PokerStars Turbo Series VI Begins April 5

PokerStars Turbo Series VI Begins April 5

It’s probably safe to say that PokerStars is pretty proud of itself. Little more than a week ago, PokerStars celebrated the 14th anniversary of its Sunday Million tournament with a $12 million-guaranteed prize pool. Not only did a stellar turnout surpass that number, the 93,016 entries created a prize pool of $18,603,200.

It was kind of a big deal.

So, what does PokerStars do? It announces an online poker series – the sixth edition of the Turbo Series. And it is set to begin on April 5.

Series Basics

The PokerStars Turbo Series VI will begin on Sunday, April 5, and run through Sunday, April 19. It goes without saying that every event in the series will play with a turbo structure.

Speaking of events, there will be 114 altogether, with something for players of any type of bankroll. The lowest tournament buy-in will be $11, and the highest will be $5,200.

Oh, the series will offer $25 million in prize pool guarantees. That’s kind of a big deal.

Players on the dot-com network will be able to compete. No other markets are included at this time.

Series Highlights

As mentioned, the series will offer 114 events in total. On the first day of action, these options show the kind of variety that will be offered:
