HighStakes Special Sunday Sees €175,000 Guaranteed

HighStakes huge Special Sunday is on the horizon and the tournament lobbies are already filling up – a massive €175,000 GTD across the days tournaments attracting plenty of satellite and freeroll players looking for a huge score…

Kicking off at noon on Sunday 18th August, the schedule has buy-ins running from just €5 all the way up to €5000, with 23 tournaments in all, to provide every bankroll with a chance to take part – and so far 75% of players entered are qualifiers from freerolls and tlb's.

The big Sunday on HighStakes is just the latest in the site’s offerings, and rumour has it there will be another €250,000 on its way in promos later in the year.

HighStakes has become synonymous with massive PLO and NLHE cash games over the past year or so, with this past week seeing completeirony holding court on the €500/1000 tables.

Back in the world of MTT’s, and HighStakes have their tournament version of the nosebleeds on the schedule – the Special Sunday 5000 – with, as you guessed it, a €5000 buy-in.

The €50k guarantee is likely to be smashed in the chase for the five-figure payouts, and the likes of Joseph subiime Cheong, fresh from a WSOP bracelet out in Vegas, and Marc PlayinWitDreams Kennedy, likely to make an appearance.

That dangerous duo are already registered for the Sunday 500, a €500 buy-in with a €25,000 guarantee, entry available also via freeroll satellites and leaderboard promotions.

It’s far from being only nosebleeds on the 18th, the Special Sunday starting with the Sunday Freeze 5, a mere €5 buy-in and €500 guaranteed with a 5000 chip starting stack, a freezeout tournament as the name suggests.

That’s followed by a slew of Re-buys, Turbos and Bounty KO tournaments, again across a range of buy-ins, and so far about 20% of the runners are satellite winners.
