PokerStars 50/50 Series Kicks Off With $50 Buy-In Sunday Million

PokerStars 50/50 Series

This weekend sees the first seven of 50 tournaments on the bustling PokerStars 50/50 Series schedule, including a $50 buy-in special edition of the Sunday Million.

50/50 Series 03 [Progressive KO, Sunday Million SE], $1M Gtd shuffles up and deals at 6:00 p.m. GMT on January 31 and only costs $50 to enter despite having a $1 million guaranteed prize pool.

$23 from each $50 buy-in goes into the bounty prize pool meaning you win at least $11.50 for each and every opponent you send to the rail.

You receive 10,000 chips for your $50 buy-in giving you plenty of room to manoeuvrer considering the blinds start at only 25/50/5a and increase every 12-minutes. Should you dust off your stack during the first 3.25 hours of play, you can re-enter up to three times and take another bite at the $1 million cherry.

Playing for a slice of $1 million for a $50 buy-in is pretty cool in its own right, but imagine grinding for a massive six-figure prize after only paying $2.20 to enter. This is possible thanks to several satellites, feeding into the 50/50 Series Sunday Million, starting at a mere $2.20. $5.50 and $11 buy-in satellites are also available, meaning this could be your best chance of playing in the Sunday Million!

This Event Guarantees $500K for a $55 Buy-in at PokerStars

What is the 50/50 Series?

The concept of the 50/50 Series is a simple one. The schedule has 50 events on it and each only costs $50 to buy into, unless you secure your seat from one of the cut-price satellites.

The 50/50 Series runs from January 31 and concludes on February 7. It guarantees to payout at least $6.2 million across those 50 events.

Two events have $1 million guarantees on them: this weekend’s Sunday Million SE, and the 46th event on the schedule, the 50/50 Series Main Event on February 7.

Several different formats and variants adorn the 50/50 Series schedule. You can showcase your skills in standard no limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha, 8-Game, HORSE, PKO, special edition Bounty Builders, and even Zoom makes an appearance.
