2022 PokerStars MicroMillions

The PokerStars MicroMillions came to a thrilling conclusion over the weekend with the series’ final events crowning their champions, including the massive Main Event and High Roller tournaments. Brazil’s “matthews085” walked away with the MicroMillions Main Event title for $36,295 while “deanlougue” turned $55 into $46,507 in the High Roller tournament.

The MicroMillions Main Event drew in 27,544 entries, which meant a guarantee-busting $550,880 prize pool, an impressive sum in its own right but especially so when you consider it only cost $22 to buy into.

Nobody at the final table won less than $2,500, well, “fccamilo” collected $2,490 for their ninth-place exit, which is near as damn it $2,500. Thanks, in part, to the bounty element, there were some substantial jumps in the prize money awarded. “ADAUSD” banked $4,280 for their eighth-place finish, “UP.itAA007” scooped $4,715 after falling in seventh, with a $6,718 prize winging its way to “Nazar81400” when their tournament ended abruptly in sixth.

The final four-figure sum, $9,234, went to New Zealand’s “Paul.Stamets.”

Three of the final four finishers hailed from Brazil, meaning the United Kingdom’s “jimpot139” was surrounded by Samba stars. Those three Brazilians became two after the eliminations of “Pandaa’xx” and “DSantanna87,” who walked away with $12,050 and $15,226.

“jimpot139” faced off against “matthews085” knowing they would win at least $26,454. However, they fell at the final hurdle and collected no extra prize money. “matthews085,” on the other hand, saw $36,295 hit their PokerStars account, with $12,423 coming from the bounty prize pool.

“deanlogue” Scoops $46,507 High Roller Top Prize

The United Kingdom’s “deanlogue” outlasted 6,545 opponents in the MicroMillons #204: $55 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller and got their hands on an impressive $46,507.

The top five finishers each received five figures after “Spotzilla666” ($2,735), “marceloscob” ($3,989), “CambadaDeMixos” ($5,554), and “marek_heinz” ($7,915) bowed out.

Brazil’s “keyhell” was the first player to turn their $55 buy-in into five figures, namely $11,278. Montenegro’s “DoryanGh” was next to fall; they collected $16,072. Third place and $22,902 went to “NERINEJA85,” leaving “llllSquarepants” of Malta heads-up against “deanlogue” of the UK. The heads-up duo did not strike any deal, meaning there was a $14,000 difference in prize money, or more than 250 buy-ins! The lack of a deal meant “llllSquarepants” received $32,634 for their second-place finish, while “deanlogue” hauled in $46,507.
