On Sunday we saw the very last of the PokerStars MicroMillions events, with the Main Event being the 100th of the series was played out over 11 solid days. The third series of the MicroMillions offered prize pool guarantees of $5,000,000 in total and broke records never been seen before with the MicroMillions.
In total there were 1,308,994 players that took part, which made broke the record for being the most played poker series of all time. That created payouts which totaled $8,276,083.13 which was closing in on being double the original guarantee.
With such success it really is no wonder that this event has already been staged three times. They offer regular stakes players the chance to experience top level online tournament action, which offer excellent valued awards for the players that play well enough to reach the pay structures.
When you consider the odds of winning just one of these events that regularly attract more than 6,000 players, any player that manages to win two in a lifetime is more than just lucky. There have been two such players to pull off the remarkable achievement, “Alfons777999” and “ADP1985” who both took down events in this series to add to previous victories during the first two series.
Additionally, PokerStars Team Pro Marvin Horecki, though not quite able to take two events, has managed to win the player of the series in the last two series. His performance in this series he managed to cash in an amazing 34 of the events, winning one of them.
That is a magnificent show of complete poker skill coupled with the endurance and patience not seen at any level before. As you can see from the leaderboard below, he didn’t only just nick it, he absolutely destroyed everyone else.
His reward for finishing top is a package to go to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in 2013 as well as a gleaming trophy to put on his mantle piece. The remaining players in the list all win a ticket into the TCOOP Main Event worth $700.
