Don't Miss the PokerStars Stadium Series on PokerNews This Sunday

PokerStars Stadium Series

The brand-new PokerStars Stadium Series kicked off it's four-week online extravaganza with $50,000,000 in guaranteed prizes this past Sunday. While already a stand-out festival on it's own with 102 tournaments ranging from buy-ins of $5.50 all the way up to $5,200, there's a ton of additional value added to this unique festival that makes it a must-play for every grinder out there.

The Stadium Series consists of two types of events: Stadium Series Heats, which are regular tournaments with bonuses added on top, and Stadium Series Finals every Sunday starting July 12. Finish high in the Heats and a free ticket to a Sunday Final awaits with even more money up top.

Make the final table of one of the Final Tables and a free $5,200 Stadium Series Grand Final ticket awaits in addition to the regular prize money. Note that all Weekly Finals are freezeouts, creating a level playing field. One shot only: spend it wisely!

For those that make it to the Grand Final or buy in directly, a mouth-watering guarantee of $5,000,000 and a first-place prize of over a million awaits the winner. The Stadium Series Freezeout Grand Final will be played out on August 2-4.

The free tickets to the Sunday Finals aren't just won by running deep in one of the Heats, they'll automatically be dropped while you're playing the events as well. In total, PokerStars will hand out $2,000,000 in free tickets over the course of the series.

  • Step 1: $1 Sit & Go Tournament (12 players)
  • Step 2: $11 Sit & Go Tournament (21 players)
  • Step 3: $109 MTT Tournament
