Buy-ins for the Million Dollar weekend tournaments range from $10 to $1,000 and the good news is you don’t have to wait until April 30th to get involved in the Million Dollar Weekend. A $50 Phase tournament, with a Phase 1 stage, leading into April 30th’s Phase II will run throughout April starting April 5th.

The Million Dollar Weekend consists of ten tournaments in shared liquidity (SL) and nine tournaments for PA players.  The highlight in both is undoubtedly the $200 buy-in Million Dollar Sunday Special, which carries a $500,000 guarantee (SL) and $250,000 guarantee (PA). As you’d expect that tournament is in a prime-time slot, with shuffle up and deal at 17:00 ET.

At the other end of the scale $10 will buy you a seat in the Million Dollar Sunday Monster, which starts at 16:35 ET, and carries prize pools of $100,000 (SL) and $20,000 (PA).
