Congratulations to Barry Carson, who won the €250 No Limit Hold’em Freezeout after a three-way deal with Elizabeth Kerry and Barry McMahon. They each took €4,000 and played on for a further €800 to the winner. Kudos also to Peter Horkay, for cashing in the same side event for the second day in a row!

Party Poker MILLIONS Main Event Update
Day 1b of the Party Poker MILLIONS main event attracted a further 55 entrants, to take the total number of entries up to 99. By the end of level 11, when play stopped, there were 24 players remaining, who all progress into tomorrow’s day 2. The chip leader at the end of the day is Australian Luke Martinelli, who bagged a 319,300 stack, just slightly more than Nicolae Dragomir’s 305.900 total from day 1a. Luke finished over 100,000 chips ahead of Spaniard Ruben Lopez, who posted the second highest count of the day on 213,700. Also making it through the day was the ever smiling Michel Molenaar, who goes into day two with 123,900 cookies.
