PokerStars weekend review (3-18-12)

March 19, 2012


Listen, PokerStars. We only have so many fingers. There are only so many stories we can cover at one time. We even recruited more than 100 more fingers to help us this week just to keep up with the action you’re throwing at us. It’s starting to get a little silly.

In one weekend, we faced a couple dozen MicroMillions events (one of which went to this new version of a super Nova) and another round of Viktor Blom’s SuperStar Showdown. That kept us busy around the clock. Meanwhile, the normal Sunday majors still drew huge crowds.

As the MicroMillion continued awarding big prizes to the low-limit grinders on PokerStars, the world’s biggest weekly tournament came back for another big show. More than 7,700 players signed up for this weekend’s Sunday Million. When it was over, Germany’s SpeckBasu had won $231,214. For a full recap of the action, see: Germany’s SpeckBasu wins $231K in March 18 Sunday Million.

Elsewhere, Maverick 36O was picking up his own six-figure score over in the Sunday Warm-Up. To see how he did it, read Sunday Warm-Up: Maverick 36O harnesses momentum and mojo, winning $102,990.

For a complete rundown of this weekend’s majors, see the 3-18-12 PokerStars weekend majors results list.

And don’t forget, the PokerStars MicroMillions continues through this coming weekend. Don’t miss your chance to win big money with a small buy-in.

And, we’re just kidding, PokerStars. Our fingers like the work, so keep sending it our way.
