MILLIONS Online has nearly done the impossible. After another huge starting flight, the record-breaking tournament is so close to meeting the gargantuan $20,000,000 guarantee it can almost reach out and touch it.
Day 1D took place on Monday, December 3rd, with 707 more brave souls taking to the partypoker felt, eager to embark on an epic poker adventure in pursuit of gold ($2.5M) and glory (the coveted MILLIONS Online title). When combined with the three previous opening flights, this bumper crowd means that $19,385,000 of the $20,000,000 guaranteed prize pool has been gathered, with one final starting flight, the turbo Day 1E, taking place today.
Only 104 players from the 707 starters managed to battle through to Day 2, with nobody on Day 1D accumulating more chips than Germany’s “I am bored.” Tedium will be the last thing on his or her mind today as they return to battle today with 19,283,848 chips at their disposal, enough for seventh-place on the overall leaderboard with one flight remaining.
The top 10 chips counts from MILLIONS Online Day 1D are made up of players from all over the globe, showing how MILLIONS Online has captured the imagination of poker players worldwide. Croatia’s “Baniclvan” finished second in chips with 17,120,177 with “Polka_Dotted” of Ukraine bagging up 16,594,515 chips at the close of play.
Two Canadians in “Happy2k18” and “THEpeecee” ended Day 1D with 15,870,783 and 13,982,985, with three players who call the United Kingdom home navigating their way through to today’s Day 2, which starts at 20:00 CET, with a Day 1D top 10 stack.
MILLIONS Online Day 1E commences at 15:00 CET on December 4th and is the very last starting flight of this event. This last chance saloon flight will be using a turbo blind structure that sees the blinds increase every 12 minutes instead of the usual 24 minutes.
The last remaining Mega Satellite takes place at 13:00 CET and has 50 seats guaranteed. It will be the very last chance for players to win their way into online poker’s biggest-ever single tournament. Not sure if you're going to play? I can think of 2,500,000 reasons why you should...
