After 99 amazing events, the MicroMillions III series came to an end yesterday with the $1 million guaranteed Main Event. PokerStars guaranteed that the winner would get at least $150,000, but that number was broken as 61,072 players entered the tournament and created a $1,221,400 prize pool with the winner set to pocket a massive $165,789.31!
Not less than 7,920 players received a piece of the prize pool and the final three players agreed to a deal (axel397 120k, numeromis $125k & Senter268 $105k) that left $20k, and the title, to play for.
numeromis, who had more than half of the chips in play when play resumed, didn't have the poker gods on his side. After losing several small pots, he was all in pre-flop with KJ against axel397's 59. The board ran out 691053 and axel397 won the 445 million pot with 2 pair. numeromis was left with 45 million after that and found AK a few hands later to get the last four big blinds into the middle and was in good shape for a double up against Senter268's JA. But the 62A2J saw a jack fall on the river to eliminate him in 3rd place.
The tournament came to an end just a few hands after numeromis hit the rail. Both players checked to see the flop 10610. Senter268 bet 8 million and axel397 made it 18 million. Senter268 called. The turn card was the 8 and axel397 bet 56 million. Senter268 pushed his remaining chips to the centre of the table and axel397 made the call.
axel397 (102) could start celebrating straight away since Senter268 had 62 and was drawing dead. The river card was the A and axel397 scooped the pot of about 300 million chips, the title and the $140k first-place prize!

| On the balance of probabilities, the Eastern European players will get their fair share of big wins because of the large numbers of them that play. It will only be a matter of time befiore BRM takes over the world an on the balance of probabilities we will all win the Sunday Million!! (Keep the dream alive!!)|

| the only thing i dont like about Russians is that i've seen and played vs hundreds or thousands of them and most of them are silly bingo players that have no clue whatsoever.. Nothing worse then getting suckout from a Russian that hunts draws and plays any two But thankfully there are some good players among so many fishes that this country has. But we know how big Russia is. And its known worldwide for its crazyness )|

That's for the same reason that damosk gives above. I doubt that, proportionally, there are more Russian bingo players than there are from any other nation. It's just that there are so damn many players from Russia that It may seem like it.

| As expected the prizepool breached the million dollar mark and once the registration process had finally closed a total of 61,702 players were left battling it out for a top prize of $165,789. As the hours ticked by that mark was finally reached and with just three players remaining the inevitable negotiating took place. |

| Really not too bad for an investment of $22.|
I also played this one, but unfortunately busted out just before the people at around 8400th place.
Could have folded me in the money, but tried to do better and lost.

| Two portuguese players in the top 9, how good can that be? I really don't know these nicknames, we also have a lot of online promises and rookies-to-amateurs "giving cards" on the game, and this is just an example of what we are able to to!|

| I agree with all above there are just too many chasing bingo playing russians.....|
And its all Tony G's fault,as he said famously:
Bring on more russians.......
that was the beginning of the end
numeromis, who had more than half of the chips in play when play resumed, didn't have the poker gods on his side. After losing several small pots, he was all in pre-flop with KSpadeJClub against axel397's 5Spade9Spade

| Czech POWER!!! I dont belive it. Never seen 2 guys in top 3 from my country, expectly on-line. But dont blame all east-europe guys, we arent like Russians.That Hungarian guy in WSOP finals (cant imagine his name) can prove, we arent bingo players. |

| 11 days, 100 events and more than $8 million in prizes given away. A combined total of 1,308,994 players contributed a small part of their bankrolls to create a record-breaking series of tournaments.Marcin "Goral" Horecki bagged his second PCA package courtesy of the small stakes extravaganza. |

| I've just watched the main event replay , and all I can tell you is that this axel guy is just another HUGE russian donk , fish , and these are kind words to say , had much worse in my mind , it was down to the last 3 players , numeromis was chip leader , axel was 2nd , and another random guy 3d , and this russian donk axel , calls the chip leader's all-in , with 5 fking 9 , and lucks out , so in my oppinion , he doesn't even deserve 1 positive comment.|
