The third edition of the PokerStars MicroMillions festival is in full swing right now and although it is early days, it is safe to assume that the $5,000,000 in guaranteed prize pool is going to be well and truly smashed.
The players have once again turned out in their droves in an attempt to turn a tiny buy-in into a bankroll of epic proportions. At time of writing, the most money won by a player is a staggering $23,686.63 that is now in the account of R.I.PERRA. The reason it is staggering is because R.I.PERRA won this huge amount of money in a tournament that cost just $2.50 to enter!
Here is a run down of some of the MicroMillions III statistics so far:
Most cashes by a player – palo1 with 11 cashes
Money won by country – Russia with $348,457.17
Cashes by country – Russia with 10,051 in the money finishes
Final tables by country – Russia with 39 final table appearances
Entrants per country – Russia with 82,209 entrants so far
Events won by country – Russia with five titles
Although Russia is running away with the overall leader board, Australians have put in some impressive results and their figures make great reading. So far 9,142 Australian players have bought into the MicroMillions III events, and of those 1,081 of them have ended their tournaments in the money places. There have been five Australian final tablists and three Australian champions! In total $44,486.78 has been won by players from Australia and with over 60 more events left to run they are on course to crack the $100,000 barrier.
The MicroMillions III continues to see scores of players turn out for each event and is helping transform the poker careers of those who win big.
