HighStakes BIG Sunday Report

Blog - 18 Aug 2021

Last weekend’s Special Sunday on HighStakes saw €166,762 paid out across 24 tournaments, the numbers released this week showing that more than half that total came from the site’s freerolls and TLB’s

The site’s Jack of Highstakes promo featured 450 freerolls in the lead-up to the Special Sunday schedule, and some 77,400 players took advantage of the free tournaments.

Adding in the King of HighStakes non-freeroll version of the qualifiers and leaderboard winners, that amounted to €95,000 of buy-ins – with another €40k of direct satellite entrants.

For those who like their stats, that meant only €31,762 of direct buy-ins to the big Sunday funday, which saw 1124 entries overall.

That excellent response from players has seen HighStakes confirm another running – October 6th the date for the next Special Sunday and all of September for those looking to qualify again via the freerolls and TLB’s.


Last weekend’s action was also noteworthy, HighStakes ambassador Joseph Cheong on fire all day, taking down the €25k Sunday 500 for a sweet €5250.

Cheong, fresh from his maiden WSOP gold bracelet in Vegas last month had already scooped the Sunday 215 Opener title for €3840 and then threw in a 3rd place in the Sunday 1000 worth €4914.

It was far from a two-horse race across the day’s 24 tournaments, though, the likes of Blanka69 and BOOMSwitch and drunkenBR impressing with victories and deep runs.
