PokerStars Prepares Next High Rollers Online Series
High-stakes poker players have quite a few options in the live tournament scene these days, with high roller events now a standard part of most series and even several series dedicated just to high buy-in tournaments. And online, they have the PokerStars High Rollers.
The latest installment of this is now set to kick off in little more than two weeks.
That means it’s time to organize those buy-ins, sell those pieces, and get ready for 19 tournaments over eight days with $6 million in guarantees beginning on March 23.
The PokerStars High Roller Series will kick off on March 23 and run through March 30. Those eight days will offer 19 tournaments, with a lot of No Limit Hold’em but also some Pot Limit Omaha. And there will be $6 million in total guarantees.

Buy-ins will start at $215 and run up to $10,300. And the individual guarantees range from $100K to $1.5 million for the Main Event.
The previous High Rollers series ran in December, offering 27 events and $11 million in guarantees. It ran only 26 of those tournaments, and while many surpassed their guarantees, there were also overlays in 10 of them. It seems the organizers decided to trim it all down a bit for the upcoming edition.
