Three of the scheduled six PartyPoker MILLIONS Online KO Main Event flights are done and dusted, with the remaining three taking place across May 28-29. Time is rapidly running out if you want to get in the mix and have any chance of securing the lion’s share of the $500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Across those three starting days, some 515 of your fellow PartyPoker players have bought into or won their way into the $530 buy-in MILLIONS Online KO Main Event. However, at the time of writing, only 78 of those starters have punched their Day 2 tickets, locking in a min-cash for their efforts and any bounties they collected along the way.
Completed MILLIONS Online KO Main Event Day 1s
|Day 1A||210||32||Paulo Brombin||22,722,425|
|Day 1B||164||25||Antonio Ortega||23,619,050|
|Day 1C||141||21||Luis Dono||18,666,393|
Day 1A saw the 210-strong field reduced to only 32, and Brazil’s Paulo Brombin was the fastest out of the block. Brombin amassed 22,722,425 chips from a 1,000,000 starting stack.
The second flight, Day 1B, drew in 164 players, of which 25 made it through to Day 2 on May 29. Antonio Ortega of Malta bagged up 23,619,050 chips, enough for the Day 1B and the overall chip lead.
Day 1C was the latest flight; it ran on May 21. Only 21 of the 141 starters made it through unscathed, with Mexico’s Luis Dono’s 18,666,393 stack being the largest on the night.
MILLIONS Online KO Main Event Top 10 Chip Counts
|8||Steven Van Zadelhoff||Malta||12,561,583|
|10||Patrice Brandt||United Kingdom||9,999,370|
If you plan on jumping into any of the remaining MILLIONS Online KO Main Event flights and aspire to finish in the top ten chip counts, you will need to turn your starting stack into at least 10 million!
United Kingdom-based Frenchman Patrice Brandt currently occupies tenth place, with 9,999,370 chips at his disposal. Brandt is freerolling his way to a more significant prize than a min-cash because he already has $875 worth of bounty payments locked up.
Anyone wishing to become the chip leader and give themselves the best possible chance of becoming the PartyPoker MILLIONS Online KO Main Event champion will have to shine brightly on their chosen Day 1. Why? Because Antonio Ortega is the current chip leader, his stack has 23,619,050 betting tokens. Only Paulo Brombin, with 22,722,425, has over 20 million.
Unsurprisingly, Ortega has accumulated the most bounty cash so far. The Malta-based pro has $1,750 worth of scalps to his name. Denmark’s Mikkel Astradsson also has $1,750 from the bounty prize pool in his PartyPoker accounts; Astradsson occupies sixth place as of now.
