Why Play The Sunday Million?
The Sunday Million is so popular for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that it awards a minimum of $160K (often more) to the winner. Life-changing money aside, players flock to The Million because of the extremely soft field brought on by the thousands of satellites. Throughout the week, many recreational players and hundreds of donkeys satellite into The Million, which in most cases is well above their bankroll.
Although it's still called 'The Sunday Million' because of its original guarantee and phonetic efficiency, PokerStars currently guarantees a prize pool of $1.5M for the event and consistently draws over 8,000 players each week. The field-size seemingly grows larger every week, so who knows, maybe it'll one day become 'The Sunday Billion'.
