MicroMillions 4: Race to $5,200 SCOOP ticket under way
We have just crossed the halfway point of the MicroMillions 4 online festival and the action is really starting to heat up (no little thanks to the $5,200 SCOOP Main Event ticket that goes to teh leader board champ). Every event is busting its guarantee and paying out thousands to the final table, all of whom have got their for just a few dollars (such as Brad 'Brad52286' Panton).
An extra-special PokerStars Blog congratulations goes out to Russian player Alfons777999 who has just won his third MicroMillions title (but the first of this series). That takes some doing. Alfons777999 is currently joint 15th on the MicroMillions 4 leader board with 185 points. Five other cashes back up his win.
It's another Russian who tops the leader board however. FENOMENICO has racked up an astounding 265 points so far having cashed in 20 of the first 52 events events. There's pressure from a tightly packed leader board - as you can see below. That should be no surprise given the great prizes that pay the top 100 most successful MicroMillions grinders: anything from a $109 SCOOP ticket all the way up to a $5,200 SCOOP Main Event buy-in where you can win some seriously big money.
