November Niner Ruzicka leads partypoker MILLIONS High Roller

By Mad Harper

November Niner Vojtech Ruzicka is leading the final four in the chase for a £320,000 first prize in the £10k High Roller at partypoker MILLIONS.

 

Day 1e of the Main Event is today and we have hotels in Nottingham - so don't miss one of the most exciting events of the year!

 

The Czech pro, who finished fifth at the WSOP last year for £1,935,288, has 4,198,000, giving him a healthy lead over Poland’s Bartlomiej Machon on 3,059,000 and British players Tom Hall on 1,943,000 and Chris Backhouse on 1,798,000. There were 110 entries in all (including four new Day 2 players and 13 re-entries) with 11 players getting a share of the £1,067,000 prize pool. Start-of-day chip leader Niall Farrell bust before the money.

 

The tournament was due to end last night but after 15 hours of poker – and four still left at 4am – it was decided to go into an unscheduled extra day to play to a winner. All four remaining are guaranteed at least £139,900. Play resumes at 3pm with a cards-up live stream on Twitch (on 30 min delay).
