We’ve seen eleven days of hot poker action on the virtual felts οφ PokerStars with over $8 million running through the books and into the pockets of a host of winners from 100 events of the MicroMillions. Τhe final tournament, the big one we have all been waiting for, came out running with a $1 million guarantee in the prize pool.

It was just $22.00 to get the money in for a potential six figure reward for those that could run deep and make it to the final table. It is the monster of all low stakes tournaments to polish just shy of two weeks’ worth of high paying low buy-in tournaments, a feature that has made the MicroMillions famous in the virtual world of cash poker, not to mention the fact that this prestigious event is backed up by the largest online poker room in the world – PokerStars.

There were 65,397 players in the mix as the late registrations period closed the wires to any more entrants leaving the prize pool with another $307,940, on top of the guaranteed $1 million with 8,505 bubbled spots getting a taste of that momentous figure. By this time it was confirmed that the top three would all be signing off with incredible ROIs with six figures displayed for each of them. The next four places down were sure to take at least five figures, while the remainder of the final table would be at the very least contemplating over $1,000 back.

Liv Boeree, Jake Cody and 13 other PokerStars RedSpades were in and around the action, but only 3 out of the 15 made it through the bubble with Andre Coimbra turning out with the best performance grinding deep into 1,674th place.

In the end it was the Brazilian Clovis “TheManM” Vulczak, who took the honours, as part of a threeplayer deal on the money. Still for a $22.00 buy-in, the 48-year-old was well above normal profit margins with a $126,000 return on investment. Vulczak is from Blumenau, which is a city in Santa Catarina. The German influence on this particular area of Brazil has rubbed off as Vluczak – a businessman, husband, and father of four children – earned victory playing with ingenuity that helped him go as deep into the tournament as the German subs in the war.

It was the perfect end to a another brilliant MicroMillions with the main event’s record number of entrants confirming the popularity of one PokerStars best online events out there, designed for low and micro stakes players. Overall, the MicroMillions attracted 1,420,306 entrants and there was $8,823,501 given away into the prize pools by PokerStars.
