Pokerstars, the world's biggest poker site, announced this Friday that they will be hosting a "Carnival of Tournaments", which is being hosted in order to celebrate that they have hosted 900 million tournaments overall in the site. The Carnival of Tournaments will run for almost two weeks - 14-27th of April - and has more than $2 million in boosted guarantees, special tournaments and $700,000 in give-aways.
The first Carnival of Tournaments were hosted by Pokerstars in October of 2013, where the site celebrated tournament number 800 million. At that time the celebrations lasted a week and didn't have the same volume in prizes as this year's version will have.
This time there will be an entire week of boosted guarantees in the daily tournaments as well as golden sit n goes, where players will win extra prizes if they are so lucky to enter in one. But the crown of the festival is the 900th million tournament itself, which will be a $109 buy-in, $1,000,000 guaranteed tournament where Pokerstars also will be giving out $100,000 away randomly at the tables the first 2 hours and 20 minutes.
The 900th million tournament on Pokerstars will take place Sunday 27th of April at 13:00 CET and will have late registration for three hours for those who cannot make it on time. The tournament can be found in the special events tab in the Pokerstars software and can be registered for already now.
