The Sunday Majors! Sunday is the biggest day of the week for online poker players and PokerStars is where most of this fanaticism began. PokerStars offers several Sunday-branded events including: Sunday Kickoff, Sunday Warm-Up, Sunday Storm, Sunday Supersonic, and the prestigious Sunday Million.

Why is Sunday the most popular day of the week for poker? Credit the “Sunday Night Blues.” Although it is not an actual medical malady, there's definitely a different vibe to Sunday nights. Poker is the best way to help cure the Sunday Night Blues. A little action, a little fun, a little social activity, a little competition, is a great way to cap off your week.

For amateurs, casual players and hobbyists, Sunday is their last day off before the work week begins, so they won't want to waste a last chance to engage in their hobby, or their favorite leisure activity. So why not play a proper poker tournament? The consistency and reliability of the Sunday Majors is why PokerStars is so popular among the average player worldwide.

For pros, Sundays are their biggest day of their work week. The Sunday Grind is something pros never want to miss. Poker players are a creature of habit. Even if they are on holiday, or playing a live event, or have to be away from their home grind station, they will go at great lengths to find a way to participate in the Sunday Grind, especially the biggest event of the week... the Sunday Million.

Satellites are running around the clock to win tickets to various tournaments on the Sunday Grind.
