Abstract: Extra-solar planets can be efficiently detected in gravitational microlensing events of high magnification. High accuracy photometry is required over a short, well-defined time interval only, of order 10--30 hours. Most planets orbiting the lens star are revealed by perturbations in the microlensing light curve in this time. Consequently, telescope resources need be concentrated during this period only. Here we discuss some aspects of planet detection in these events.
