PokerStars Online Poker Tournament Weekend Review

Visit Poker Stars

PokerStars hosted its weekly online poker extravaganza last Sunday, consisting of the Poker Stars Sunday Warm-Up, leading into the Sunday Million, and ending with the Sunday Second Chance tournament; a total guarantee of $1.7 million most weekends.
PokerStars current 2X promotion hit the Sunday Warm-Up this week, doubling the guaranteed prize pool from $500,000 to $1,000,000, and as is the nature of the world’s largest online poker room, PokerStars saw an excess of entries to each tournament, that raised the overall prize pools to a total of more than 3 million.
The PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up kicked off at 12:45 ET, drawing a very high number of players as the online poker room announced the 2X Promo would double the prize pool to $1 million. 4,050 players showed up to battle it as the top 630 spots would claim a piece of the prize pool, further extended to $1,123,400 by an overflow of entries.
It took well over 10 hours to complete the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up, when finally “richlizard” was able to overtake “ShowM4n” at the final table for the first place prize of $144,918.

It was going to be a long night at PokerStars, taking nearly 11 hours to reveal a victor. In the end, “avkid86” ousted “strahhh25” in heads-up to pocket $202,721 for the 1st place spot.
