Another 493 players registered for partypoker MILLIONS Online Main Event in Day 1B, which means there was a total of 1,084 entrants that raised the prize pool to $5,420,000.
Same as in Day 1A there's another Canadian poker pro at the top of Day 1B, Peter Jetten who got a big boost of chips not long before the end of the first day. He entangled with partypoker’s Team member Mikita Badziakouski on a 377 board where Belarusian was holding QQ and Jetten got him beat with KK. All the chips went into the middle, but Badziakouski still qualified for Day 2.
