MicroMillons 4: Two titles in two days headed to main event weekend

There is running hot, and then there is running crimson-bubbling-don't-touch-this-hot. Moldova's "ruslanmd" is running in the latter fashion and doing so at the perfect time.

If you didn't hear, as we head into MicroMillons 4's final weekend and toward the main event, ruslanmd won two events in two days. He beat out more than 12,000 players in Event 55 and then 10,000 players in event 64. In all, he's cashed nine times so far this series.
