and a half thousand people. But the prize was also more substantial, one hundred and twenty thousand dollars, which is very impressive at the current exchange rate.

So much for Sunday fun! As they say, there would be a desire to arrange a really interesting form of leisure for yourself, but there will be an opportunity. Moreover, even in the absence of a computer at home (such nonsense also happens sometimes), you can play from a phone or a tablet, if there is a certain convenience in this. That is, even if the deceiving parents managed to lure the younger generation to their dacha, and by the evening the potatoes were already dug up, and the kebabs were eaten, and, in general, there is nothing else to do, then as an option “not to get bored”, the Sunday tournament too will be perfect. It remains, as they say, only to figure out how to take part in this entertainment and what is required for this.

How to become a Sunday millionaire

You can start your acquaintance with the most famous tournament Sunday Million - this is the most ambitious weekly championship on the planet, where the guaranteed prize pool is really one million dollars. Well, the first prize, even if the “carve-up” is taken into account, simply cannot be less than one hundred thousand dollars. True, you will have to fight for the title of Sunday millionaire very seriously: after all, thousands of players come to the tournament, wishing to become the owners of the most valuable prizes and audience sympathy! So, learn to play No Limit Texas Hold'em as best you can, and you will have a chance to seriously enrich yourself, as hundreds of players who have won this tournament have already done, including our compatriots who became laureates of this competition.

The first tournament of this year was held on January 4th.

However, tournaments are held regularly, and everyone can take part in them.

It is worth recalling that in addition to the "millionth" tournament, there is also Sunday Rebuy - it implies that you can use both addons and rebuys, however, who likes to play with all sorts of poker programs should learn to do without them, but again, the result is worth it - two hundred thousand dollars of guaranteed prize pool is simply obligatory!

Videos from these tournaments are often filmed by the players themselves who have made it to the final tables.

If you know English well, then watching this video and listening to the comments will obviously not be superfluous!

It's easy to get into the Sunday millionaire tournaments, you can win your seat using hundreds of satellite options. Qualifying rounds are held in the online room every week. Well, those who do not want to "mess around" for a long time can simply make the desired buy-in, it is currently two hundred and fifteen dollars. The tournament takes place at half past ten in Moscow in the evening, so you will have time to weed the country gardens before the start, and even eat up barbecue. The main thing is not to overeat, as experienced athletes say, that a hungry or overly well-fed poker player is not a player. You can register for satellites with penny buy-ins of half a dollar or twenty-five FPPs through the PokerStars lobby in the dedicated Tournaments tab. And also you can pay attention to the variety of other Sunday offers. If one or even two is not enough for you. Well, really, not to be lost on a good day just because of bad weather!

 

​You can, for example, register for the Sunday Warm-Up, where the guaranteed prize pool is $ 500,000, or you can visit the Sunday Storm with a guaranteed prize pool of $ 300,000. Taking the first prize of the "warm-up" tournament, you can get seventy thousand.  That is, in the morning to improve your mood with the status of a millionaire! And there is also a huge possibility that even if you do not win, you will find yourself at the same table with the best poker players on the planet. Many people start Sunday just like that - with a warm-up tournament. You can also participate in it by gaining access through dozens of satellites that take place directly on the site. All information can be found in the detailed menu of the lobby, there is quite a lot written about all Sunday tournaments and about through which events, with which buy-in and how you can get entrance tickets to online entertainment.

Well, do not forget that, among other things, weekly tournaments are an opportunity to one day become the same PokerStarsPro that millions of mind sports fans love, respect and adore. All of them still take part in the same events, they all started with the fact that for the first time they won weekly battles, and then moved on to world championships, where they received gold bracelets. Remember, bad weather is just a good reason to become a millionaire!
