When Day 1 of the PokerStars Sunday Million 14th Anniversary event ended on Sunday night, there were 85,432 entries with late registration open for another 16 hours. By the time registration closed on Monday afternoon, another 7,584 players had managed to register to push the final number to 93,016.
That put the final prize pool at $18,603,200 – the third largest online poker tournament of all-time and the largest one ever held on PokerStars. Only the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS Online ($21.78 million) and the 2019 partypoker MILLIONS Online ($21.09 million) had larger prize pools.
More than 20,000 players were in action when Day 2 began and after eight hours of action, just 91 players remain in the hunt for the $1,509,390.01 first-place prize. Leading the way is Canada-based player ‘meandmyarrow‘ with 59,709,692. Sitting in second is Finland’s ‘Arlingtona‘ with 55,018,866. Third place belongs to Cyprus-based player ‘akamas73‘ with a stack of 46,500,346.
A number of familiar faces entered Day 2 dreaming of winning it all but had those dreams dashed too soon for their liking. Former #1-ranked Matt ‘ch0ppy’ Kay finished in 121st place, Vicente ‘vicenfish’ Delgado Zamorano came in 139th, Pascal ‘Pass_72’ LeFrancois finished 145th, each earning $9,260.67. Robin ‘robinho’ Ylitalo was eliminated in 294th place for $5,664.67.
The third and final day of play begins at 1 pm ET and is scheduled to play down to a winner.
