As the month of July is coming to a close, PokerStars amazing Ã¢â‚¬Å“2X PromoÃ¢â‚¬Â is also reaching its end. Members of the online poker room have experienced some amazing benefits throughout the month of July, and yesterdayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Sunday Warm-Up revealed yet another, doubling the usual $500k GP to a massive $1 million. It was as if PokerStars held two Sunday Million tournaments in a single day!
As many of you may remember, just a few weeks ago, PokerStars kicked off its 2X Promo in July, hosting 2X Sunday Million on the 13th that resulted in a $2 million guaranteed tournament and record attendance of more than 14,000 players. Those incredible numbers further increased the overall prize pool to nearly $3 million ($2,836,200), as Ã¢â‚¬Å“TimDawg888Ã¢â‚¬Â came away with the 1st place prize just shy of $300k.
To end the monthÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s extremely rewarding promotion, the PokerStars 2X Promo struck once more during the lucrative Sunday tournament line-up, doubling the $500k GP Sunday Warm-Up to $1,000,000. A field of 4,050 players boosted the purse even further to $1,123,400.
In the end, it was Ã¢â‚¬Å“richlizardÃ¢â‚¬Â who came away with the 1st place prize of $144,919 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the highest top prize ever produced from the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ShowM4nÃ¢â‚¬Â was defeated in final table, heads-up action to earn the 2nd place prize of $101,106, while Ã¢â‚¬Å“LION8HARTÃ¢â‚¬Â came away with $67,404 for 3rd.
Had PokerStars announced the 2X Sunday Warm-Up a few days earlier, those numbers would likely have doubled to parallel the entries of the yesterdayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Sunday Million, which topped 8,000. But such is the nature of the 2X Promo, to surprise their members with near-sudden (and substantial) generosity.
With only 3 days left in July, it is likely PokerStars has something else amazing up its sleeve to reward members of the online poker room before the 2X Promo expires. All we can do now is wait to see what PokerStars has in store for us nextÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
