OnlineMILLIONS Online

You know what they say about people who know how to throw a good party? For one, they have lots of fun and everyone knows their name. In this instance, partypoker knows how to host a rad online poker party with their MILLIONS Online series. Last year's event attracted a record setting prize pool worth almost $22 million. The suits at partypoker set out to top last year's record numbers with a few tweaks along the way.

This year's MILLIONS Online exceeded the $20 million guarantee, but the overall number od 2,108 fell short of breaking last year's record-setting mark of $21.8 million. The overall prize pool for 2019 topped $21 million...but barely. At least the $20 million overlay did not have to kick in.

Last year, Manuel Ruivo and Pim de Goede agreed to a heads-up money chop in the 2018 MILLIONS Online and both players banked over $2.3 million for outlasting a record field.

Big numbers showed up once again this year, which included multiple starting flights plus a turbo-charged final flight. When all the entries were tallied, a total of 2,108 players took a shot at the MILLIONS Online crown and it's $2.5 million guaranteed first place prize.

Heading into the final day of action, 27 players were remaining with several notable players still alive. Jungleman busted early on the final day, followed by Ike Haxton in 25th place.

BAPPA bubbled the final table with a ninth-place finish. The final table of eight included frenchsniperrr, Lucio, nomeansyes, Rank 1 Global, John_Duthie, Cloudking, PalPal012015, and BilLKluka.

John Duthie is a poker legend. The former TV director/editor and high stakes player conceived of the European Poker Tour almost two decade ago. The EPT became a reality back in 2004. Since then he migrated to partypoker to help guide their partypoker LIVE tour.

BilLKluka became the first player to exit the final table. Eight place paid out $316,350 for BilLKluka.

PalPal012015 hit the bricks in seventh place, which paid out a heady $474,525. PalPal012015 can buy a lot of his pals a ton of drinks and smokes for their score.

Cloudking's run ended when they busted in sixth place. How many online tournaments do you know that pays out nearly $660K for sixth place? Thank the folks at partypoker for the sick payout for Cloudking.

John Duthie's epic run ended in fifth place. He could not orchestrate a proper rally to get back into contention and bowed out in a highly-respectable fifth place. Duthie banked $869,962 for his sincere efforts. That will pay for a ton of massages, eh?

With Duthie gone, four platers were still alive and all four would bank at least $1.1 million for their sensational run to the Final Four in the MILLIONS Online.

nomeansyes $1,370,850

Rank 1 Global met their fate in fourth place, which paid out $1,107,225. Shortly after, nomeansyes made a final stand but failed to rally from behind to pull off a sick comeback. nomeansyes earned $1.37 million for third place.

With two remaining, the final two decided to chop the remaining prize money and play heads-up for the title and a little extra cash leftover on the table.

Lucio eventually busted in second place and earned over $2.22 million as per terms of the heads-up deal with frenchsniperrr. Heck, $2.2 million as a runner-up? Damn son, that's not too shabby!

Benjamin 'frenchsniperrr' Chalot banked $2,259,113 for his victory in the 2019 MILLIONS Online at partypoker.
