      Hi guys,

      Today sees the climax of PokerStars MicroMillions II series culminating in Event 98 - The Main Event



      There is a whooping [COLOR=green]$1 million guaranteed prizepool[/COLOR] with the buy-in of $22 Starting at 19.30 GMT this Sunday (25th November 2012) a maximum of 150,000 players will compete to take down a guaranteed $150k pay day!

      As mentioned above the buy-in $22 so as a PokerStrategy member I would like all members to keep BRM in mind as this is going to be quite a large amount of money for some players. There are quite a few smaller satellites running so plenty of ways to have a chance and get involved and keep it in safe BRM.

      Will you be participating?

      If you do not have a PokerStars account and wish to set one up, click here for all the details on how to do so!

      We have set this thread up for all members who are playing or wish to rail during the event.

      Best of luck to all who participate :)

      Eesh, forgot I had a $15 tourney limit in place, saved up 33 T$ from FPP storm sats only to fail to register :f_o:

      Managed to satellite in direct though, so I shall be playing this. GL to all other PS players and see you at the final table :s_ugly:

      If I cash for 4+ figures this will be me:

      Managed to satellite in through a $0.50 tourney. Took one rebuy and an add-on though, so it's really $1.50. Still nothing though :f_biggrin:

      Obviously going to win this though, no problem :coolface:

      The restrictions limit you from buying in yourself, but they do allow you to sat in no problem :)

      I'm in for the Main Event tonight, turned 1400FPP into $44 so that's essentially a free $22 entry :f_biggrin:

      Away we go!

      Managed to river the nuts in a small $100 pot so raised $8000 in the hope someone thought it was a misclick :D

      Didn't work this time...

      got ourselves a nice big 10k starting stack too, currently on 11k after a few hands, lets hope it continues!

      So far

      my JJ beat QQ
      QQ split with QQ
      KK lost to 66

      all vs same guy.

      So far had KK,QQ x3, JJ and still below starting stack :(

      Edit: Just got QQ a 4th time in just 24 hands, to put me back at starting stack

      Got a weird strong urge to 3bet 53s from BTN, but the guy was tight and I couldn't do it.

      Flop 355

      :facepalm:

      For the first time ever in an MTT I actually feel like my table is tough. Really want to get moved. Instead of 1-3 ridiculous fish and the rest predictable TAGs, I have people who are constantly adjusting.

      While I always appreciate a challenge, I appreciate chips more. :f_biggrin:

      Just fluctuating at a round starting stack, as is almost the whole table. The only big pots at the table have been coolers like set over set.

      18k ;) although I probably haven't done much for diplomatic relationships between Ireland and Costa Rica in the process.

      Flopped an open ender vs a guys Aces. He slow played it and paid the price :)

      Finally made some chips, up to 17k after opening 34s for 2.5bb from the BTN, flopping a straight (and also losing all PFR respect at the table), only to pick up AKs the very next hand and take down a 4k pot by someone who thought I was bluffing them. :f_biggrin:

      Just won a HUGE pot AA vs AKo to 35k, till a shorty made a sick call 30bb deep BvB with QJo when I 4bet him all in 99 to win the flip and take me down to 27k

      YES!!! New table!!! Set over setted someone :f_biggrin:
