Andre 'acoimbra' Coimbra has broken through the halfway point of his 100 event MicroMillions challenge and is looking refreshed having picked up the best part of eight hours sleep over the last 24, a far cry from the one hour he got a couple of days ago.
The downside of that is, of course, that he hasn't made as many deep runs stalling his attempts to take a title and top the MicroMillions Leader Board. The Team PokerStars Online member has slipped to 33rd but is still in a good position with 200 points, the equivalent of winning two events outright. Catch up with his progress below.
The key stats
- Total hours of sleep: 23 hours 20 mins
- In the money finishes: 13 (through day 6)
- Tournament earnings: $273.59
- Tournaments played: 53
