Only Three MILLIONS Online KO Edition Main Event Day 1s Remain

1 month ago

Time is rapidly running out if you want to become the inaugural partypoker MILLIONS Online KO Edition Main Event or Mini Main Event champion because only three flights remain in each. Buy in direct, SPINS your way to a seat, or win one via the many Mega Sats running throughout the weekend, just do not miss your chance of becoming a MILLIONS Online KO Edition Main Event champion and getting your hands on a massive prize.

$1 Million Gtd Main Event

Some 626 players have battled it out in the first three flights of the $1,050 buy-in $1 million guaranteed Main Event. Of those starters, only 94 have made it through to Day 2, doing so having locked up a min-cash from the main prize pool in addition to any bounties they banked during their Day 1.

Malta-based Belgian Michael Gathy is the chip leader going into the weekend. The four-time WSOP bracelet winner finished his flight with 17,734,856 chips. Gathy has already collected $1,750 in bounties, too!

The rest of the Day 2 field reads like a who’s who of the poker world, as you would expect from such a prestigious tournament. Here are the top ten after Day 1C.

Place Player Country Bounties Chips
1 Michael Gathy Malta $1,750 17,734,856
2 Pablo Brito Silva Brazil $1,687 16,527,193
3 Jesus Ucero Estonia $1,875 16,377,852
4 Simon Mattsson Sweden $2,250 15,720,010
5 Jonathan Proudfoot United Kingdom $1,937 14,282,170
6 Joshua McCully New Zealand $2,312 14,077,248
7 Lukas Gloor United Kingdom $2,312 13,846,655
8 Gabriel De Moura Brazil $3,625 13,314,164
9 Joao Ferreira Mexico $1,437 12,934,767
10 Gabriele Re Brazil $2,250 12,827,411

$500,000 Gtd Mini Main Event

It is a similar story in the Mini Main Event which is only mini in name because there is a $500,000 guarantee on its prize pool. From Day 1A to 1C, some 2,468 players have bought in and put $246,800 into the prize pool. That means less than half of the guarantee has been collected, and could result in extra value to entrants through an overlay.

Only 358 players have made it through to Day 2 thus far, and nobody has more chips than Czech star Daniel Budin. He finished his flight with an incredible 27,291,741 chips and $368 worth of bounties. Only Joshua North of the United Kingdom (22,862,633) has at least 20 million chips from their one million starting stack.

Place Player Country Bounties Chips
1 Daniel Budin Czech Republic $368 27,291,741
2 Joshua North United Kingdom $437 22,862,633
3 Kevin Bergeron Canada $255 18,975,971
4 Jacob Stone United Kingdom $218 18,381,293
5 Kim Kock Denmark $318 17,938,044
6 Bengt Loof Sweden $150 17,906,741
7 Daniel Weiss Germany $187 17,893,065
8 Alex Basford United Kingdom $281 16,414,880
9 Paul Hizer United Kingdom $278 16,210,586
10 Daniel Wilson United Kingdom $181 16,206,412
