Yesterday’s Day 1a of the partypoker MILLIONS South America Main Event attracted a field of 155 entries, of whom 81 survived the eight levels. Today, another eight levels are scheduled with 1b getting underway at noon.
Once more, players get 1,000,000 in chips when they buy in for $10,300, with reentries available for those who bust. With the first level starting at 2,000 and 5,000 blinds, players signing up get 200 big blinds to battle with. Fabrizio Gonzalez trumped the competition yesterday, turning his one million into 5.5 million.
There’s a short 15-minute break after every two levels, with no dinner break scheduled. That means play will be done around 8:45 pm local time.
Today’s survivors will join Day 1a’s survivors for Day 2, where they will play on until the money phase is reached. All players making the money are joined on Day 3 of the partypoker MILLIONS South America Main Event by those having played their way to Day 3 online at partypoker.
