POKERSTARS MICROMILLIONS 6 SET FOR NOVEMBER WITH 100 EVENTS AND $5 MILLION GUARANTEED
ONCHAN, Isle of Man – October 29, 2013 – PokerStars today announced that the world’s most popular online poker series, MicroMillions, will return from November 14-24. The sixth series will have 100 events and $5 million in guaranteed prizes.
The micro-stakes festival has buy-ins ranging from just $0.11 to $22, making it the most accessible and fun tournament series for beginner, recreational and low stakes players alike. Over the past two years the tri-annual series has quickly become the most played poker series ever, with more than one million tournament entries for each festival.
Team PokerStars Pro and two-time MicroMillions Player of the Series, Marcin ‘Goral’ Horecki, said: “MicroMillions is a lot of fun and offers great value. For low stakes players, it’s a chance to win big money at little cost, while for higher stakes players the added Tournament Leader Board prizes make it a worthwhile proposition.”
The series will begin on November 14 with a $0.11+R NL Hold’em [Hyper-Active] tourney and will finish on November 24 with the final ten events, including the $1 million guaranteed No Limit Hold’em Main Event, which features a $22 buy-in and at least $150,000 for first place. For the first time in MicroMillions, there will also be an $8.80 NL Hold’em Progressive Super Knockout event, where the bounty on a player’s head increases during the tournament as they knock people out and win bounties themselves.
