Jeremy Pantin Leading the Pack after Day 2 of the partypokerLIVE MILLIONS in Nottingham
Another fantastic day of tournament poker is in the books at Dusk Till Dawn, Nottingham, where Day 2 of the partypokerLIVE MILLIONS £5,300 Main Event kept staff, dealers and hundreds of players busy throughout the afternoon and evening.
The 1,240 entries from qualifiers and direct buy-ins along with the many buy-ins from online qualifiers and satellites hosted in partner casinos around Europe, have totaled a combined prize pool of £6,017,395, eclipsing the guaranteed £6,000,000. Every one of the remaining 220 players from today, as well as the 36 players that already advanced to Day 3 from playing in either San Remo, St. Vincent, or Vienna, are guaranteed a payout of £5,000. The final prize distribution is yet to be worked out by the number crunchers at Dusk Till Dawn and will be released on Day 3.
When Day 3 commences, local player Jeremy Pantin will be the man to beat.
When Day 3 commences, local player Jeremy Pantin will be the man to beat. Pantin managed to bag up no less than 20,915,000 chips, equating to more than 170 big blinds when the tournament clock starts its countdown with blinds at 60,000-120,000 (10,000 ante).
Other big stacks include Stephen Chidwick (13,230,000), Iaron Lightbourne (12,600,000), and Jan-Eric Schwippert (11,400,000), while at least three partypoker Ambassadors, Mike Sexton (10,050,000), Tony Dunst (2,485,000) and Anatoly Filatov (approximately 1,800,000) are still in contention for the MILLIONS title.
Also through in the very top is UK based Spaniard and online pro Vicente Delgado (15,885,000). He overtook the chip lead late in the day thanks to two big hands against Steven Warburton. In one of the biggest pots of the day, Delgado flopped a set of sixes and succeeded in getting Warburton to commit his chips on the turn with top pair and a gutshot. Delgado did lose a couple of million chips during the last level of play but is still sitting comfortably with close to three times the chips of an average stack.

Unfortunately, Day 2 was also the end of the road for some household poker names. Thomas Muehloecker, Martin Kabrhel, Johnny Lodden, Sam Grafton, Dominik Panka, Jason Wheeler, Niall Farrell and Charlie Carrel were all sent to the rail during the first seven levels play. Shortly before the end of the day, David Vamplew joined them after busting in spectacular fashion. The EPT London champion ran kings into the Aces of Ludovic Geilich. Despite the elimination, Geilich wasn't able to make it through either, as he failed to get away from top pair against an opponent's set shortly after.
According to the screens, there were 220 players remaining after Day 2, and they will be joined by 36 qualified players from other live venues. The recipe for tomorrow is the same as it was today - 8 levels of 75 minutes, good for a total 10 hours of play. Don't forget to tune in again tomorrow at 1 pm local time as another exciting day of poker awaits and you can follow along inthe dedicated live reporting blog. The PokerNews live reporting team will, of course, be on site to bring you all the action.

Day 2 Done and Dusted
According to the screens, there were 220 players remaining after Day 2, and they will be joined by 36 qualified players from other live venues. A selection of chip counts will follow shortly, as well as a recap of today's action.
O'Connell Shows Kings
Walking past the tables brought several all ins, but no showdown and at least three times the other players on the table demanded that pocket aces were shown. This indeed happened at least three times, while Stephanie O'Connell showed more creativity.
Andreas Hoivold raised to 210,000 and Wai Kiat Lee called. O'Connell then shoved out of the big blind and Hoivold was taken aback. "Are you a nice person? Where are you from?" Hoivold asked with a smile on the face. The Norwegian then folded and Lee also quickly let go, O'Connell flashed .
Long Takes from Rettenmaier
There has been barely any stalling and the last hands of the day are played with some 220 players remaining.
If there was a showdown, it would not be an all in and one of those bigger pots went to Phil Long. The Brit took a decent chunk off Marvin Rettenmaier after his bet of 800,000 on the was called. Rettenmaier was shown for a full house and the German mucked.
Last 15 Hands
With the end of the day being the actual bubble, tournament director Simon Trumper has decided on a hand-for-hand mode for the last 45 minutes of level 37 - which also happens to be the last level of the day.
Thus, the dealers have just been instructed in dealing 15 more hands, and any player with chips after that 15th hand will have made the money in this partypokerLIVE Millions Main Event.
Gregorz Grochulski Leads the Pursuit
Another player is pushing the 20 million mark during the end of Day 2 at this partypokerLIVE Millions Main Event. Poland's Grzegorz Grochulski raised to 225,000 from the button, Lucas Reeves made it 900,000 to go from the big blind, and Grochulski called.
Reeves continued for 650,000 on the flop, Grochulski called. The turn was the , and Reeves checked his option. Grochulski cut out a mature 2,2 million chips and got the call. Reeves checked again on the and shortly after faced an all-in for his remaining 6,2 million. Ultimately Reeves reluctantly let go of his hand, and Grochulski could add the towers of chips to his already booming stack.
Vamplew and Geilich Both Busto
David Vamplew departed the partypokerLIVE MILLIONS Main Event in dramatic circumstances after a huge hand saw him depart and one player quadruple up.
A short-stacked player moved all-in pre-flop for 962,000 and was then called. Ludovic Geilich looked down at pocket aces and moved all-in for a stack of 3.4million. David Vamplew then re-shoved for less than 2.5m in the big blind with pocket kings, and the original caller to the first shove folded. The original man who moved all-in held and was thrilled as the board came down as he quadrupled up and moved right back into contention. Vamplew was busted and Geilich improved his stack to 4.8million.
However, within an orbit, Geilich was gone too. As he admitted when he told us the hand in question, he made a bad three-bet and should have folded, but got punished. This honest appraisal came after telling us that he three-bet to 367,000 over the opening bet of 120,000 from a player in early position. That player called the three-bet and the pair saw a flop of . Geilich made it 348,000 and his opponent check-called.
On the turn of , Geilich's opponent shoved and he called, having hit top two pair. His opponent held pocket sevens and knocked Geilich out after the completed the board. Geilich was yet another bust-out player who held a golden chip...by our estimation there have been more than the expected number of those £100,000 last longer players who've been eliminated.
