PokerStars Winter Series

From everyone at PokerStars Blog, we hope you have a great time over the holidays. But what’s on if you fancy playing a bit of online poker?

The PokerStars Winter Series is on hand for all of your action requirements, with multiple events every day and big prizes to be won.

Here, we’ve picked out some of the best Winter Series events across the holiday period that you won’t want to miss.

It’s just like the Sunday Million you know and love, only with double the prize pool! On January 2, the milly is offering an old-school $215 buy-in with a massive $2M guaranteed in the prize pool. Plus there are boosted versions of the Mini Milly and Sunday High Roller running alongside it.

Guarantees: $1M, $1.5M, $2M
Date: Jan 9 13:05 ET (18:05 WET)
