While those who still long for the pre-Black Friday MTT schedule might be disappointed, the players in Pennsylvania who have been waiting to get back on PokerStars since that fateful day 8.5 years ago will be excited to head into battle.
There’s a full tournament schedule to play with buy-ins ranging from $2 to $250 but there are five tournaments worth highlighting.
Things get underway at 4 pm with the $30 buy-in Sunday Warm-Up with a $7,500 guarantee. Levels are eight minutes long and players can re-enter up to twice in the first two hours of play.
An hour later, the Sunday Storm is a Six-Max event and has just a $10 buy-in and a $5,000 guarantee. Players can fire up to six total bullets into this tournament during the 95-minute late registration period.
The highlight of the schedule is the $100 buy-in Sunday Special at 6 PM. The guarantee for the first week is $40,000 and players who bust in the first three hours of play can re-enter up to a maximum of three times.
Players looking for a bigger buy-in can fire away at the $250 Sunday High Roller event at 7 pm. The tournament has a $10,000 guarantee and players can re-enter as many as five times during the 2.5-hour re-entry period.
Lastly, the Sunday Supersonic has a hyper structure, a $50 buy-in, and a $5,000 guarantee. The tournament begins at 10 PM and late registration is only open for 45 minutes during which players can re-enter up to five times.
