partypoker MILLIONS hits £6m guarantee; Hoivold in great shape

By

EPT Dortmund champion Andreas Hoivold is in great shape as Day 3 of the partypoker MILLIONS Main Event kicks off today at Nottingham’s Dusk Till Dawn cardroom.

 

Lots of partypoker LIVE events coming up soon: Grand Prix Canada from April 25 – May 1, Grand Prix Dublin (April 28 to May 1), partypoker Million North America (May 5-10, $5m gte), partypoker Million Germany (June 1-5), partypoker Millions Russia (Sept 1-11).

 

Hoivold is currently lying third in chips with 17,855,000 and will be joined by 255 other Day 2 survivors including 36 players made it through after competing in San Remo, St. Vincent or Vienna.

 

There were 597 entries (including 46 reentries) in Nottingham yesterday – all chasing a guaranteed first prize of £1m. Combined with buy-ins from online qualifiers and players in partner casinos around Europe, the prize pool has reached £6,017,395 – just over the £6m guarantee. Every one of the 256 remaining players is now in the money and guaranteed at least £5,000.
