Why PokerStars Moved the Sunday $9 Million Anniversary Tournament
PokerStars plans to celebrate its ninth anniversary of the Sunday Million tournament on March 15, by bumping the guarantee to this tournament to a jaw-dropping $9 million, while keeping the regular $215 buy-in.
This tournament was originally scheduled on March 8, however, as PokerStars explains on a blog titled Why PokerStars moved the Sunday Million anniversary tournament, it was moved after players speaking up that this conflicts with International Women's Day, which takes place on the same day.
International Women's Day not only commemorates the improvements many societies have made towards the equality between men and women, but also is a great way to honor women who are important in your life including your mother, sister, wife, daughter, girlfriend, or grandmother.

Guide to Limit Hold'em
Limit hold'em is the Game of the Week this week at Full Tilt. To help you learn how to play this variant of hold'em, Full Tilt blogger Gareth Chantler provides a helpful guide in a blog titled Learning Fixed Limit Hold’em.
The blog points out the main difference between the two games is that during limit hold'em, players are often priced into calling due to much better pot odds than usually occur during no limit hold'em.
To go along with all the helpful tips on the blog, there is also a six-minute video showing you how these tips work in action.
