France's Vincent Cavailles will head into the second and final day of the partypoker MILLIONS Europe €10,300 High Roller after parlaying his opening stack of 1 million in chips to nearly 2.4 million.

Cavailles entered the tournament with more than $300,000 in live tournament earnings as tracked by The Hendon Mob and was the only player of the tidy field of five entries to late-register on Day 1.

Three other players, all from the Netherlands, also found a bag on the opening day including Teun Mulder (1,677,000), Luuk Gieles (516,000), and Jelle Moene (411,000).

Estonian chess grandmaster and high-stakes poker tournament player Ottomar Ladva was less fortunate than this bunch as he wasn't able to make it past Level 4. Ladva first ran into a Gieles' flush before suffering a bad beat for the rest of his stack when his cowboys didn't hold against tens with all the chips in the pot before the flop.

While Ladva opted not to re-enter on Day 1, he may decide to hop into the action on Thursday's Day 2 with late registration open for the first five levels of the day. The field is expected to grow on Day 2 with a handful of players already confirming they will hop into the action including Steve O'Dwyer.

A televised feature table will also be broadcasted on Day 2 on the partypokerTV YouTube and Twitch channels. It is expected to go live on delay with hole cards exposed after late registration is closed.
