Day 2 is in the books for the partypoker MILLIONS Europe €3,300 Main Event at Casino Barcelona with the 67 returning players dwindled down to just nine hopeful final tablists with Steve O’Dwyer holding the chip lead after bagging 70.4 million in chips.

O’Dwyer was among the short stacks late in the day until just before the dinner break when he doubled up through Matthias Lipp when his sevens won a flip against big slick.

Straight after the dinner break, O’Dwyer, who is in 14th place on The Hendon Mob All-Time Money List with more than $31 million in live tournament earnings, went on a tear eliminating three players with two tables left.

He delivered a bad beat to Marcin Kreft when his eights hit a set against queens before sending a short-stacked Lipp packing when his king-queen held against six-deuce suited.

Meanwhile, partypoker ambassador Matt Staples had an incredible run until O’Dwyer put an end to that too when his ace-queen held against ace-four. A four dropped on the flop but a five paired a turn along with an ace on the river to counterfeit his two pair.

Just behind O’Dwyer was Gergely Bartos with 70.1 million. Igor Picone (66.1 million), Luuk Gieles (57.3 million), Daniel Smyth (52.7 million), and Taras Khilko (47.8 million) all have healthy final table stacks. While nobody is below 20 big blinds, Jelle Moene (30 million), Duco ten Haven (27 million), and Pavel Brzeski (25.5 million) will be the shortest stacks when the final table kicks off on Sunday, June 12 at 1 p.m. CEST with it broadcasting shortly later with hole cards exposed at the partypokerTV Twitch and YouTube channels.

Remarkably, Khilko cashed twice in this event as being the only player to bag twice during the opening flight. He took home the 68th place prize of €5,000 and is lined up to earn a lot more.

Many big names were among the 67 players out of the 450-player field to advance to Day 2 but fall short of the final table including partypoker ambassador and stream host Jeff “MaximusBlack” Johnston, Steven van Zadelhoff, Christian Rudolph, Alex Lynskey, Georgi Sandev, Ottomar Ladva, and Day 1 chip leader Ramon Colillas, who was out within the first few hours of the day.

From One Penny to €11,000 for partypoker Qualifier Lukas Boubel

Lukas Boublel
Lukas Boubel

Lukas Boublel qualified for the partypoker MILLIONS Europe Main Event at partypoker for just $0.01. He was living the dream by coming to Barcelona, but unfortunately for him, he just busted out in 18th place for €11,000 after his big slick ran into aces.

Boublel came to the Catalonian capital with his girlfriend and has been truly taking in the experience as someone that typically plays low stakes. He shared that although he is disappointed that he didn’t go deeper with what he described as two mistakes because he was tired, after a quick break he relished in the fact that this was his biggest poker tournament cash.

“I was so excited to be playing with those I watch on TV like Steve O’Dwyer,” said Boublel.

Hopefully, for Boublel, this is the start of something big for the player from Montenegro. We certainly hope to see him at more partypoker events, as in addition to his strong play, he also is very friendly.

Final Table Payouts

The nine returning players are each guaranteed at least €2,900 with Sunday’s winner slated to go home with a whopping €250,000 top prize.

Matthew Staples Bubbles the Final Table 11.06.2022 23:33 by Jason Glatzer

Level 25: 600K/1.2M (1.2M)
Entries: 9/450

Matthew Staples jammed the cutoff for 10.9 million and was called by Pawel Brzeski from the small blind. Stephen O’Dwyer jammed for heaps from the big blind and Brzeski folded.

Matthew Staples: A 4
Stephen O’Dwyer: A Q

Staples was behind but pulled out ahead after his four paired up on the 4 2 5 flop. The 5 paired the board on the turn and jaws dropped around the room after the A hit the river to give both players aces over fives. O’Dwyer’s kicker was better and Staples bubbled the final table. Meanwhile, the pot allowed O’Dwyer to end the day as the chip leader with 70.4 million in chips.

Players are now bagging their stacks into tomorrow’s final table.

Stay tuned for the final table chip counts, seat draw, and recap of Day 2.

Final Table Bubble After Re Hit the Rail 11.06.2022 23:19 by Jason Glatzer

Level 24: 500K/1M (1M)
Entries: 10/450

The flurry of eliminations during Level 24 continued to the end as on the very last hand of the level Gabriele Re got his short stack in with king-seven against Daniel Smyth with nines.

It was looking good for Re to double after he improved to two pair on the K 7 2 flop. The Q turn was safe for Re but Smyth hit his two-outer on the river with the 9 completing the board.

With just 10 players left, the tournament is on the final table bubble and Day 2 will conclude as soon as one more player hits the rail.

Daniel Smyth – 35 million
Gabriele Re – 0

Lipp Loses His Short Stack 11.06.2022 23:15 by Jason Glatzer

Level 24: 500K/1M
Entries: 11/450

Another elimination just took place at the feature table. Matthias Lipp was down to just three big blinds when in the big blind when Stephen O’Dwyer jammed from the small blind. Lipp called and was behind with live cards.

Matthias Lipp: 6 2
Stephen O’Dwyer: K Q

The A 10 7 5 10 board wasn’t what Lipp was looking for and he was eliminated in 12th place for €18,900.

Gieles Takes the Lead with Cowboys 11.06.2022 22:57 by Jason Glatzer

Level 24:500K/1M (1M)
Entries: 12/450

Luuk Gieles opened for 2 million from early position before Gergely Bartos three-bet to 6 million from one seat over. Duco ten Haven four-bet shoved for about 60 million. Gieles called off for 36.4 million and ten Haven folded.

Luuk Gieles: K K
Duco ten Haven: A K

Gieles doubled into the chip lead after keeping safe on the 9 4 Q 8 4 board.

Luuk Gieles – 80 million
Duco ten Haven – 20 million

Brzeski Ousts Siljander 11.06.2022 22:52 by Jason Glatzer

Level 24: 500K/1M (1M)
Entries: 12/450

On the feature table, Mathias Siljander got his stack in for between 10-15 big blinds with nines against Pawel Brzeski with ace-jack.

Brzeski flopped Broadway, but Siljander was still in the hand after a nine hit the turn to give him a set. No quads or full house came for Siljander on a blank river and there were just a dozen people remaining after three quick eliminations since the dinner break.

Khilko Ousts Lynskey 11.06.2022 22:45 by Jason Glatzer

Level 24: 500K/1M (1M)
Entries: 13/450

Alex Lynskey just doubled up when he limped with jacks. Taras Khilko jammed for about 30 big blinds with big slick and Lynskey called off for about 20 bigs. An ace hit the flop and there was no save for Lynskey on either the turn or river. Lynskey was able to ladder up thanks to his earlier double for a €15,200 payout.

O’Dwyer Sends Kreft to the Rail on a Bad Beat 11.06.2022 22:41 by Jason Glatzer

Level 24: 500K/1M (1M)
Entries: 14/450

Marcin Kreft got his last 10 big blinds with queens against Stephen O’Dwyer with eights at the feature table. An eight spiked the turn and Kreft hit the rail on a bad beat.

Stephen O’Dwyer – 30 million
Marcin Kreft – 0

Lynskey Doubles Through Re 11.06.2022 22:36 by Jason Glatzer

Level 24: 500K/1M (1M)
Entries: 15/450

Alex Lynskey limped from the small blind before Gabriele Re raised to 2.7 million from the big blind. Lynskey three-bet jammed for 14.3 million and Re snap-called.

Alex Lynskey: 10 10
Gabriele Re: K J

It was looking like showers for Lynskey after Re’s king paired the 7 A K flop. Things got bleaker for Lynskey after the blank 8 turn. But the 10 river saved the day for Lynskey as it gave him a set of tens and he doubled his stack.

Alex Lynskey – 30 million
Gabriele Re – 14 million

Gergely Bartos: 9 9

Alonso lost the flip after not connecting with the 4 5 10 7 3 runout to hit the rail in 16th place for €12,800.

Level 21: 200K/500K (500K)

Sergio Alonso opened for 1 million from under the gun before Luuk Gieles flatted the button. Igor Picone three-bet jammed for about 14 million. Alonso folded and Gieles called.

Igor Picone: J J
Luuk Gieles: A K

Both Picone and Gieles were getting massages but things got heated up during the runout. Picone was ahead after the 10 2 10 flop but needed a miracle after Gieles’s ace paired the A turn. Help was on its way with the J spiking the river to Gieles’s complete disbelief to give Picone a double-up.

Level 21: 200K/500K (500K)
Entries: 19/450

Pawel Brzeski open-jammed for 6.4 million from under the gun before Andrea Ricci three-bet shoved over the top for 10.7 million. Duco ten Haven called both players and it was a three-way showdown with both Brzeski and Ricci at risk.

Pawel Brzeski: A J
Andrea Ricci: 8 8
Duco ten Haven: 10 10

Brzeski tripled up after his ace connected on the Q 4 6 A 3 board, while ten Haven’s tens won the side pot to eliminate Ricci in 21st place. Meanwhile, Ramon Miquel Muñoz was also eliminated at the feature table second later at another table to bring the field down to 19 players. It appeared to be able a 15 big blind three-bet jam with ace-jack only to run into ace-queen after he was called.

Gergely Kulcsar jammed for 5.9 million from the hijack before Stephen O’Dwyer came in over the top with a rejam to 7.4 million from the cutoff. Christophe Pommier four-bet jammed from the button for a bit more and it was a three-way showdown after the players in the blinds folded.

Gergely Kulcsar: A 7
Stephen O’Dwyer: J J
Christophe Pommier: A K

O’Dwyer’s jacks improved to a set but he wouldn’t have needed the jack anyway on the 7 Q 2 J runout to eliminate Kulcsar and double through Pommier.

Day 1 Chip Leader Ramon Colillas

Welcome to the penultimate day of the partypoker MILLIONS Europe Main Event at Casino Barcelona.

The event attracted 450 entries from both Online Day 1’s at partypoker and live opening flights with 67 players finding bags into Day 2. The prize pool reached a whopping €1,310,350 with the full payouts to be announced later today. All players advancing to Day 2 are already in the money for at least a min-cash of €5,000.

The structure is deeper on Day 2 than on the opening flights for two major reasons. First, blind levels will be pushed back to 60,000/120,000 with a big blind ante of 120,000 as this was the earliest one of the online flights finished. Second, the blind levels will increase every 50 minutes instead of every 40 minutes as was the case during the live opening flights.

Day 2 Top 10 Chip Counts

Ramon Colillas bagged the overall chip lead last night and will kick off the action with a massive stack of 18,245,000. Luuk Gieles, Vitalijs Korhs, Ermanno Di Nicola, and Georgi Sandev.

“From the Min to the Max” for Kassouf 10.06.2022 16:50 by Jason Glatzer

Will Kassouf often qualifies into events on the cheap and when he cashes his catchphrase is: “from the min to the max.”

He isn’t exactly at the max now but shared he is very happy to be slightly above a starting stack with 1,030,000 in chips after being down to 200,000 in chips a short while ago.

Kassouf chipped up a bit before he earned a full double-up. Kassouf shared with PokerListings how it went down.

Kassouf opened for 30,000 with ten-nine and got a call. He flopped trips on the nine-nine-four rainbow flop and his opponent check-called a bet by Kassouf for 45,000. The 6 on the turn put two clubs on the board. Kassouf’s opponent bet 125,000 before he called a jam by Kassouf for 425,000. Kassouf’s opponent held A 3 and was still alive with one card to come with a flush draw. The flush draw didn’t get there after the K river completed the board and Kassouf won the pot.

Will Kassouf – 1,030,000
