PokerStars launch their 11th installment of MicroMillions with 100 events spread over 11 days of action and containing $5m in guaranteed prizes.
The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has ended. Sure, we still have the final table of the Main Event due to take place in November. But for now nobody cares. The momentum has been lost, and Daniel Negreanu busted anyway.
Whilst it’s sad to shout ‘Timber!’ on that particular phase in our lives, we have to move on, and what better way to do so than to ignore the wife, lay waste to the kids, and play a shit ton of online poker.
MicroMillions 11 starts tomorrow, and I for one will be shutting everyone out of my life so I can play in it. There will be 100 events with buy-ins ranging from between $0.11 and $22. And unless you live in a retarded nation like the US then everyone can get involved.
PokerStars are offering $5m in guarantees including $1m for the $22 Main Event due to take place on Sun, 26th July, where the winner will walk away with a six figure first prize guaranteed. At the time of writing 1,283 players have already registered to play. It’s going to be as big as JR Ewing’s ridiculous cowboy hat.
The series will contain every conceivable form and format of poker you could imagine. The $11 Sunday Storm contests that fall within this window will both feature $300k guarantees. Screw church. Give the Sunday dinner to the dogs. Play poker goddamit.
MicroMillions 11 will also have the bog standard leaderboard for the die hards. First place will generate free Sunday Million tickets for six months, 2nd – 10th will earn you 5 x Sunday Million tickets, and 11th to 100th will see you banking a solitary Sunday Million ticket.
The reigning leaderboard champion is PsychoPol from Ukraine. He played in 99 events and earned $8,801.97 in prize money. A player called Gamer4ik finished fourth after playing in all 100 of them earning $611.92 in the process.
This is the time that a decent writer would give you the details of all 100 events.
It will take me too long.
