This is a discussion on micromillions 2020 within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; On November 19, the micro million starts - share who will participate, what buy-ins, maybe he won the main event
Thank you for the info - I was not aware it's coming.
Whether I will play it though.. Maybe I will play a couple, but honestly, it's not my favourite series of tournaments, as fields are too big, they are enormous, a ton of time you spend just to mincash, and add to this that the level of play often is just pure madness..
Good luck to all who's gonna give it a try. I recall I've seen someone from CC getting into top-3 of one of those monster-field Micromillions Events. He might as well have won it, I'm not sure So it will be good to renew this result
I'll be doing a thread for it, cause wanna make at least one very deep run in it.
Micromillions are very great opportunity to have a taste of big series by not risking bankroll, just having fun and trying different strategies.
Maybe I will play a few of these just for fun, but I have two issues with MTTs on PokerStars, which is why, I play way more on 888 Poker these days:
1) The fields on PokerStars are often very large, which increase variance and the duration of each MTT.
2) The rake on PokerStars is 20% higher for anything under 22$ buyin.
As for point number 1), when PokerStars hold their events, the already large fields get even larger, so its almost a turn-off for me. Although to be fair maybe the events can be softer, because some people come just to play them. As for point number 2) however I really cant find any excuse. Are PokerStars MTTs 20% better, or why I need to pay this extra fee? I just dont see it
Looking forward to this Serie, I will try to play some tournys and satellites.
There is a lot of variance on this kind of series with excessive players participation, but it is a great opportunity to enter with a low buy-in and can win a good prize.
