Biggest Online Poker Tournaments

Online poker tournaments come in all shapes and sizes. Since online poker rooms don't have the overhead of live casinos (dealers, floor space, utilities), they can afford to run micro tournaments, heads up tournaments, shorthanded tournaments, and other wacky variations. This page, however, is going to focus on the biggest online poker tournaments. The tournaments on this list have big buy-ins, big prize pools, and skilled entrants:

The Biggest Poker Tournaments at PokerStars.com - No USA Players

PokerStars is the home to the biggest online poker tournaments, as they offer the best poker software and the best tournament structure. Here is a list of PokerStars' biggest tournaments:

The Super Tuesday ($400,000 Guaranteed, $1,050 buy-in)

The Super Tuesday is a $1,050 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament with a $400,000 guaranteed prize pool. This tournament is held every Tuesday at 19:55 ET. The Super Tuesday is a poker tournament with great value, because the tournament often has an overlay. In fact, only 372 players entered the Super Tuesday last week, which is less than the 400 players needed to reach the $400,000 guarantee. As a result, PokerStars had to kick in free money.

The Wednesday Quarter Million ($250,000 Guaranteed, $320 buy-in)

The Wednesday Quarter Million is a $320 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament with a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool. This tournament is held every Wednesday at 21:00 ET. The Wednesday Quarter Million is another tournament that often sees an overlay. If you don't want to pay the $320 buy-in, make sure to check out the $44 satellites that run every Wednesday.

The Saturday $100,000 ($100,000 Guaranteed, $320 buy-in)

The Saturday $100,000 is a $320 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament with a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool. This tournament is held every Saturday at 13:00 ET. Since the Saturday $100,000 is held earlier in the day, the tournament often has a smaller field, and thus is perfect for a player who would prefer a shorter tournament that won't last all night.

The Sunday Warm Up ($750,00 Guaranteed, $215 buy-in)

The Sunday Warm Up is a $215 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament with a $750,000 guaranteed prize pool. This tournament is held every Sunday at 12:45 ET to help players "warm up" for the Sunday Million. The Sunday Warm Up almost always reaches the $750,000 guarantee.

The Sunday Million ($1,500,000 Guaranteed, $215 buy-in)

The Sunday Million is PokerStars' flagship tournament. It is a $215 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament with a $1.5 million guaranteed prize pool. The Sunday Million runs every Sunday at 16:30 ET. The Sunday Million used to have a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, and when they upped the guarantee they stuck with the same name out of tradition.

You can expect this tournament to have at least 7,500 entrants each week, resulting in a prize pool of at least $1.5 million. We also deemed this to be one of the best value poker tournaments online, because most entrants are satellite qualifiers who are playing above their skill level. The Sunday Million is the biggest weekly poker tournament online.

The Sunday 250 ($250,000 Guaranteed, $530 buy-in)

The Sunday 250 is a $530 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament with a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool. This tournament is held every Sunday at 17:30 ET, and typically is one of the toughest tournaments of the weekend.

The Sunday Second Chance ($250,000 Guaranteed, $215 buy-in)

The Sunday Second Chance is a $215 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament with a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool. This tournament is held every Sunday at 18:30 ET to give players a "second chance" at a big score if they have already busted in the Million.
