Seventeen top-tier players remain in the $10,300 High Roller Finale at the partypoker MILLIONS UK in the Dusk Till Dawn poker room in Nottingham. It’s time for the final day of this three-day event, with just 13 players getting in the money. That means that when play gets underway at noon local time, the bubble looms. Four players will still go empty-handed, missing out on the min-cash of $25,000 and, more importantly, a chance at even more and the trophy.
A total of 95 entries were registered for this event, meaning there was a slight overlay as the $1,000,000 wasn’t reached. Good news for the players but not at the top of their minds anymore, most likely, they are now focused on the $250,000 first-place prize.
Some of the top players in the world are still in contention with Igor Kurganov ahead of everyone else with a sizable margin. He’s followed by partypoker’s Joao Simao and John Duthie. Tibor Nagygyorgy (1,850,000), Sirzat Hissou (2,210,000), and Fahad Althani (2,370,000) are at the bottom of the counts.
When the action resumes, blinds will be 60,000 and 120,000 with a 120,000 big blind ante. We’ll bring you light coverage of this event throughout the final day with hourly chip counts and an extensive recap when a winner is crowned.
