Day 1B of the $5 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online Main Event saw Andras Nemeth claim both the flight’s and overall chip lead after a stunning display at the partypoker tables.

Nemeth turned his 1,000,000 starting stack into a colossal, tournament-leading 27,423,305 as the 221 starters were whittled down to only 33 survivors. The Hungarian has eight figures worth of online poker tournament earnings, and has given himself the best possible chance of becoming the MILLIONS Online champion.

To give you some indication of how massive Nemeth’s stack is, Ukraine’s Dmitry Shubenok finished Day 1B in second place with 17,215,477 chips, over 10 million fewer chips than the leader!

Canada’s David Coleman bagged up 16,561,244 chips, enough for third place, while Viktor Ustimov finished Day 1B with 14,707,921 chips after winning his $5,300 MILLIONS Online Main Event seat in the latest Mega Satellite.

Novak Banks Massive Prize

Although not a numbered event, a $10,300 buy-in MILLIONS Online High Roller paid out some incredible prizes on December 19. Some 62 players bought in and created a $620,000 prize pool that the top 11 finishers shared.

New Zealand grinder David Yan was the unfortunate soul who burst the money bubble, locking in a min-cash of $24,682 for the surviving players. Stars including Talal Shakerchi and Pascal Lefrancois cashed, with Marius Gierse falling in eighth and setting the final table.

Russia’s Vladislav Ivanov busted in seventh for $29,909 and was joined on the rail first by Juan Pardo Dominguez ($34,611), then by Adrian Mateos (42,312), Vinh Tang Nguyen ($54,199), and Daniel Dvoress ($73,429).

Heads-up pitted Andrii Novak against Timothy Adams. The duo neglected to strike a deal despite the difference in prize money being more than $60,000. This lack of a deal meant Adams walked away with$109,830 when he lost the one-on-one battle with Novak, leaving Novak to pad his bankroll with an impressive $172,582.
