If you were at a loss for things to do for the remainder of the week, you have just discovered the ideal activity. PokerStars is hosting the return of the MicroMillions Marathon Series, which features inexpensive buy-ins, substantial guarantees, and an abundance of diverse poker variations and tournament formats.
Do you frequently feel envious of those who actively compete in significant online poker tournaments? The MicroMillions Marathon is specifically designed for you.
This series accommodates to players who wish to partake in tournament series and play in events with considerable guarantees and robust structures but do not necessarily have the bankroll to do so, such as those who will be competing in the impending Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP).
The series, which runs from Thursday, April 20 through Sunday, April 23, guarantees a $2 million prize fund across 84 events, with buy-ins beginning at a meager $1.10. In addition, the overwhelming majority of tournaments in the series have buy-ins of $5.50 or less, with only seven out of 84 exceeding this threshold.

$55 entry fee High Roller
All 84 of the MicroMillions Marathon’s events are worthy of consideration. However, some competitions attract more attention than others.
The $11 Daily Special Progressive KOs should be the first tournaments on everyone’s ‘To Play’ schedule. On April 20 and 21, there will be tournaments with a guarantee of $75,000, and on April 22 and 23, there will be tournaments with a guarantee of $100,000. Note that the Sunday event begins at 5:05 p.m. BST. These tournaments begin at 6:05 p.m.
Check out the MicroMillions Marathon Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) Main Event with a $35,000 guarantee for an additional $11 buy-in event. On April 23, at 6:35 p.m., late registration is available for the first two and a half hours of play.
The PKO Main Event has the largest guarantee of the series, which should come as no surprise. The buy-in for the Main Event increases to $22 but remains a tremendous value due to the $350,000 guarantee. Once again, this event commences on Sunday at 6:05 p.m. BST.
The MicroMillions Marathon event with the most expensive buy-in is the High Roller, which has a $55 buy-in. The guarantee is well worth the price of admission, as no less than $250,000 will be paid out once the event begins at 7:05 p.m. on Sunday.
