Day 1C of the $5 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online Main Event took place on December 26, better known as Boxing Day. While people around the world were tucking into their Christmas dinner leftovers, 237 partypoker players exchanged $5,300 for 1,000,000 chips in the MILLIONS Online Main Event. Thirty-six of those progressed to Day 2, but nobody did so with more chips than Jamie O’Connor.
O’Connor is a British pro who has more than $4 million in online poker tournament cashes plus another $1 million from his live poker grind. The popular Yorkshireman excelled on Day 1C, turning his 1,000,000 starting stack into 20,280,565 chips. This colossal stack not only earned O’Connor the title of Day 1C chip leader, but places him second overall. Only Andras Nemeth, with 27,425,305 chips, has more than O’Connor.
There were plenty of household names who punched their Day 2 tickets from this flight. Kevin Rabichow and Bujtas Laszlo bagged up 15,481,601 and 14,992,202 chips respectively, placing them second and third from this flight.
Also in the top 10 were the likes of New Zealand’s Joshua McCully (13,362,081), Orpen Kisacikoglu (9,825,062), and Bulgarian star Fahredin Mustafov (9,304,367).
Slightly down the chip counts but still with a legitimate chance of becoming the latest MILLIONS Online Main Event champion are superstars such as Steven Van Zadelhoff (8,100,826), Stephen Chidwick (6,564,743), Michael Addamo (6,042,203), and our very own Patrick Leonard (5,792,738) and Mikita Badziakouski (3,735,887).
