Preben Stokkan On Course for MILLIONS Online Main Event Title

2 months ago

The 2022 PartyPoker MILLIONS Online Main Event has reached its final table, and what a final table it is. Some 763 entrants created a guarantee-busting $2,289,000 prize pool and a first-place prize weighing in at $391,731. Right now, it is the United Kingdom-based Norwegian superstar that is Preben Stokkan that is in pole position going into the final table, which shuffles up and deals at 20:05 BST on September 27.

Day 2 saw 116 PartyPoker players return to the virtual felt, each having locked up at least $6,357 for their efforts. Top-tier professionals including Vlad Darie, Pascal Lefrancois, our very own Patrick Leonard and Jaime Staples, 2021 MILLIONS Online champion Endrit Geci, Fabian Quoss, and Diego Ventura all cashed but failed the reach the final table

Stokkan goes into the final table, which you can watch via our amazing Twitch channel, holding a commanding chip lead. He returns to the fray armed with a war chest of 224,613,105 chips, or more than 180 big blinds; that is how incredible the blind structure is in MILLIONS Online events.

Malta’s Taco De Goede is Stokkan’s closest rival, although he has more than 100 million fewer chips than the current leader. De Goede, whose namesake Pim De Goede chopped the 2018 MILLIONS Online Main Event, sits down with 121,436,502 chips.

Ole Schemion

Ole Schemion has reached yet another final table

Only two other finalists continue their quest for MILLIONS Online glory with more than 100 million chips in their stacks. The legendary Ole Schemion (117,511,166) is one of them, with Yannick Schumacher (115,808,985) being the other. Do not write off the chances of either of those two stars.

There’s quite the gap between Schumacher in fourth place and Jans Arends, who occupies fifth place. Arends topped the Day 1D chip counts and built on that early success to end Day 2 with 50,297,493 chips in his stack.

Lars Kamphues (44,639,748) and Alexandre Raymond (40,823,168) are the next two shortest stacks. Raymond deserves a round of applause because he is not only seventh in chips at this final table but also second in chips with 24 players remaining in the $320 buy-in MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event!

Eighth place is where you find the Spanish superstar Adrian Mateos (25,336,571), with Finland’s Eelis Parssinen (22,533,262) being the shortest stack, albeit with almost 19 big blinds at his disposal.

Franco Spitale Leads the MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event Going Into Day 3

Only 24 of the 2,196 starters remain in contention for the lion’s share of the $658,800 prize pool in the MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event. Argentina’s Franco Spitale is the man to catch, having ended Day 2 with a colossal stack of 258,168,649 chips.

Each of the returning 24 players has secured at least $2,616 for their efforts, but there is $100,480 awaiting the eventual champion, so nobody will be happy taking home the smaller amount.

The aforementioned Alexandre Raymond is the player hanging from Spitale’s coattails, doing so with 193,862,952 chips. Also in the top ten chip counts when the cards are back in the air are well-known grinders, including Leon Sturm (145,098,645), Luis Faria (137,324,146), and Sander Totuli (115,51,157), while the likes of Boris Angelov (69,566,272), Philippe D’Auteuil (56,792,822), and Charlie Combes (13,726,734) are still in the hunt.
