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.
