The first day of the MILLIONS UK Super High Roller was very entertaining and ended with Luke Reeves leading comfortably in chips. The MILLIONS partypoker’s biggest buy-in event started with a total of 23 entries. But other players will be able to make their late registration for the first two levels during day 2, so that more professionals participate in search of the first prize of the British festival.
As expected, the event was attended by some of the best players in the United Kingdom: Sam Grafton, Ben Heath, Christoph Vogelsang and Alex Foxen. It was a day with a lot of action
A good day for many
At the end of the day Reeves accumulated more chips for a total of 5,160,000, that is, five times more than the initial stack of 1,000,000 chips. But the British player was not the only one to accumulate a large pile at the end of the game, as Preben Stokkan achieved 2,685,000, followed by Kristen Bicknell with 2,455,000 and the Russian Igor Kurganov with 2,380,000.
If Bicknell and Alex Foxen will face each other head-to-head it would be a real show, even if this represents a hard blow to the partypoker at the opening of 2020 live for the final table of MILLIONS UK at PokerGO.
Without doubt the most important action of the day was the mega chip achieved by Reeves in the last hand with which the game ended. The head-to-head between Reeves and Michael Zhang was a tough battle in which the German player Rainer Kempe was taken out of the way. That happened just before the two biggest weapons in the game came into action before the flop.
Reeves pocket aces were superior to Zhang’s pocket kings. The top ten gave no hope to Zhang.
Day 2 promises as much or more excitement as this with the participation of great players such as Mikita Badziakouski (2,250,000) and Rainer Kempe (1,985,000) that remains in the race.
After Day 10 of the $ 10,300 Main Event, more players are expected to fire this $ 25,000 Super High Roller again,
