- The Big 20 Finale features a $55 buy-in and $5 million in guarantees
- The tournament is set to smash the record for the biggest $55 tournament ever held
- There are plenty of options for players to qualify for the tournament
PokerStars is currently hosting a series of tournaments and promotions to celebrate its 20th year in the industry.
One huge event taking place at the site as part of its anniversary celebrations is “The Big 20 Finale” which will give away a whopping $5 million in guaranteed prizes for a buy-in of only $55, making it the biggest tournament of its kind.
The Big 20 Finale takes place on December 5, and you can qualify for this massive tournament in different ways.
How to Enter the Big 20 Finale
PokerStars has set the buy-in low enough at $55 to give all players the chance to take a shot at the massive $5 million prize pool, but those looking to qualify for the event for much cheaper can do so through plenty of satellites running at the site, with other channels also giving away tournament tickets.
Players may take part in phased satellites with buy-in starting at just $0.55 running daily on PokerStars. Phase 2 tournaments take place every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The site is also hosting regular daily satellites with entry fees of $2.20, $5.50, and $11. These tournaments run with regular, turbo, and hyper-turbo blind structures.
Freeroll tournaments are also available, which award tickets to the $5.50 Mega Sat.
Apart from that, players may also win their tickets into the Big Finale through the Road to $5M tournaments, with buy-ins ranging from $2.20 to $11. Each tournament awards dozens of tickets and is played in progressive knockout format.
PokerStars is also hosting a Women’s Sunday event on November 28, and the top 20 finishers will be awarded tickets worth $1,100.
Last but not the least, there’s the Ticket Machine promotion where players can win seats for free by playing in $0.50 buy-in Spin & Go games exclusively designed for PokerStars’ 20th-anniversary celebration.
The Big 20 Finale needs to attract at least 100,000 entries to hit its $5 million guarantee and it remains unclear whether it can actually draw such a massive field. One thing’s certain though, the tournament is poised to create a new record for the biggest $55 tournament ever held in poker history.
