Here's some of the more interesting numbers that caught our attention this week.

Guaranteed prize pool in the 9th Anniversary Sunday Million, which will take place on Sunday, March 15 at 14.30 ET. It was originally scheduled on International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8. IWD is a huge cultural event in many non-English speaking countries with a total population of over 2 billion people, and is often described as the combined equivalent of the US/UK celebrations of “Valentine’s Day” and “Mother’s Day”.  First prize in the Sunday Million will be at least $1 million. Satellites into the $215 buy-in event start from just $1 or 50 FPPs, and are running around the clock.
