One of the most popular tournaments held at PokerStars returns on April 28 sporting a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. We are of course talking about the Red Spade Open.
The $55 buy-in online tournament attracts players in their droves thanks to the massive guaranteed prize pool, of which at least $200,000 is locked up for the champion, but also because the vast majority of the Team PokerStars Pros also compete in it.
Every Team PokerStars Pro has a $100 bounty on their heads, which gives players an added incentive to bust them out in case bragging rights weren’t enough!
April 28’s edition of the Red Spade Open will be the fifth time this amazing tournament has run and if it is anything close to the previous event then those playing in it are in for a major treat. When the Red Spade Open last ran on August 12, 2012 it attracted a massive field of 24,497 players who created a prize pool of $1,224,850.
The eventual champion was NURLAN81 of Kazakhstan who walked away with the massive $244,979.24 first place prize. What would you do with such a sum?
