MicroMillions III Day 7 review: Marcin Horecki wins, tops leader board (again)

Team PokerStars Pro Marcin Horecki is fast becoming the face of the MicroMillions. The Polish grinder - and former national skier, no less - has just won Event #62: $4.40 rebuy PL Omaha (six-max) for $3,652 rocketing him into first place on the MicroMillions leader board.

This isn't the first time that Horecki, who plays under the User ID 'Goral', has made a run at the MicroMillions leader board. He was the Player of the Series of MicroMillions I winning himself a bonus PCA package in doing so and looks to have his heart set on claiming a second trophy.

Marcin on to victory

Horecki, who found a tough heads-up opponent in Biiiig P from Canada, beat a field of 1,693 to claim the first Team PokerStars MicroMillions title. That win gave him a 100-point boost up to 315 on the MicroMillions leader board moving him ahead of Artur Lesley by 20 points. There are still plenty more events to play and Horecki is currently trying to rack up some more in Event #63 which is approaching the money now. You can find Horecki by clicking on 'Requests' > 'Find a Team PokerStars Player' on the lobby drop-down menu.

Horecki's achievement somewhat overshadows his Polish PokerStars colleague, Team Online's Grzegorz 'DaWarsaw' Mikielewicz who made a final table in Event #61. Read on for reports from all the events that have played out so far.
