"Nolet20" Wins MicroMillions Main

Monday, 27 July 2015

The MicroMillions 2015 Main Event promised big things this year and on Sunday it delivered.

After putting up a $1 million prizepool and a guaranteed $100,000 for the winner, PokerStars was expecting a big turnout for the $22 event and they weren't disappointed.

After watching players ante-up and sit down over the past week, PokerStars eventually closed the registration last night after a late sign-up period. Once the final numbers had been verified a total of 55,524 runners have been counted.

That glut of interest not only pushed the prizepool to an impressive $1,110,480, but ensured the winner would take home almost $111,111. As ever the field was a mix of aspiring pros, seasoned grinders and usual punters, and when the final table rolled around an eclectic mix of nations was represented.

From Germany and Russia to Venezuela to Canada, grinders from around the world were all looking to get their hands on a potentially life changing sum of money.

As the action played out and the field gradually thinned, a clear leader in the form of "Nolet20" emerged. Hailing from Canada, the online grinder managed to clinch the chip lead with just five players let which allowed them to take the lead in the deal making process.

Naturally wanting a larger slice of the pie, "Nolet20" pushed for a favourable split before pushing on and securing the title. Indeed, as the final five became two, "Nolet20" found himself heads-up against "SukaPu" for the title.

Having already secured more than $65,000 each the final confrontation was a friendly back and forth which the Canadian eventually won. With the final pot in his possession and "SukaPu" watching from the sidelines, the virtual confetti rained down on "Nolet20" as he was given the MicroMillions 2015 Main Event trophy and $89,854 for his efforts.
