ONCHAN, Isle of Man -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- PokerStars.eu has announced the schedule for the eighth running of the world’s most popular online poker championship, MicroMillions. It will take place over 11 days from July 17-27, and feature 100 events with $5 million in guaranteed prize money.
The highlight will be the $22 No Limit Hold’em Main Event tournament on the final day of the championship, which has a $1 million guarantee. Incredibly, six of the seven previous Main Event winners have pocketed huge six-figure paydays, with a record first prize of just over $160k – all from just a $22 buy-in.
Portuguese Team PokerStars Pro, João Nunes, is looking forward to playing some of the events. He said: “MicroMillions 8 is undoubtedly the best online poker championship for recreational and low stakes players. The tournaments come thick and fast and the value is unreal. There’s a $2.20 buy-in tourney with a guaranteed prize pool of $150,000 – how can you miss that? Even for higher stakes players, the huge fields and big prizes are a major draw.”
