Sunday Majors 5/15: $1 Million Guarantee on Full Tilt Garners $1.5M Prize Pool

written by: Jennifer under Poker Comments: Comments Off

What’s left of the Sunday majors is an ever-changing scene. Two of the big PokerStars tournaments – Bigger $55 and Sunday Storm – have lost significant players in the last two weeks, possibly due to concurrently running SCOOP events, though the Sunday 500 actually gained player this week. And the big offering on Full Tilt Poker each Sunday changes of its own volition, as last week it was the $750K Guarantee with a $200 buy-in, and this week it was the $1 Million Guarantee with a $600 buy-in. Ever-changing for certain.

No matter, the online poker world must be glad to see any tournaments on the “majors” list after losing U.S. customers one month ago. As Americans continue to begrudge the developments of Black Friday, the rest of the world can count on some online poker in their world.
