Online poker’s biggest-ever single tournament continued on November 29th with MILLIONS Online Day 1B, the second of five starting flights. A total of 484 entries were processed by the time late registration had closed, taking the total attendance so far to 2,058.
MILLIONS Online Day 1B Top 10 Chips Counts
|3||Troy “good player” Quenneville||Canada||15,442,304|
|5||Shyam “S_dot111” Srinivasan||Canada||13,678,675|
Seventy-three of the 484 hopefuls punched their tickets for Day 2, which takes place at at 20:00 CET on Tuesday 4th December.
Argentina’s “patrondelmal” is the player who excelled the most on Day 1B, turning their 1,000,000 starting stack into a flight-leading 21,904,963. The Argentinian pipped New Zealand’s “Beezneez360” to the chip lead with Beezneez360 bagging up an impressive 21,808,451 stack at the end of the 20th level.
These monster-sized stacks place patrondelmal and Beezneez360 fourth and fifth in chips overall, with Team partypoker’s Philipp “Phil_Gruissem” Gruissem still leading the way courtesy of amassing 26,865,379 chips on last Sunday’s Day 1A.
Also safely through to Day 2 is Canada’s Troy “good player” Quenneville, who you may recall won the $2,500 partypoker Million at the 2016 partypoker WPT Caribbean in Punta Cana for $400,000 in 2016. Quenneville has done his chances of securing a $2.5 million prize in this event no harm after finishing Day 1B with 15,442,304 chips.
Slightly further down the chip counts is another Canadian in the shape of Shyam “S_dot111” Srinivasan on 13,678,675 chips, enough for fifth-place on the night. Srivivasan has been hugely successful in online poker tournaments during a long and illustrious career and has more than $9.6 million in online winnings, a figure he hopes to boost by $2.5 million by taking down MILLIONS Online.
Solid MILLIONS Online Day 1B Performances
Some of the other big-name players progressing from Day 1B include Swedish superstar Niklas “Drulitooo” Astedt (9,684,050) who is currently ranked first in the world by PocketFives.
Two members of Team partypoker navigated their way through the shark-infested waters of MILLIONS Online Day 1B. The legendary Sam “SamTrickett” Trickett fared the best, finishing with 5,576,388 chips, good enough for 35th place. Dzmitry “Dzmitry_Urbanov” Urbanovich joins Trickett on Day 2 and starts with 2,432,447 chips unless he fires another bullet and tries to bolster his Day 2 stack.
MILLIONS Online Day 1B didn’t exactly go to plan for seven other Team partypoker members as the were eliminated before the flight ended. Joni “JJouhki” Jouhkimainen, Roberto “WelshWizard” Romanello, Jason “Jason_Koon” Koon, Kristen “krissyb24” Bicknell, Ludovic “Gr4vyBo4t” Geilich, Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard and Renato “renatonomura” Nomura all failed to progress to Day 2 but will almost certainly be taking another bite at the cherry during the upcoming Day 1s.
Remaining MILLIONS Online Starting Flights
Three more starting flights are available for the $20 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online event. Players are permitted to play in as many Day 1s as they wish but can only take their largest stack through to Day 2 should they progress more than once. Each flight allows two re-entries, too.
The next few days are huge for online poker and are possibly the biggest three days in partypoker’s history. With your fantastic support, we can break through the $20 million guarantee barrier and write you into poker’s history books.
