PokerStars weekend review (11-26-12)
It's been another busy weekend at PokerStars; the MicroMillions III wrapping up with a guarantee-busting $1,221,440 main event, Team PokerStars Pro Marcin Horecki swiping a second MicroMillions leader board title*, Road to 100 Billion Milestones popping to pay players all over the place, and all the usual Sunday majors, of course.
*The back-office boffins are just confirming the numbers now.
Another one in the bag for Horecki?
The actionWe've been speeding past The Road to 100 Billion Milestones once again with a 90 Billion Mega Milestone coming up (which started hitting on Friday). The biggest winner so far has been KingOfThe$ea who got it in three-ways with A♦A♥3♥3♣ in a $1/$2 PLO game. Not only did KingOfThe$ea win the $1,159.34 pot but they also claimed a Milestone-tastic $4,918 bonus. Winning that pot was worth more than 3,000 big blinds! Check out all the winners so far here.
