2021 MILLIONS Online Main Event Champion Geci Through to Day 2 in 2022
Nobody has managed to win the PartyPoker MILLIONS Online Main Event more than once, but that could be set to change thanks to Endrit Geci progressing to Day 2 of the $3,200 buy-in $2 million guaranteed Main Event.
Geci won the MILLIONS Online Main Event in March 2021. The tournament was a $5,300 buy-in affair when Geci won, which is why his impressive victory came with $774,838, a prize the talented British star called life-changing. Now Geci has a realistic shot at winning the MILLIONS Online Main Event for a second time because he progressed from Sunday’s Day 1D in second place with 14,427,793 chips, which are enough for seventh-place overall right now.
Only Jans Arends bagged up more chips than Geci at the end of Day 1D. Arends’ 18,950,287 stack put him at the top of the 33 Day 1D survivors from a field of 217 entrants. Arends with a big stack spells bad news for anyone unfortunate enough to find themselves at his Day 2 table.
Others who punched their Day 2 tickets from the Day 1D flight include Ognyan Dimov (11,828,490), Joao Vieira (10,365,370), David Yan (8,995,546), Mike Watson (4,034,281), Pascal Lefrancois (2,017,447), and Adrian Mateos (1,344,678).

Hellmuth, Not The One, Tops Mini Main Event Day 1D Field
Fire up the $320 buy-in $500,000 guaranteed MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event Day 1D lobby and be prepared to double-check the man at the top of the chip counts. A quick glance reveals Hellmuth was the chip leader with 23,400,322 chips, although it is the United Kingdom’s Martin Hellmuth and not the 16-time World Series of Poker bracelet champion with the same surname!
Hellmuth was one of two Day 1D players to finish the night with more than 20 million chips. Hellmuth bagged up 23,400,322 chips, while Daniel Smiljkovic returns to the action with 21,905,166 chips at his disposal. Both players have huge stacks, yet still trail Paul Hoefer overall, as the Austrian’s arsenal contains 27,477,141 chips.
Some 99 of the 658 Day 1D starters made it through to Day 2. They include Rayan Chamas (15,232,942), Claas Segebrecht (14,339,426), former Irish Open champion Daniel Wilson (13,177,633), Gianluca Speranza (10,791,205), Jans Arends (6,029,662), and Jessica Teusl (3,800,702).
