The Sunday Briefing: "Stygher" Wins Largest MicroMillions Main Event Ever at PokerStars

Posted 17 days 22 hours ago by Brett Collson

PokerStars smashed another record on Sunday. The world's leading online poker room closed out the fifth edition of its MicroMillions Series with the $22 Main Event, and 59,213 runners created the largest prize pool in the history of the series. A total of $1,184,260 was handed out to the top 7,920 finishers, and more than $160,000 went to the eventual winner "stygher," who won the tournament outright after electing not to make a deal at the final table.

The MicroMillions V Player of the Series Leader Board winner was Russia's "JustProSkill" who racked up 460 points from 31 cashes, which included two final tables. He received a $5,200 2013 WCOOP Main Event ticket for his efforts. Second to 10th place on the leader board got $1,050 WCOOP tickets, and 11th-50th received $215 WCOOP tickets.

In addition to the MicroMillions Main Event, both PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker ran their usual slate of Sunday Majors this week. Here's a look at the results:
