Get Ready North America For PokerStars’ MicroMania
Sunday, 28. November 2010

PokerStars invites all of their micro-stakes players in the US and Canada to participate in MicroMania, a month long celebration of their micro-stakes games. MicroMania will take place between December 14, 2010 and January 15, 2011 and offers players improved VIP benefits, excellent added-value tourneys, qualifiers for the Sunday Million and deposit bonuses.

If are new to poker or have been playing in some freerolls and play money games and are looking to move your game into the realm of real stakes then MicroMania is the perfect time to make the transition. Players making their first deposit with PokerStars using the deposit code ‘Micro’ or active money players making a reload using the deposit code ‘Mania’ from December 14, 2010 through January 15, 2011 will receive a ticket to the weekly MicroMania: Sunday Million $1.10 qualifier being held each Saturday. Each MicroMania: Sunday Million $1.10 qualifier will award a guaranteed 25 seats to the Sunday Million each week. Of course, players making their first deposit will also be eligible for PokerStars’ incredible First Deposit Bonus.

MicroMania Cash Games
Players participating in PokerStars’ specially designated micro-stakes cash games will receive a boost to their VIP rewards. For every $1 that is paid in rake in PokerStars’ micro-stakes cash game tables, PokerStars will offer the table a VIP Player Point (VPP) bonus according to the following:

$0.01/$0.02 cash tables: 12 VPPs
$0.02/$0.05 cash tables: 10 VPPs
$0.05/$0.10 cash tables: 8 VPPs

Players will be both earning Frequent Player Points (FPPs) quicker and clearing their pending bonuses at nearly twice the pace. Bonuses will be offered to all No Limit, Fixed Limit and Pot Limit real money micro-stakes ring games.

MicroMania Multi Table Tournaments
Throughout the entire promotional period, PokerStars will be running four $1.10 tournaments each night, all with $100 added prizepools. Three of the tournaments will be No Limit Texas Hold’em (NLHE) and one will be a Pot Limit Omaha (PLO):

NLHE: 20:00, 21:00 and 21:30 ET
PLO: 21:00 ET

Players can find the MicroMania Multi Table Tournaments in the PokerStars lobby by clicking the ‘Tourney’ and ‘Regional’ tab.

PokerStars will be maintaining a MicroMania Leader Board. Players earn MicroMania Leader Board points according to their performance in the MicroMania Multi Table Tournaments. At the end of the MicroMania promotion, the top 100 finishers on the MicroMania Leader Board will share a $5,000 prizepool. The amount of the prizepool that they walk away with is determined by the number of MicroMania Leader Board points that they earned.

MicroMania Sit & Go Tournaments
PokerStars will be hosting the MicroMania $0.55 Super Sit & Go tournaments continuously throughout the promotion. All winners will receive an equal share of a $20,000 prizepool. For example, if there are a total of 1,000 MicroMania Sit & Go winners then each one will receive a $20 cash prize. The MicroMania $0.55 Super Sit & Go tournaments are 36 seat No Limit Texas Hold’em Tournaments. While players can participate in as many MicroMania $0.55 Super Sit & Go tournaments as they wish, each player can only win one piece of the $20,000 prizepool.
