The world’s most popular tournament series is back.
The PokerStars MicroMillions 9 championship series is set to take place from Nov. 6 to Nov. 16. The series will feature 100 events, and buy-ins ranging from $0.11 all the way up to the eventual $22 No Limit Hold’em Main Event, which features a guaranteed price pool of at least $1 million. Every type of game, from Hold’em and Omaha to Razz and Baugi, will be featured in the series. The previous eight MicroMillions series generated $67 million in prize money and 10.8 million tournament entries.

One exciting new addition to the MicroMillions series is the new tournament format called ‘Bubble Dash.’ During a ‘Bubble Dash’ tournament, the blinds start out at only three minutes, and then they progressively increase in length the longer the tournament runs. This results in the players ‘bursting’ the bubble faster than usual–approximately 90-minutes into the tournament–but the extended blinds also allow for more gameplay between players once money is in play. There are three available ‘BD’ tournaments during this year’s MicroMillions–events 10, 51, 88, which have buy-ins of $2.20, $2.20, and $4.40, respectively. All three events offer rebuys.
Leader Board & Prizes
Not only will thousands of players be competing against each other for their piece of the $5 million guaranteed prize pool, but they will also be battling for their own spot on the MicroMillions 9 Leader Board. Players who consistently excel during the series will earn special prizes.
