The 2019 MILLIONS Online event kicked off on December 1st and saw 709 players exchange $10,300 for 1 million chips and the chance to write themselves into online poker’s history books. By the time the curtain came down on the MILLIONS Day 1A, after 18 20-minute levels, only 115 players remained in the hunt for the title and nobody had more chips in their stack than “jiggidyigjohn”.
MILLIONS Online Day 1A Top 10 Chip Counts
“jiggidyigjohn” is in a unique position in that they now have the chance to win an additional $1 million in the $20 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online. This is because they finished Day 1A as the chip leader and our special promotion promises an additional $1 million cash to the player who bagged the Day 1A chip lead if they go on to take down the MILLIONS Online tournament.
The race for the Day 1A chip lead was a tight one with “Triple Sexy” almost netting if for themselves, but narrowly missing out by accumulating 20,027,055 chips. Although they missed out on the lead, they have put themselves in a great position to put together a deep run in online poker’s richest single tournament.
Filatov Flying High
If you look at the current top 10 chip counts, you’ll notice a member of Team partypoker is on there. Anatoly “NL_Profit” Filatov has been in incredible form this year and his purple patch is showing no signs of ending any time soon. Filatov bagged up 14,616,878 chips at the close of play, enough for sixth-place on the overnight leaderboard.
Two of Filatov’s Team partypoker teammates also punched their Day 2 tickets at the first attempt. Isaac “Ike_Haxton” Haxton (7,918,252) and Joni “JJouhki” Jouhkimainen (2,952,633) both made it through the shark-infested field.
Roberto “R_Romanello” Romanello, Jason “Jason_Koon” Koon, Kristen “Krissyb24” Bicknell, Dzmitry “Dzmitry_Urbanov” Urbanovich, Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard, and Philipp “Phil_Gruissem” Gruissem all busted on Day 1A. As did Joao “XjoaosimaoX” Simao, Sam “SamTrickett” Trickett, Ludovic “Gr4vyBo4t” Geilich, Travis “DramaticDegen” Darroch, Richard “RichyDubini” Dubini, Nikita “fish2013” Bodyakovskiy and Jaime “jaimestaples” Staples. The need to fire another bullet if they want to become the 2019 MILLION Online champion.
