2023 PokerStars Midstakes Madness – Key Details

The 2023 Midstakes Madness runs from August 6-13 on PokerStars, featuring a total of 61 events, with buy-ins ranging from $11 to $109. Popular real money poker tournaments from previous editions are making a comeback, with PokerStars also boosting the guarantees on multiple events. That effort has resulted in a huge $5,855,000 guaranteed prize pool which players shouldn’t miss!

The festival opens on August 6 with some key events, such as the $109 Sunday Million [8-Max, Progressive KO] which comes with a $1,000,000 guarantee.

As usual, the main highlight of the festival is the Main Event. The tournament is a special edition of the Sunday Million and has a buy-in of $109, with $1 million in guaranteed prize money up for grabs. The final action of the Sunday Million PKO Midstakes Madness Main Event is scheduled for August 13.

The schedule also includes a mini Main Event, the Sunday Storm Mini Main Event, which has a more affordable entry fee of $11 but offers $100,000 in guarantees. It takes place on August 13. Other highlights include the $109 Thursday Thrill Special Edition (August 10), the $22 Mini Battle Royale Special Edition (August 9) and the $55 Mini Bounty Builder High Roller Special Edition (August 13).

Players may secure a seat into the Main Event through PokerStars’ new Power Path promo. Those with Bronze Passes are eligible to enter any $109 buy-in event on the schedule, including the Main Event. Additionally, players with a Step 4 Power Path ticket may also use it to take part in any Sunday Million event (there are two special-edition Sunday Million events to choose from during Midstakes Madness).
