PokerStars’ MicroMillions Main Event came to a hugely profitable conclusion for “Ges26” earlier today after they outlasted 68,081 players.
The $22 tournament had $1 million on offer and in typical fashion that prizepool was exceeded. Indeed, when registration finally closed the money waiting to be divided up was $1,361,620, which meant that the winner would walk away with $167,541.As the masses dispersed and the winner’s prize drew ever closer it was Belgium’s “sublimoviccc” who narrowly missed out on a final table appearance. Hitting the rail in 10th place allowed the surviving players to bank at least $5,596 and be in with a chance of entering the MicroMillions Hall of Fame. As nine players became five a deal was struck, dividing the prizepool in a flatter way than the advertised structure. A minimum payout of $72,506 allowed the UK’s “textbookstu” to end his session and reflect on an excellent performance. A trio of eliminations left “appst08” and “Ges26” vying for the title and a mandatory $20,000 still up for grabs. Having already secured $120,468 it was Belarus’s “Ges26” that used his chip lead to run away with the tournament and scoop the largest haul of this year’s successful fourth MicroMillions series.
