PokerStars gives away another $2 million. And which WSOP events should you be playing this year? It’s all in our daily wrap-up of the world of poker, the Hit and Run.

PokerStars’ latest millionaires

PokerStars made two more millionaires this week. The players that competed had completed some challenges to qualify for a free “all-in shootout.” The 12 lucky players who advanced past the shootouts competed in a pair of six-handed sit and go’s on Sunday, with $1 million going to first place of each. Second got $50,000 plus 1 million FPPs, and every player walked away with at least $10,000. Not bad for a tournament with no entry fee. Read about the lucky millionaires here.
