The first ever partypoker MILLIONS online champion was 'sordykrd', better known as Jon Van Fleet, even better known perhaps by his more common online poker name 'apestyles'.
The tournament veteran already had almost $8.5 million in online cashes prior to this event, but his $1,093,204 win for this tournament is almost ten times larger than his previous career biggest win.
The first partypoker MILLIONS online event did not go off without a hitch, as Day 1A of the event had to be 'rewound' after a technical error. It's so rare that online events have multiple days, but this one was mirroring the live tournaments of the same name.
The buy-in also mirrored their live events, costing $5,300 to enter and, along with the WCOOP Main Event at the same price point, shows that there is certainly a market for big buy-in online tournaments, as it attracted 1,027 entries.
partypoker MILLIONS returns next year starting in February with their German Main Event.
