Today was the first of two Day 2s in the MILLIONS Main Event. At 12h00, 364 bags were placed on the tables, waiting for their rightful owner. Throughout the day, 137 buy-ins were placed, bringing the Day 2A total entries to 501.
Michael Sklenicka, who sent the biggest stack to day 2 – 10,195,000 – did not play today, but 2nd and 3rd, Sylvain Siebert and Tony Dunst, did. Tony Dunst had lost a good portion of his 8,050,000 when he got severely coolered with his few remaining millions. His bottom set was cruelly taken down by a top pair that turned into two pairs, that turned into a bigger boat.
Sylvain Siebert was the richest player to start the day, and loyal to himself, he rode the roller coaster, shrinking as small as 3M and springing back up to the bagged 14,550,000, one of the biggest stacks to be taken to Day 3, also a habit of his.
Brian Yoon had an unbelievable day, and bagged the monstrous amount of 24,910,000 chips. He will be hard to dislodge from the driver’s seat by any Day 2B player. The combined Day 2 results is updated now with all results from Day 2A.
The players were being eliminated a little too fast, and partypoker made the decision to cut a level off the day’s program. This means that Day 2B will also be shortened, for all players to merge on the same level, so if you are playing tomorrow, know that you will be able to celebrate a big bag earlier than expected!
Follow us tomorrow for another exciting day of Day 2 action!
