By RTR Dennis
Most couples celebrate their anniversary by eating at an overpriced restaurant and forcing themselves to see a movie that they’d rather wait for on DVD. This being said, PokerStars must be the ultimate romantic because their anniversary celebration consists of a $7,000,000 Guaranteed tournament on March 3rd, 2013.
This tourney is being held to commemorate PokerStars’ seven-year love affair with the Sunday Million – the online poker industry’s largest weekly event. The winner of the 7th Anniversary $7 Million event is guaranteed a $1 million prize, and there’ll be plenty of other huge payouts as well.
If you’re interesting in chasing the $1 million top prize, you can either pay a $215 direct buy-in or try winning a seat through satellites that are currently running at Stars.
