Sam Trickett Survives MILLIONS Online Day 1b

The second qualifying day of the $20million guaranteed partypoker MILLIONS Online may not have seen the record-breaking numbers of last weekends opening frenzy, but it still added almost 500 entries to the list, Sam Trickett and Dzmitry Urbanovich among those to make it through to day 2!

By: Andrew Burnett

Last Sunday’s opening flight saw a whopping 1,574 runners paying the $5,300 buy-in, adding up to $7,870,000 towards the massive prizefund, and yesterday’s addition cracked the 2000 player barrier – with this Sunday likely to boost that by quite some margin…

A total of 73 players made their way through from last night’s action, partypoker pro Sam Trickett among them, somehow managing to drag his mind away from the “big phat juicy” cash game that saw him win €300k the previous day.

Although no-one managed to catch Phillip Gruissem at the top of the chip counts, Argentina’s ‘patrondelmal’ came closest, and world number one-ranked MTT pro Niklas ‘Drulitooo’ Astedt also safely navigated his opening flight. A rack of partypoker’s own pro hopefuls will have to fire another bullet, however…

Patrick Leonard, Jason Koon, Kristen Bicknell, Roberto “WelshWizard” Romanello, Ludovic Geilich, Joni Jouhkimainen and Renato Nomura all fell at the first hurdle, despite in Romanello’s case some (not so) serious ghosting going on!

There are still three more starting flights to go, the final one on Tuesday afternoon a Turbo event before the survivors re-appear for day two.
