Time Is Running Out To Qualify for the MILLIONS Online Main and Mini Main Event

18 days ago

Poker players are notorious for being late to the party (here’s looking at you Phil Hellmuth) but now is not the time to hang around if you have ambitions of becoming the PartyPoker MILLIONS Online Main Event or Mini Main Event champion. Why? Because time is rapidly running out if you want to secure your seat for far less than the $3,200 and $320 buy-ins.

MILLIONS Online #05 Main Event

Day 1A and 1B of the $3,200 buy-in $2 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online Main Event are in the bag, and so far nobody has managed to get anywhere near as many chips as Gabriele Re. They finished Day 1A with a quite ridiculous 27,674,473 chips, with their nearest rival, Brazilian sensation Rodrigo Sirichuk, in second place with 17,229,755. You quest, if you choose to accept it, is to catch the runaway Re at the top of the current leaderboard.

1 Gabriele Re Malta 27,674,473

8 Diego Ventura Peru 9,770,018
9 Sergio De Pedro Estonia 9,628,438
10 Tomi Brouk Finland 9,557,982

Some 41 of the 269 players who have bought into the MILLIONS Online Main Event are through to Day 2 with a min-cash in tow. In addition to Re and Sirichuk, superstars Simon Mattsson, Caribbean Poker Party Online Main Event champion Diego Ventura, Elio Fox, former MILLIONS Online Main Event winner Jon Van Fleet, and our very own Jaime Staples are through to the business end of the tournament.

Your best chance of joining these top-tier players is via the next available Mega Sat, which happens to take place at 17:05 BST on September 18. This amazing satellite has 15x $3,200 Main Event seats guaranteed to be won. You cannot buy into the satellite direct, you must play your way into it via the lower buy-in phases. Those phases come with buy-ins starting at only $0.01 and eventually feed into the $109 Phase 2. Progress from Day 2 and you take your chips through with you into the final where the 15 Main Event tickets await.

MILLIONS Online #06 Mini Main Event

The $320 buy-in $500,000 guaranteed MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event is also in full swing with two of its six scheduled Day 1s done and dusted. Some 583 PartyPoker players have bought in so far but only 88 have navigated their way to Day 2. Will you be among the next batch of Mini Main Event players guaranteed a return on their investment?

Sweden’s Emil Olsson is the man to catch after turning his 1 million starting stack into a tournament leading 18,614,212 on Day 1B over the weekend. Others to look out for on Day 2 when your silky skills get you there include four-time WSOP bracelet winner Michael Gathy, Team Online’s Matthew Staples, recent 7-Max PKO Championship winner Sami Kelopuro, and former November Niner Sylvain Loosli.

Like its $3,200 buy-in bigger brother, the MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event has another flight on September 18 at 19:05 BST. Two hours before it starts, there is a satellite guaranteeing no less than 30x $320 seats!

There is no direct buy-in to this final, but the most you will pay to get into it is an affordable $11, although there are centrolls running costing only $0.01.
