The first ever Michigan Championship of Online Poker started two-and-a-half weeks ago.

It just kept getting bigger and bigger. Fields kept growing, prize pools kept expanding, and guarantees kept getting increased.

Finally the dust settled Monday night, and after 60 events players on PokerStars MI took away more than $2.2 million in prizes.

You might recall way back in mid-February before MICOOP began that the total guarantees originally added up to just over $1 million. Big turnouts during the first week inspired PokerStars to up guarantees starting halfway through — in fact doubling them for “Double Up Weekend.” The increases kept coming after that, all of the way up through the final events.

In terms of winners, “sexycaitlyn” was an early double-champion in the series, capturing both the first $200 Sunday Special (Event #6) and the $100 4-max tournament (Event #11).

The next-to-last event saw another two-time winner emerge as well. “Coolriver84” had won a $100 6-Max tournament midway through (Event #34), and on Sunday also took the title in the $100 Nightly Stars tournament (Event #59) after making a three-handed deal.

Last night, however, came the crowning of a champion in the marquee event, the $300 buy-in Main Event. The tournament originally sported a $125,000 guarantee, although that was increased to $200,000 late last week.

In the end the two-day tournament attracted an incredible 1,284 total entries, thereby creating a $359,520 prize pool. That’s the biggest tournament in PokerStars MI short history (of course), and sets a pretty high mark going forward for the site.

“smftt” took the Main Event win last night, earning a nifty $56,398.35 for doing so.

Congrats to “smftt” and to all who won during the first ever MICOOP. Take a look below for results from all 60 events.
