HighStakes Announce €200k GTD Big Sunday February Edition

The success of the HighStakes Big Sunday last week has prompted the site to double the guarantees for the next edition – the February 2nd running of the one-day special now boasting €200,000 in guaranteed prizepools across 30 tournaments…

Last week’s festival saw players battle for €40k above the €100k GTD, with WSOP bracelet holder Joseph 'subiime' Cheong taking down his second Main Event in a row.

The 24 events also witnessed used2bcool win three times throughout the all-day Sunday session, thereby scooping a €10k Triple Crown bonus of tournament buy-ins.

Bryan 'BOOMSwitch' Paris will be another of the big names looking for more success, the TwitchTV streamer the second player to hit the $10million milestone in online poker.

Paris was among 1400 unique entries last time out, taking down the €109 buy-in Big Bounty MID and adding 2nd, 3rd and 5th-place finishes, after winning €4300 of Big Sunday buy-ins for his runner-up spot in the King of HighStakes leaderboard race late last year.

The February edition will see 30 events on the schedule, a half dozen more than last time, and the buy-ins will range from freerolls up to the €1000 buy-in Main Event Super High Roller, Cheong again likely to put in an appearance following his previous victories.

HighStakes expects a similar number of qualifiers to win their way to the Big Sunday events, some 80% of last week’s players making their way via online satellites and Tournament leaderboards.

Satellites for the February 2nd Big Sunday have already started, with the full schedule available in the lobby here.
