Online Poker Site Review » Poker Basics » Micromania at Pokerstars


July is the month of micromania at pokerstars.com. It is a whole month dedicated to the smallest games. For micro-stakes players micromania will be a special treat. You have improved VIP benefits, live event qualifiers, added-value tournaments and a special deposit bonus offer!

If you are a play money/freeroll player this is the time to get in on the real money action. You will find this is the best time to take the plunge to the micro-stakes level.

Improved VIP Rewards

The time is ripe to play in the micro-stakes, with at least 50% extra VIP rewards! For the month of July designated micro-stakes cash games players will be credited 10 VIP Player Points (VPPs) for every Dollar raked . That’s up from the usual rates of 5.5 VPPs for 6-Max and 6 VPPs for full ring games.

Euro games will be boosted to award 12.5 VPPs per Euro raked, instead of the usual 8 to 8.5 VPPs rate.

Multi-Table Tournaments

Enter into the MicroMania Special. A $1000 added No-Limit Hold’em Tournament with a $1.10 entry. This awesome tournament runs every day, and even better four times each day! You can get into one today at these times: 10:20 ET, 14:20 ET, 19:20 ET & 22:20 ET.

To locate the events go to the ‘Tourney’ and ‘Special’ tabs in the PokerStars lobby. You can also search for them by opening the Tourney Filter and typing MicroMania into the search field.

Sit and Go’s

Play the 50 player MicroMania $1.10 Super sit and go. All day, every day in July you can take a seat for a chance at a piece of $100,000. The prize pool is divided up between all winners with the cred being made on August 2nd.
Here’s how it works – if there are 12,650 MicroMania Super Sit & Go winners in July, every winner will receive a $7.91 ($100,000 / 12,650) share of the prize pool.
The MicroMania Sit & Go’s will be 50-player No Limit Hold’em tournaments. You can play as many of the tournament as you like, but you will only be eligible for one share of the $100,000 prize pool.
