PokerGO introduced the format in January of this year, and this is the second edition. The rough idea is the same, though Poker GO has adjusted the schedule a bit.

The January edition started with a $1,000 buy-in event and doubled the buy-ins for each subsequent event. Everyone who cashes an event gets part of their prize as a ticket to the next event.

There are two tournaments at each of the first three levels. There are two $460 buy-in events, two $900 buy-in events, and two $1,640 buy-in events. From there, the remaining 6 events will double up to a $52,000 buy-in finale.

Anderson topped the field of 93 entrants to take home $6,702 and a ticket to the $1,640 step in this Stairway to Millions.
