We did it! The 2019 MILLIONS Online not only hit its $20 million guarantee but surpassed it by $1,090,000 making it the second-largest prize pool in online poker history, trailing only the 2018 edition of MILLIONS Online.
This remarkable achievement would not have been possible without your incredible support s a heart-felt thank you to each and every one of you who played in MILLIONS Online satellites, the four Day 1s, and supported partypoker in this game-changing event.
AlisonBurgers Excels on MILLIONS Online Day 1C
Day 1C saw 377 entrants whittled to only 69 hopefuls over the course of 18 levels. “AlisonBurgers” bagged up the most chips, 16,946,339 of them, to claim the Day 1C chip lead.
Five other players ended the third starting flight with a stack weighing in at eight-figures. “CocaineKiller” (14,613,509), “DunningKruger” (13,074,890), “BierKapitaen” (13,041,357), “I_G0T_DA_POT” (11,097,886), and “Van_Vian_Van” (10,616,142) being that sextet.
Plethora of Team partypoker Members Progress From Day 1D
The final flight, the turbo blind structured Day 1D saw an impressive 324 players take to the partypoker tables. They also played 18-levels, albeit of 10-minutes each instead of 20-minutes, and 85 players survived to make it to Day 2.
Team partypoker’s Jeff “JeffGross” Gross and Kristen “krissyb24” Bicknell both scraped through with slightly more chips than the 1 million starting stack, while Jason “Jason_Koon” Koon, Philipp “Phil_Gruissem” Gruissem, and Roberto “R_Romanello” Romanello also progressed from this flight.
“nomeansyes” finished Day 1D as the chip leader courtesy of a 12,056,135 stack. “Semen Suarez” (11,224,966) and “PearlQR” (10,515,887) were other big stacks.
Day 2 commenced with 383 players and 300 of those received a slice of the $21,090,000 pie.
Things didn’t go to plan for Joao “XjoaosimaoX” Simao as he fell in 382nd place. Gross also fell early door in 379th, with Koon crashing out in 360th. Gruissem and Joni “JJouhki” Jouhkimainen went a little deeper, the latter falling in 317th place and narrowly missing out on a cash.
MILLIONS Online Money Bubble Bursts
“MCvisitor” was the unfortunate soul who burst the money bubble, their 301st place finish locking up at least $21,900 for the remaining 300 players.
Romanello banked $23,726 for his 250th place finish, while Bicknell managed to spin her stack up enough to navigate her way to 240th place which was worth $26,362.
The next Team partypoker players to dust off their stacks were Dzmitry “Dzmitry_Urbanov” Urbanovich and Anatoly “NL_Profit” Filatov who walked away with $36,907 and $39,543 respectively.
Day 1A Chip Leader Crashes Out
Our poker room manager Chris Donnachie breathed a sigh of relief when “jiggidyjigjohn” busted in 42nd place for $52,725. That player had finished Day 1A as the chip leader and would, therefore, win an additional $1 million if they had gone all the way and taken down the 2019 MILLIONS Online event. Still, this was a fantastic performance.
We still have two Team partypoker members in the final 27, and they return to action at 2130 CET on December 10th.
Isaac “Ike_Haxton” Haxton finds himself 27th from the returning 27 players as he has 27,283,149 chips in his stack, or a shade over nine big blinds. President of partypoker LIVE John “John_Duthie” Duthie is in better shape with 71,096,126 chips (23.7 big blinds), which places him 13th at the restart.
“Rank 1 Global” is the player to catch when play resumes in the MILLIONS Online event later today. They have 181,516,230 chips in their stack (60.5 big blinds) and are on course for the colossal $2,636,250 top prize.
Day 1D chip leader nomeansyes is second in chips with 163,116,128 betting tokens, while four other stars have more than 100 million chips at the restart.
Each of the 27 returning players is guaranteed $63,270 for their effort this far. The first six-figure prize is awarded to the 16th place finisher ($121,267) while anyone reaching the eight-handed final table will win at least $316,350.
Our top four finishers, like last year, become millionaires! Fourth-place is worth $1,107,225, third-place nets $1,370,850 while the runner-up pads their bankroll with $1,845,375. Our champion is set to scoop an amazing $2,636,250!
