MicroMillions II: Satellites are here!
You might not know it yet. It may not have appeared on your screen when you logged in to PokerStars this morning. You wouldn't know it unless you clicked into the the tournament lobby and saw the MicroMillions tab. If you clicked that tab and looked in the satellites section, you would see it: the very first satellites for the PokerStars MicroMillions II are here.
A little more than an hour ago, the first MicroMillions qualifiers kicked off. Now, they'll be running non-stop for most of the next month as PokerStars runs its second MicroMillions series.
If you're just tuning in, the MicroMillions is the series for the rest of us: people without huge bankrolls who want to play a big time tournament series with good structures for big money.
MicroMillions II runs from July 12 through July 22 with millions of dollars on the the line. The main event (which costs on $22 to enter) guarantees a $1 million prize pool and a minimum $150,000 first prize.
The first MicroMillions series ran back in March. That's when Zabaleta1 cut a deal and won $140,000 in the main event. Now, it's time to do it all over again
To register for satellites or directly into the events, visit the PokerStars lobby and click on the TOURNAMENTS - MICROMILLIONS tabs.
Just like last time, the PokerStars Blog is assembling a big crew of reporters to cover every event of the MicroMillions. Keep it here in the coming days for full information on Player of the Series details. In the meantime, go win a satellite or two and get in to the events even cheaper.
