Every week we are following the results of the most popular Sunday online event - the Sunday Million on PokerStars, and this year we have monitored some sad tendency for PokerStars. After buy-in of the tournament was two times decreased (since the end of January), each new Sunday Million started to collect fewer entries than the previous one.
This is evident from the tournament statistics:
For clarity, we depicted the tendency in the form of graphs:
The prize pool of the Sunday Million 2019 tournaments from January 27 to March 10
Number of entries to the Sunday Million from January 27 to March 10, 2019
If to remove the number of re-entries - the situation is even worse…
The number of unique entries to the Sunday Million from January 27 to March 10, 2019
At this pace, the Sunday Million at PokerStars will soon take place with overlays or they will have to return the old buy-in to cover the promised guarantee.
Formerly, in order to beat the guarantee of the Sunday Million PS, it was necessary to collect 5 000 entries, now - not fewer than 10 000.
