Play small to win big with MicroMillions

Women corner logo.jpgCan a magazine and a soft drink contribute in any way to improving my financial status? How about a latte and a cinnamon roll? These were a few of my impulse purchases in the last week and I have to say that each of them provided a temporary buzz of pleasure, but no staying power. My impulsive indulgences weren't exactly capitalizing future rewards or profits. In poker terminology, none of them provided what you could call a return on investment. That is, unless you want to count the growing pile of magazines in the corner as an investment. Being brutally honest with myself, I have to admit that they didn't help pay the electric bill or buy groceries. But some small expenditures can pay off big if you play your cards right.

Yes, that hurt I know. You can come back now, it's over. What I meant to say was that sometimes with a small investment you can reap huge rewards. PokerStars MicroMillions is a case in point. With a buy-in typically under five dollars, the investment is small (micro even), but the returns can be huge. Take for instance the $2.22+R tournament on Saturday with a guarantee of $150,000. Or if your bankroll is a bit smaller, how about the $1+R with $50,000 up for grabs? Ten events are featured every day through Sunday, July 22, culminating in a $22 Main Event with a $1,000,000 guarantee ($150,000 for first place). There are even satellites for easy qualifying. And you might want to keep this one to yourself . . . FPP satellites are available as well.

The series is winding down and this weekend is your last chance to score that huge ROI. So how about stashing a few dollars away each day to play some great tournaments and possibly get a huge bang for your buck? You can always forgo the sweets and other minor indulgences like me and save enough in one day to cover your costs. Play small, but win big.

Your ROI could be huge, while your waistline stays small.
