MicroMillions II: Day 8 round-up, close to $5m won so far

micromillions-thumb-blog.pngClose to five million dollars has so far been won in this MicroMillions II series. It's a phenomenal amount given there's only been a handful of tournaments which have had a buy-in larger than $5! Coming into the final third of the 11-day schedule we're approaching the jewel in the MicroMillions crown, one which is worth gunning for whatever stakes you play. The $22 main event takes place this Sunday, starting at 14.30 ET, and guarantees its winner scoops upwards of $150,000. Can you afford to not take a shot at that?

Supernova fabio_bruxo is still at the top of the MicroMillions Leader Board and has slightly extended his lead over dunkmeister2 in the race to land the PCA package, which includes a $10,000 buy-in to the main event.

There are still plenty of bankroll boosters to be played and you can join the likes of Chalkyman who won $5,029.44 by taking down Event #65, $4.40 NL Hold'em 6-max. The Brit is just one title holder to take a chunk out of the $4,805,484.48 that has been won in this micro-limits online festival of poker.
