Summer is almost here. For US poker players, the PokerStars Summer Stacks Festival is even closer — in fact, it begins tomorrow!
The Summer Stacks Festival is in fact three separate festivals, one each happening on the three PokerStars US sites — PokerStars Pennsylvania, PokerStars Michigan, and PokerStars New Jersey.
For all three, the series lasts from June 12-28 with each featuring 100 tournaments, all with buy-ins of $100 or less. All three also feature lots of turbo-style tournaments and shorter formats designed to move things along quickly.
On PokerStars PA and PokerStars MI, guarantees across the festivals add up to at least $1 million. On PokerStars NJ, the guarantees total $528,000.
All three festivals will end with big two-day $100 buy-in no-limit hold’em Main Events starting Sunday, June 27. There the guarantees are $100,000 on both PokerStars PA and PokerStars MI, while on PokerStars NJ the Main Event will have a $50,000 guarantee.
There are lots of freerolls happening on all three sites, too, enabling players to win seats in Summer Stacks Festival events for nothing at all.
These include Depositor Freerolls requiring players to deposit at least $30 using the bonus code “SUMMER21” as well as Second Chance Freerolls for players who bust from events shy of making the cash.
The first events start tomorrow afternoon, Saturday, June 12 at 4 p.m. on PokerStars PA and PokerStars MI, and at 6 p.m. on PokerStars NJ.
