The MicroMillions is back! If you're new to it then let us explain. It is the festival for low stakes players with big dreams and it starts tomorrow. Expect small entry fees, 'micro' you could say, but some enormous prize pools. You really can turn a few dollars into thousands while playing some great structured tournaments. Find out more by reading the official MicroMillions website.
There is an amazing spread of events and structures with $5 million guaranteed across 100 tournaments, which run around the clock over the next 11 days (14-24 November). Buy-ins start for as little as $0.11 with the action culminating in the $22 Main Event, a tournament with a $1,000,000 guarantee! Last time round Lithuanian player stygher won it to pocket an incredible $160,726.14, which you can read about here.
The PokerStars Blog will be covering the entire festival from start to finish with final table tournament reports of each and every tournament. We'll be summarising the day's action and keeping an eye on the Player of the Series battle. First prize is a pretty amazing half-a-year freeroll into the Sunday Million, which could prove to be very lucrative. There are free Sunday Million tickets for the top 100 players so it's definitely worth keeping an eye on your points.
