MicroMillions III Day 4 review: Making massive bankrolls the micro way
If you're yet to fully digest the fact that the MicroMillions allows you to parlay a small buy-in up to an annual salary then look no further than Event #34. Brazilian MicroMillions player pabritz turned an $11 buy-in into $32,807.05, which is exactly $145.05 more than the average Canadian has in disposable income each year (thank you, Wikipedia).
The MicroMillions III is just over a third of its way through its 100 events and has already racked up close to $3,000,000 in prize pools. It could be the kick-start to many poker careers. The reports below might include the first mention of a future Red Spade or EPT winner. You just never know.
Don't forget that there's still plenty of time left to grind some leader board points and take a shot at the champions' trophy.
