This coming Sunday – 11th December – Poker News Report is adding one free seat for the PokerStars 10th Anniversary $10m Guaranteed Sunday Million event to the special PokerNewsReport 10th Anniv Satellite tournament.
The seat is in addition to the regular cash prize for winning the Poker News Report tournament, and will enable one lucky reader to take their seat in what promises to be the most valuable online poker tournament of the year.
Will More Records Be Broken?
“$10M” may well be more than a bumper field of online poker players contesting a $10 million prize pool (and $2 million guaranteed to the winner). With the number of early registrations already exceeding 2,300, and a one thousand seat mega satellite still to take place, “$10M” could set a new record for the highest individual prize every won in an online poker tournament – currently held by Tyson “Potterpoker” Marks for his victory in the 2010 WCOOP Main Event.
Black Friday? What Black Friday?
With a $1million buy-in event scheduled for next year´s WSOP, records being broken at the WPT Prague and a new PokerStars world record for player participation in an online poker tournament, it seems that Black Friday has not had the “doom and gloom” effect on online poker that many feared it might have. PokerStars have already started the countdown to their 100 Billionth hand being dealt, and are in the midst of qualifiers for the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) – a 10 day jamboree of 41 live poker events to take place in the Bahamas.
