The MicroMillions online series is getting more and more popular every year. The fourth edition of MicroMillions, which concluded last Sunday, attracted 1,572,760 players who battled for an incredible $9,588,892.60 prize pool spread over 100 events. In fact, MicroMillions 4 is the most played tournament series in online poker history!
The highlight of MicroMillion 4 was, of course, the main event last Sunday. A total field of 68,081 created a staggering $1,361,620 prize pool. Many players took advantage of the three-hour late registration period and about half of the field had been eliminated when registration closed.
Two hours later the money had been reached, with all remaining 9,090 player being guaranteed $54.46 each. After 10 hours of play there were still 7 tables running with about 60 players. A few hours later a final table had been reached and eventually the last 5 players agreed on a deal, leaving $20,000 and the title to play for. After the deal had been sealed it didn't take long before Ges26, from Belarus, took down the tournament for $140,468.56.
