You are forgiven for scratching your head and wondering why PokerNews wrote a headline about the PokerStars MicroMillions with biggest in it. The MicroMillions is a low-stakes festival, after all. That may be the case, but with $4.4 million in combined guaranteed prize pools, there was bound to be some players that padded their bankrolls with large scores for a small investment.
Austria’s “neckbr4ke” is one such player. They were one of 8,078 entrants in MicroMillions 107: $22 NLHE 8-Max High Roller. All those buy-ins resulted in a $161,560 prize pool, including a trio of five-figure payouts!
Everyone was guaranteed at least $1,512 for their efforts once the nine-handed final table was set. “MAROTOx86” collected that sum after falling in ninth, with “Muido Harper” and “Samiyuq Kay” running out of luck or steam or a mixture of both to leave the tournament with only six players.
Those six became five when “DaniloPMPB” found themselves with fresh air where their chips once stood, and then four with the untimely demise of “tosati’s.”
Denmark’s “illidandk” bowed out in fourth, a finish good for $8,217, leaving the final trio of low-stakes poker tournament specialists to duke it out safe in the knowledge their $22 buy-in was now worth more than $11,000/
Third place and $11,527 went to Hungary’s “goodluckgabi,” leaving “neckbr4ke” and “sensy10” to fight it out for the $22,695 top prize. However, with the difference between first and second place being more than $6,500, a colossal jump for a $22 buy-in event, the heads-up duo struck a deal that lessened those payouts. The deal resulted in “sensy10” banking $18,508 after falling at the final hurdle, and “neckbr4ke” scooping an impressive $20,359 for their victory.

“rickroger10” Takes Home a MicroMillions Title for Brazil
MicroMillions 105: $11 NLHE 8-Max PKO Sunday Special was the event with the second-largest prize pool of the series so far, weighing in at $159,112 after 16,236 PokerStars players bought in.
Whereas all five Brazilians that reached the final table of the $22 buy-in event mentioned above failed to be the last player standing, “rickroger10” got the job done here.
Seven of this event’s nine finalists secured prizes worth more than $1,500 when you include the progressive bounties payments. Even “jucabala390” and “TruePokerism,” who crashed out in ninth and eighth place, reeled in hauls worth $909 and $975, respectively!
The field continued thinning, and “rickroger10” found themselves heads-up against fellow Brazilian “DarkAzazel.” Both players were guaranteed more than $7,300 from the main prize pool, but the final bounty payment tipped the scales at over $5,500. Indeed, “rickroger10” boosted their payout with $5,601 worth of bounties for a total haul worth $12,978, which is pretty ridiculous for an $11 buy-in tournament.

Croatian “PlayaNEO” Turns $11 Into $9,675
“PlayaNEO” came out on top in the MicroMillions 10: $11 NLHE 8-Max PKO Sunday Special on the opening weekend of the festival, and saw their $11 buy-in swell until it reached $9,675 in size.
Usually, in PKO events, there is a substantial difference between the prize the champion and the runner-up takes home, but not in this tournament. The Croatian champion reeled in a $9,675 score, while “flushnutsAA” of Brazil won $9,139 thanks to being the only player, aside from the champion, to pull in four figures worth of scalps; some $1,887, to be exact.
