A total of 177 players will show up at the start of Day 2 of the $10,300 partypoker MILLIONS South America Main Event as the field combines for the first time in the Enjoy Punta del Este Resort & Casino in beautiful Punta del Este, Uruguay. Cards will be in the air at 12 noon local time.
The tournament already had a total of 323 entries made on Day 1a and Day 1b. Another 35 entries were made on Day 1+2 online for a combined 358 players. Late registration of the tournament is still open and players can reenter how many times they please for the first two levels of Day 2.
Fabrizio Gonzalez is in the lead at the start of Day 2 with 5,535,000 chips in play which accounts for about 185 big blinds as they start in level 9: 15,000/30,000 button ante 30,000. Six partypoker PRO players made it through to Day 2. Roberto Romanello (2,600,000), Ludovic Geilich (2,060,000), Dzmitry Urbanovich (1,860,000), Renato Nomura (1,795,000), Joao Simao (1,620,000), and Richard Dubini (1,250,000) all bagged chips to bring to Day 2.
Defending champion Marty Mathis is also still in the tournament with an impressive 3,995,000 in chips for about 133 big blinds. Mathis finished third in the Super High Roller two days ago where he won $213,750 and he won the Main Event in Rio de Janeiro at the 2019 partypoker MILLIONS South America. He won that for $873,700.
The plan is to play down to the money and to combine the field with the survivors of the online Day 1+2. How many players will reach the money will be announced after late registration closes.
