Turbo Series Main Events preview: $3 million guaranteed this Sunday

Over the last two weeks the Turbo Series has awarded tens of millions of dollars in prizes. This Sunday sees the culmination of the schedule in the $55 Low and $1,050 High versions of the Main Event.

Two tournaments. Tens of thousands of entrants. Guaranteed prize pools worth a combined $3,000,000.

If last year's versions are anything to go by, the 2019 Main Events are likely to award in excess of $500,000 between their two champions.

Even if you can't afford to drop the full price of either tournament's buy-in, there is great value to be found in the satellites to both running around the clock. (Nine of this year's Turbo Series champions won their seats in satellites, some with buy-ins as low as $1.10.) And those who don't win a title can still spin up a massive return on their initial investment.

Bottom line: Sunday is going to be a big day for somebody. Here's everything you need to know to make that somebody you.
