Patrick Leonard Wins The Grand MILLIONS Online Edition!

20 days ago

Football fans often chant “he’s one of our own” to their homegrown players at matches and it is PartyPoker’s time to sing that tune because Team PartyPoker’s Patrick Leonard is a MILLIONS Online champion! The super-popular British star was the last player standing in the MILLIONS Online edition of The Grand, a fantastic result that saw the balla take home a cool $29,731.

Leonard is in hot form right now, having captured his first World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet in Las Vegas this summer. Now he is transferring his live run-good to the virtual felt, and that spells bad news for anyone who finds themselves on his table.

MILLIONS Online #07 The Grand saw 152 players fight it out for a slice of the $151,633 prize pool. Dozens of elite-level grinders flexed their muscles in this event, but only 27 of them finished in the money places.

Sami Kelopuro, Ivan Luca, Joakim Andersson, Nacho Barbero, Niklas Astedt, Elio Fox, and another of our own Matthew Staples busted before the money places. Brazil’s Denny Ramos was the unfortunate soul who popped the all-important money bubble, busting in 28th place with 27 paid.

Among those who saw a return on their investment included former Irish Open champion Dan Wilson, flying Finn Samuel Vousden, Christian Rudolph, and Team Online’s Jaime Staples.

The final table was an international affair, with six nations represented by some stellar names. Tauan Naves and Gustavo Mastelotto, both of Brazil, were the first pair of players to hit the rail. Carlos Villamarin of Canada fell next, before MILLIONS Online Opener PKO champion Vojtech Skalak fell by the wayside in sixth. Skalak’s fellow Czech, Jiri Lipina, busted in fifth.

Johannes Straver saw his tournament end in fourth place for $10,134, the event’s first five-figure sum. Then came the untimely demise of Ukraine’s Andrii Derzhypilskyi in third, worth $14,653.

Leonard found himself heads-up against Leonard Maue in a one-on-one battle for the title, the lion’s share of the prize pool, and the glory. Our hero defeated his Austrian opponent to receive all three of those things, his prize money tipping the scales at $29,731. Maue collected a $20,745 consolation prize.

The MILLIONS Online edition of The Grand runs again this week. The Phase Final costs $1,050 to buy into, but you can play your way in from as little as $0.01! Your entry route into this amazing tournament goes $0.01 > $1.10 > $11 > $109 > $1,050. Good luck!

Mattsson Among the Main Event Day 1B Survivors

Day 1B of the MILLIONS Online #05 Main Event saw another 117 PartyPoker players exchange $3,200 for one million chips and the chance to become this event’s worthy champion. Only 18 of those starters punched their Day 2 tickets, and nobody bagged up more chips than Swedish superstar Simon Mattsson.

Mattsson finished Day 1B of the $2 million guaranteed Main Event with 16,010,939 chips, which are enough for third place overall, with four flights remaining.

The Day 1B survivor list is littered with household names from around the globe. Such luminaries as Joni Jouhkimainen, Alexandros Theologis, Ivan Luca, Tomi Brouk, Robert Heidorn, and former Caribbean Poker Party Online Main Event champion Diego Ventura.

A special mention goes to the aforementioned Theologius, who also bagged a top ten stack in the $320 MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event Day 1B field; what a guy!

Olson Bags Mini Main Event Overall Chip Lead

Day 1B of the $320 MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event drew in another 338 PartyPoker players, and 51 of those navigated their way to Day 2. That takes the total attendance through two of six flights to 583, with 88 players safely through to Day 2 on September 26.

Sweden’s Emil Olsson finished Day 1B with 18,614,212 chips, which were not only enough to become the flight’s chip leader, but he now leads the Mini Main Event overall. Indeed, the top six Day 1B leaders are currently the top six overall.

Mathias Siljander finished his flight with a top 10 Day 1B stack. Finland’s Siljander won a MILLIONS Online KO title in May, and excelled at the recent MILLIONS Europe festival in Barcelona.

Team Online’s Matthew Staples progressed with almost 11 million chips, while the likes of Leon Sturm, Sami Kelopuro, former WPT Slovenia champion Miha Travnik, Sylvain Loosli, Roland Rokita, and Fabio Sperling are also into the money places.

MILLIONS Online and Side Event Results So Far

Dozens of PartyPoker players have helped themselves to MILLIONS Online and side event titles since the first cards shuffled up and dealt. The $71,466 won by Vojtech Skalak in the Opener PKO is still the largest prize to date, but with the Super 500 and Super 100 finales approaching, that sum could be blown out of the water.

Shout-out to Emil Olsson, who not only leads the Mini Main Event but has two side event victories under his belt. The talented Swede won a $320 buy-in 6-Max Turbo PKO for $8,506 and a 7-Max Turbo PKO for an additional $5,672!
