Sunday is traditionally the busiest day of the week for online poker tournament grinders, a fact that is most certainly true if you are one of the thousands of players who frequent 888poker Ontario. While 888poker Ontario has some amazing tournaments running around the clock, the online poker room really stands out on a Sunday when some huge events shuffle up and deal between 1:00 pm and 7:45 pm
the Sunday Big Shot tournaments are waiting for you to buy into or win your seat via one of the many satellites taking place throughout the week. C$1,000 Sunday Big Shot 16.5 is the event that kicks off a Super Sunday at 888poker, a C$16.50 buy-in affair with C$1,000 guarantee to be won.
Other Sunday Big Shot tournaments come with buy-ins of C$11, C$22, C$33, and C$55, with guaranteed prize pools worth up to C$5,000.

There are a pair of Sunday tournaments that stand out from the crowd, thanks to their impressive guarantees.
The C$30,000 Sunday Ontario major shuffles up and deals at 5:30 pm Buy in direct for C$109 or win your way in from a few cents. However you get in, you will sit down with 10,000 chips, and play to a 12-minute clock where the blinds start at 30/60/7a. Unlimited rebuys are available for the first three hours, which, incidentally, is when late registration closes. Depending on the number of entrants, first place should be in the region of C$5,800 to C$6,500, which is huge for Ontarian online poker.
Ninety-minutes after the C$30,000 Sunday Ontario Major starts, the C$10,000 Sunday High Roller kicks off at 7:00 pm The High Roller commands a chunky C$525 buy-in, which grants you 10,000 chips. Blinds start at 30/60/7a, and increase every 10 minutes. The last time a $525 High Roller ran, it was part of the XL Autumn series, and saw 39 entrants create a $19,500 prize pool. Perhaps it will be a similar story this weekend?
Of course, there are cut-price satellites feeding into the high roller.
