PokerStars Megastack XL 2019, May

€100,000 Guaranteed Main Event
For €350 Buy In.

Bringing back Pure Poker
We feel players are tired of lots of flights, lots of re-entries and very little play. We want to bring back a purer form of the game - more play and more skill! Therefor, the PokerStars Megastack XL has extended the Day 1's to a 40min clock and only allows a single re-entry in the main Event (max two entries total)



The main event features a €550 buy in and boasts three Day 1 flights

Day 1A  - Friday 3rd May, 16:00

Day 1B - Saturday 4th May, 13:00

Day 1C - Saturday 4th May, 20:00

Day 2 - Sunday 5th may, 12:00
