Only 28 players remain in contention for the title of MILLIONS Online Main Event champion and two Team partypoker members are among them. Dzmitry Urbanovich and streamer extraordinaire Jaime Staples find themselves within touching distance of an $892,274 payout.

Urbanovich is the best place of our heroes courtesy of his 39,376,294 stack. This mountain of chips placed the Polish sensation in the middle of the pack in 14th place. Staples is not too far behind his teammate. The popular Canadian returns to the action in 19th place with 30,667,945 chips in his arsenal.
$892,000 for the win and there are 28 left in the @partypoker Millions Main event! 28!!!! I’ve been working 11 years for this moment.

A delighted Staples took to Twitter shortly after Day 2 concluded and said he has been waiting for a chance of a life-changing score like this for 11-years.
Valentyn Kazantsev of the Ukraine is the man to catch going into the penultimate day’s action. Kazantsev has 68,852,752 chips at his disposal and is one of four partypoker players with a stack in excess of 60 million chips.
Oliver Weis (66,475,886), Endrit Geci (62,331,105), and long-time Swedish grinder Jerry Odeen (60,600,259) being the other three players topping the scales at more than 60 million chips.
Justin Ouimette sits down at 19:05 GMT on March 2 with enough chips to currently occupy fifth-place. The Canadian won the MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event and is now in with a realistic chance of doing an unprecedented double and winning both the Mini and the Main Event.
Day 1B chip leader Peter Jetten (38,750,141) made it safely through to Day 3, as did his Day 1A counterpart Daniel Dvoress (17,684,505). other stars to look out for on the partypoker Twitch channel this evening include Epsen Uhlen Jorstad (35,938,389), Christian Rudolph (15,779,386), and the 2018 MILLIONS Online Main Event champion Manuel Ruivo (8,211,185) although the latter is the tournament’s shortest stack.
While 28 players punched their tickets to Day 3, 132 hopefuls fell by the wayside over the course of 10 30-minute levels.
Two Players Turn $5.50 Into Five-Figure Prizes
Martin Bremner qualified for this epic tournament from a $5.50 satellite but ran out of steam and finished in 123rd place. Bremner turned that mere $5.50 investment into an $11,490 haul.
Bremner’s fellow Brit, Alan Ford, also won his $5,300 MILLIONS Online seat for a paltry $5.50. Ford crashed out in 76th place, a finish good for $13,930. Awesome work by these two players in particular; they’re living proof our satellite players often reap massive rewards.
Day 2 proved to be the end of the road for a whole host of the game’s most recognisable players.
Luke Reeves was the first casualty of the day. The likes of Juha Helppi, Joseph Cheong, Aleksejs Ponakovs, and Team partypoker’s Kristen Bicknell, Jason Koon and Mikita Badziakouski all failed in their quests to make it to Day 3.
