The partypoker MILLIONS Online Main Event continued yesterday which saw the conclusion of the final two starting flights as well as the event’s Day 2.
Across the starting flights, there were 1,041 total entries which generated a prizepool of $5,205,000, just eclipsing the guarantee. The first-place prize was confirmed as $859,019 and the 156 players who made it through to Day 2 had all secured a payday of at least $10,653.
Play wrapped up once the final table was established and Canada’s Sebastian Sikorski (245,686,151) ended the day as chip leader with a comfortable buffer between him and his closest rivals. Sikorski is the only player remaining with a stack north of 200 million with Ramiro Petrone (160,969,764) and Steven van Zadelhoff closest to him.
Day 1b chip leader Andras Nemeth also made the final table and sits in the middle of the pack with 105,769,317 chips. Igor Dursel, Fabio Luongo, Juan Pardo Dominguez, Christopher Brice and Orpen Kisacikoglu complete the list of names who are still in contention.
The final day of Main Event action gets underway on Tuesday, December 28 at 7:05 p.m. GMT with live stream coverage available on partypokerTV.

MILLIONS Online Main Event Day 2 Recap
In the penultimate Main Event flight, Day 1d, 20 of the 132 entrants progressed to the next stage with Dmitry Yurasov and Paul Tedeschi among the survivors. A further ten players then made it through to Day 2 in the turbo flight with the likes of Christoph Vogelsang, Anton Wigg and Conor Beresford all piloting a stack over.
Day 2 came to a close after Adrian Mateos bubbled the final table, he got the remainder of his chips in the middle against Van Zadelhoff and was at risk. Mateos had flopped a pair of jacks, good enough for top pair, but would need to hold against the flush draw held by his opponent. Van Zadelhoff made his flush on the turn to send the Spaniard out in tenth-place for $52,714.
Matthew Staples was the last partypoker ambassador standing, the popular poker streamer bowed in 41st place for $18,318. His brother, Jamie Staples, was also present on Day 2 but exited in the early stages to lock up a min-cash. The elder of the pair then went on to take down Event 7: MILLIONS Online Super 500 PKO: $500K Gtd to claim the title and $59,400 up top.
