PokerStars has announced that the popular Micro Millions series will return this summer. Around 100 tournaments have been scheduled to run for one week in July, with buy-ins starting as low as $0.11.
Following the remarkable success of the inaugural Micro Millions series, PokerStars
has announced a new edition of the tournament festival, set to run in July this year.
The first Micro Millions series was played earlier this year, and introduced an exhaustive tournament schedule for small stakes players with buy-ins ranging from $0.11 to $22.
The concept was an instant hit and attracted scores of players, before "Zabaleta1" finished off the festivities by winning the $22 Main Event for a $140,000.
Now, PokerStars has decided to let the series return to players, offering a new round of about 100 tournaments in all thinkable sizes and categories.
The second edition of the Micro Millions will take off on July 12 and run throughout the following ten days until July 22.
