The latest small stakes extravaganza from PokerStars, the MicroMillions, came to a conclusion last night and saw British player ‘RainmanRJA’ emerge victorious in the $22 buy-in main event.
After grinding his way past 63,237 players, ‘RainmanRJA’ found himself cutting a deal with Russia's 'olimpiada980' after they'd conspired to oust Germany's 'BMGyV' in third place.With the prize pool split and each player agreeing to take just under $70,000, the final battle began as both looked to secure the title and the $10,000 set aside for the eventual winner.The rapport between the two players that had seen them strike a deal was soon forgotten as the chips began to fly and 'RainmanRJA' gradually gained the upper-hand. Within a few hands there was no way back for 'olimpiada980' and 'RainmanRJA' secured the last of his opponent's stack and was able to bask in the glory of his first MicroMillions title and a $78,802 top prize.Following the conclusion of the final MicroMillions event, the Player of the Series title was handed to Russia's 'Bobrovaflya'. After racking up 505 points throughout the series, the dedicated grinder finished well clear of Thailand's 'Deegie' on 420 points and 'hel10s' holding 410 points to scoop six months' worth of Sunday Millions tickets.MicroMillions Main Event Final Standings:1. ‘RainmanRJA’ - $78,8022. ‘olimpiada980’ - $69,4803. ‘BMGyV’ - $54,9024. ‘stefanfol1’ - $43,9115. ‘Kaeresen’ - $32,9336. ‘Castlbek’ - $21,9557. ‘Antzzzap’ - $15,6708. ‘Tomthelong’ - $10,9779. ‘Albiko’ - $8,220
