PokerStars is offering several buy-ins, all of which are affordable. The lowest on the list is $1.10 followed by $3.30 and $5.50. most events will have the last two buy-ins. On the higher end, players can compete in a few $11 and one $22 and $55 event.
Bigger Events on the Schedule
As always, the series would not be complete without any highly anticipated events. The two largest tournaments on the schedule include the High Roller event and the Main Event tournament. The High Roller includes the largest buy-in at $55. It will feature a total prize pool of $200,000.
The Main Event or MicroMillions 202 will feature a low $22 buy-in and a huge $500,000 prize pool. The event is a progressive knockout-style tournament so even if players don’t finish in the money, they can earn a prize if they eliminate other competitors.
It will be interesting to see the turnout for the Main Event. The buy-in is super low and with so much money up for grabs, it would not be surprising to see every player who turns out for the MicroMillions to compete in this event. Will it surpass the $500,000 guarantee? We shall see!
