The Pennsylvania 1st Anniversary Series will run for one week from November 8 to November 16, with over $1 million guaranteed across 35 events.
The top events in the schedule are a $100 Main Event featuring a $200k guaranteed prize, and a $20 Mini Main Event coming with $25k in guarantees. Both tournaments are set to kick off on November 15, the penultimate and hottest day of the series.
“We’re very excited to bring to you the first ‘Anniversary Series‘,” PokerStars explained in a note. “It’s been a full year since the first-ever real money hand was played during the soft launch of PS Pennsylvania. ‘JeremyBearimy’ scooped that first pot; $3.82 in a $0.01/0.02 cash game,” the note continues. “We remember it like it was yesterday”

With the launch of the first Anniversary Series, PokerStars plans to celebrate its first year of operations in Pennsylvania and consolidate its market leadership at the same time.
The PA arm of the largest of all online poker enjoyed a competition-free year in Pennsylvania, being the only operator to offer real money games in the Keystone state.
