PokerStars’ Sunday Million Becomes PKO on a Permanent Basis. PokerStars’ iconic weekly tournament is getting a big makeover with the Sunday Million becoming a progressive knockout going forward. Sunday is a big day in the online poker world, and for 16 years, the place to be on Sunday has been PokerStars for the Sunday Million . The marquee tournament has grown and changed since its inception, and it is about to undergo another significant change as it permanently becomes a progressive knockout (PKO) tournament.
From its inception back in 2006, the Sunday Million has been a marquee event for PokerStars and was one of the events that helped define Sunday as the biggest day of the week for online poker . While it sometimes runs in a knockout format, the tournament has always returned to its traditional format. That will change on June 12 when the Milly permanently changes to PKO.
There are a few other changes to the blinds, start stack, and players at the table, but the significant change comes with the new bounty format. The operator cites the increasing popularity of the PKO in online poker as a driving force for the new format.
This is far from the first time the tournament has undergone considerable changes. In its 16 years, it has changed time slots and buy-ins, had multiple guarantees, and moved from a freezeout to a single rebuy, to name a few changes.
The Sunday Million even has a history as a PKO tournament, though generally as special editions throughout the year. PokerStars has been leaning more heavily toward the PKO format recently, with 12 of 20 events this year playing the progressive bounty format. Last verified: June 2022
