      I personally like best NL Holdem tournaments with deep stack and normal speed. I also have bankroll good enough only for the lowest buyin tournaments. As a result of this following events from micro millions are best for me:

      MicroMillions 26: $1.10 NLHE [6-Max], $10K Gtd
      MicroMillions 56: $1.10 NLHE, $4K Gtd
      MicroMillions 63: $1.10 NLHE, $5K Gtd
      MicroMillions 87: $1.10 NLHE, $4K Gtd
      MicroMillions 96: $1.10 NLHE, $4K Gtd
      MicroMillions 113: $1.10 NLHE [Progressive KO], $5K Gtd
      MicroMillions 133: $1.10 NLHE [8-Max], $5K Gtd

          Thanks for my prize last week but already have a ticket through a deposit hope I can rebuy lol

          I love the Micro Millions my schedule is based on buyin/timegame/ my list might not be definite as gets hot in little room already played 2 cashed for $0 so im down $4.40 so far

          141 only as I have a ticket

          The ones above are most likely now if I do well or satty in potential games are as follows in additional to above


          If i go deep in one that takes 10 to 12 hours plus will take the following day off in this weather

          So 15 "definites" & 6 potential but knowing me out of the 21 it prolly be around 11 to 14 of these could be as low as 9 as friend from USA is visiting but hoping to aim for 15 weather & sleep could stop me

          All games are NLHE not turbo or hyper although that showtime is good and could be added

          Ive had some $3.30 tickets for ages now over 5 years lol but not in a rush to use em may wait till MM16 when its cooler have used 1/4 oh and im getting a bit more adventerous im playing in a Win the button .no rebuys on list so far schedule changes day by day though

          Once I improve further I plan on potentially playing some rebuys and 6max

          no omaha or prgoressive KO for me so only NLHE that isnt a hyper or turbo unless very deep stacked

          gle oh im definitety going to play the main as ticket expires in September

            I wish I could play all of them ! But its not an option so if I have to choose one I like the spin and go but I would play any of them !


            • #7
              The MicroMillons Events I will definitely play are:
              -the NL 6-max events,because as we know,in NL 6-max players are more loose than in normal NL (9 handed) and I love to play loose because I am an observant player and I can exploit my opponents,especially those micro-stakes players so I can afford to play a lot of hands,but what I really love about NL 6-max is that the ranges are a lot wider,meaning we can open with more hands and 3-bet more.The NL 6-max is the game I chose to train my range analysis,as the ranges are wider,making it harder to tell what possible hands a player can have in a certain spot;
              -MicroMillions 71 [Progressive K.O. Sunday Storm SE],despite not being a NL 6-max game this tournament has an at least 250k $ prize pool and as everybody else I want a big share of it!Also I have to mention that I truly hate K.O. Tournaments because a percent of the total prize pool is added to the bounty prize pool and I rarely get many bounties,even if I make it to the final table and also because it's even harder to take a bad beat/cooler.For example you go all in against one player and you are flipping (50%-50% equity),not only you might be busted out of the tournament if you are the player at risk (with the shorter stack),you also might loose a bounty when you are not at risk (the player with the higher stack) so frustration is bigger when you lose;
              -MicroMillions 141 [Main Event],this event must be on everybody's 'definitely playing list' as it's the main event and has a 1M $ prize pool and like everybody else,I want to win it.I don't know how much money the winner will get,but I bet that will be a life changing amount of money and that's a shot I don't want to miss.Also I want to play this because as I said it's the main event and I just want to see my name on the 1st place ;
              I am not going to play the re-buy events,even if they are NL 6-max as I hate those tournaments.I hate them because until the end of the re-buy period players are just going all-in,re-buy,all-in,re-buy and that is not poker,in my opinion,that's reckless gambling.
              Those are the events I am going to play and hopefully win most of them !

                Greetings to everyone I've already played micro millions of different formats. Last night I played 1.1 6max and 3.3 with min cash. My favorite format is PKO and I play them I like 11 $ PKO 250K (71) in sunday and I can not wait to start it. Why? Because I'm bountykiller: P good luck to everyone

                  Which MicroMillion events will you definitely be playing and why?
                  Already played a Omaha hi/lo event, tried my first +6nlhe event which I enjoyed, played a couple of rebuy events, 2-7 single draw, 5 card draw.... ok I think that's all I've played so far.
                  Now definitely planning on playing the main event and the sunday storm special, just entered FL Omaha8, as for the rest of the many games on offer I'll have to wait and see how busy I am.
                  As for the why I'm playing, fun - I love poker, opportunity to cash deep and big for a low buy in and hopefully learning from mistakes. cheers and good luck.

                    Apologies, I'm not going to be able to play any of the PLO micromillions as it is HOLIDAYS, so not going to enter this weeks competition, but good luck to everyone trying to win a ticket.

                      Which MicroMillion events will you definitely be playing and why?

                      I have never played in the MicroMillions before, but I have been looking at the schedule and would like to play in a couple of events if possible. The min stakes ($1.10) buy ins are the ones that best suit me.

                      So far, some of the optimal events are scheduled at 4am my time (starting time) so that doesn't really work for me (Canada - CDT), but I'm sure there are some that I can make work! I will have a further look.

                      I like the fact that as for low as $1.10, I am able to play in a long length tournament that can last 8 hours or longer if you run very deep. The chance to play in such a lengthy tournament is not something that come up all the time at such low stakes, so I appreciate the opportunity to be able to participate in that type of scenario!

                      Hmmm.....look like events #56 and #63 are good fits for me!!

                      And while I'm here...a question....event #8 (yes, it's long over now) was listed as a $1.10 buy-in NLHE "Showtime" event. What does the "showtime" refer to? I couldn't find any info on that in any of the MicroMillions info pages. Just curious if anyone knows? Does it refer to any special rules of play or is it just a name? Thanks!!

                      Good luck to all who play in this years events!!

                        Five days ago, I spent 4 School Pass Tickets at PokerStars School MicroMillions satellites and one of them got lucky. On the 8-Game satellite I got a ticket for 141 and I'm eagerly awaiting 28 July.
                        I've got a few School Pass Tickets left, and I'll use them for PokerStars School MicroMillions satellites. Even though the most I play Hold'em, I will force other types of games. A few changes are good for refreshment, and it is easier to get some tickets as a smaller number of players are registered. I hope I'm lucky again.
                        I remember the freeroll tournaments that played 4-5 years ago from Monday to Friday . We could get tickets for one NLHE and one tournament in another format that was played on the days of the weekend. That was a great promotion and I'm sorry it does not exist yet. I won more tickets by playing Razz, Stud, Badugi, Omaha, HORSE and other formats than Hold'em, although 36-48 tickets are commonly assigned, as opposed to 52 tickets on Hold'em. Already tomorrow I will try to get a PokerStars School MicroMillions ticket at any of tournaments in these formats.
                        The schedule of the MicroMillions tournaments is really very rich and everyone can find something interesting. I will play several tournaments with lower buy-ins. 132 and 70 are the most impressive and I'll play them. I would be happy to play 55, 85, 98 and 108 but their starts are in an unfavorable time. I'll play a few Hold'em tournaments with buy-in 1.10 $.

                        Let's hope we have success, good luck to everyone at MicroMillions!

                          One very cool thing regaring the MicroMillions Event is the possibilty to play a variety of games aside from the regular NLHE or PLO variants. With that in mind these are the games I will definitely try to play in the upcoming days:

                          First and foremost I will be playing the NLHE tournaments as this is the type of game I am the most familiar with and there is certainly nothing wrong with going for the classics! In that regard I will also try to play the main event (The buy-in is quite fair) if I can manage it timewise.

                          Second I will also try variants of Poker I am not heavily familiar with but have always been keen to try out, including:
                          • Razz
                          • Stud
                          • Draw
                          • Horse (The prospect of constantly shifting gears sounds exciting!)
                          With the second group I believe I will probably be at somewhat of a disadvantage because of my unfamiliarity with the format, nonetheless the buy-ins allow me to test the waters. And maybe as they are not soll well known but fairly accessible during this event there will be more people like me who play them for the novelty (increasing my chances again!).
                          One last tip in that matter: If some of these lesser known variants are your specialty, I would enter right away! Due to the affordable buy-ins (Many less familiar players like myself) and respectable pay outs you can really get ahead here. In fact this will probably be one of my goals for the next such event to get better at one or two lesser known game types and try to profit from that.

                          Have some successful games and good luck to you all!

                            My current bankroll doesn't allow me to target any micro events other than $1.10. I would love to cash in one of them to be able to try the bigger range though! Personally I love Micromillions for the fact that I can pay small and win big. Current tendency of my bankroll is to go down rather than up, therefore I badly need to cash in to recover from that :-)


                            • #15
                              The tournaments I am looking forward to playing are:

                              MicroMillions 59: $1.10 NLHE, [6-Max, Turbo, Progressive KO Shootout], $5K Gtd
                              MicroMillions 84: $1.10+R NLHE ,[8-Max, Turbo], $25K Gtd
                              MicroMillions 104: $1.10+R NLHE ,[8-Max, Turbo], $20K Gtd
                              MicroMillions 109 $1.10 NLHE [4-Max, Hyper-Turbo, Progressive Total KO], $4K Gtd
                              MicroMillions 144: $1.10+R NLHE ,[6-Max, Turbo], $20K Gtd

                              I like these because they are all Turbo's and a Hyper-Turbo so I would be able to stay focused for the duration of the game, hopefully,, lol. I also might play some of the other poker variant games, but I would definitely need to brush up on the rules on some of these games for sure.

                              I just want to wish all the PokerSchool members here the best of luck during Micromillions 15!
