      Increased guarantees and $700,000 in added value
      PokerStars is on the verge of reaching its 800 millionth tournament and as such is boosting its guarantees and adding $700,000 in prizes between October 13-20.

      This is a huge milestone, and just like their billionth hand promotion, the countdown is going to be very profitable for some players.

      The Carnival of Tournaments is seven days of added value for tournament players, which includes:


      800 millionth tournament
      The 800 millionth tournament on October 20 at 13:00 ET. It has a $109 buy-in, $1 million guarantee and $100,000 in added prizes given to random tables in the first two hours. Satellites are already underway at PokerStars.

      For the first two hours of Tourney Number 800 Million, PokerStars will pause the action every 10 minutes to reward prizes to five randomly chosen tables . Up to 45 players will win a prize each time, with up to 540 players rewarded throughout the tournament.

      Prizes will be issued as follows:




      Over $2 million in increased guarantees
      Tournament guarantees will increase by 50% between October 14-18, 100% on October 19 and 200% on October 20.

      BIG: From Monday, October 14-Friday, October 18, The Daily Big tournaments will award bubble prizes and guarantees will be increased by 50%
      BIGGER: On Saturday, October 19, The Daily Big tournaments will be renamed ‘Bigger’ and have their guarantees doubled, plus award bubble prizes
      BIGGEST: On Sunday, October 20, The Daily Big tournaments will be renamed ‘Biggest’ and have their guaranteed prize pools tripled.

      There will also be bubble prizes awarded to players who just miss the money, which is a free ticket to the same tournament they just bubbled (On another night, not a re-entry).


      Golden Sit & Go's
      Golden Sit & Go's will return with $500,000 in cash rewards. Selected Sit & Go prize pools will be randomly doubled, tripled or quintupled.

      Golden Sit & Go’s will be selected at random and receive either a Big, Bigger or Biggest prize, which could be up to FIVE times the normal buy-in and prize pool amount.

      BIG: You win 2x your Sit & Go buy-in and the total prize pool is doubled
      BIGGER: You win 3x your Sit & Go buy-in and the total prize pool is tripled
      BIGGEST: You win 5x your Sit & Go buy-in and the total prize pool is multiplied by five
