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, the United Kingdom and Ireland are still faring well. Players from the UK have cashed a total of 3,317 times for $146,161.08 in winnings. Fourteen of those cashes have been final table appearances and two of those final tables have ended in a UK champion.
Ireland has had just 2,570 players in total register for MicroMillions III events so far but they have helped put up some impressive figures nonetheless. Irish players have cashed 369 times, reached three final tables and although they are still without an outright win they have still taken $23,816.98 from the prize pools.
