Day 1 of the MILLIONS High Roller Finale ended with 54 players bagging chips for Friday’s session. Those players will return to Level 7 and play will begin Friday at 12:00 PM local time.
With late registration open through Level 10, the MILLIONS High Roller Finale – which boasts a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool – will grow over night and tomorrow after play resumes. The Poker Central Live Reporting team will resume coverage then and a complete list of the remaining player’s counts will be posted before the restart.
The MILLIONS High Roller Finale is back from the final break of Day 1A and over the last few hours the field has nearly eclipsed the century mark. 90 players are currently registered – with just over two-thirds of the field remaining.
Brock Wilson – who finished 2nd in this week’s $25,000 MILLIONS Super High Roller – recently entered and he’ll try to record another Caribbean Poker Party cash. The runner-up finish netted Wilson just shy of $620,000, which was a career-best score for the American pro.
After winning the WSOP Europe Main Event in 2018, Jack Sinclair went on a partypokerLIVE heater – recording three MILLIONS Main Event cashes over the next nine months. He failed to add a fourth Main Event cash this week, but he’ll hope another $10,000 buy-in event has his name on it.
partypoker pros Rob Romanello and Jeff Gross are also in the mix. Romanello won a MILLIONS High Roller during last year’s Caribbean Poker Party for $450,000 and final tabled the MILLIONS World Europe Main Event in Rozvadov this past summer, while Gross final tabled the €10,000 MILLIONS High Roller during that same Rozvadov series.
The MILLIONS High Roller Finale field is back from the first break of the day and 45 players have retaken their seats in the back of the tournament area. The field has slowly grown over the last two hours and we expect some continued growth over the next four.
Another 15-minute break will break up those four levels – with the bags coming out after Level 6.
Play is underway in the $10,000 buy-in MILLIONS High Roller Finale. Five tables are open to start and over 30 players have entered through the first level. With late registration open through Day 2, we expect to see this field continue to grow over the next few levels and on the overnight.
Of the players seated from the start – most have already made their Caribbean Poker Party debuts, in a variety of events including Super High Roller Bowl Bahamas. Opren Kisacikoglu failed to cash in that opening event – but hasn’t missed much since. He cashed the first MILLIONS High Roller and then final tabled the MILLIONS Super High Roller for a $135,000 score.
While Lauren Roberts didn’t play in this edition of Super High Roller Bowl, the high stakes regular is one of two women to ever play the event. Kathy Lehne did all she could to become the first female player to ever win Super High Roller Bowl – but she had to settle for third place after a historic final table run.
Enough about runs, what about run stoppers? Richard Seymour anchored the New England Patriots defensive line through three Super Bowl winning seasons and he’s been battling in Baha Mar over the last week. Two of Seymour’s best career tournament scores are in $10,000 buy-in events and a third – in this event – would add another storyline to an already star-studded Caribbean Poker Party.
There was a close call at the Super High Roller Bowl Bahamas final table and there were a handful of close calls on the World Poker Tour before Ema Zajmovic became the first woman to win an open WPT event in 2017. Zajmovic then followed that win with a runner-up finish in the partypoker WPT Montreal Main Event in 2018 – which remains her best career result.
Updates will continue throughout today’s six scheduled levels, with a full rundown of the Day 1 survivors after Level 6.
The Caribbean Poker Party may be hitting the home stretch, but that doesn’t mean that the high stakes action is even close to finished. As Day 2 of the MILLIONS World Main Event plays into the money, another $10K event begins at 5:00 PM local time.
The MILLIONS High Roller Finale will feature a $1,000,000 guarantee and a three-day structure. Players will begin play with 1,000,000 chips and each level will last 60 minutes. This event also offers unlimited re-entry through the first 10 levels – the last four of which will be played on Day 2.
Day 1 will conclude after Level 6 and the Poker Central Live Reporting team will provide updates from the floor throughout the opening day, with expanded coverage across the final two days of play.
