The third and final day saw 27 players return to the partypoker tables, each guaranteed at least $63,270 for their $10,300 buy-in. Day 3 was short-lived for “junglemandan” as they fell in 27th place. You may recall "junglemandan" recently won both the Big Game and partypoker MILLION on the same day. It’s a shame they couldn’t complete a hat-trick of titles in this event.

Isaac “Ike_Haxton” Haxton started the day with a short stack and never managed to get out of second gear. The partypoker-sponsored pro had to make do with the $63,270 25th place prize.

“Player_1234” busted in 16th place and became the first player to secure a six-figure payout, namely $121,267. This princely sum had increased to $316,350 by the time the final table was reached, “BAPPA” being the player who burst the final table bubble when they crashed out in ninth-place.

Cloudking Wins $659,062 and a 2020 Caribbean Poker Party Package

The player known as “BillKluka” was the final table’s first casualty and they were joined on the rail by “PalPal012015” who banked a cool $474,525. Next to bust was “Cloudking” in sixth-place, a finish worth $659,062. Cloudking also secured a full package to the 2020 Caribbean Poker Party after lasting the longest of all satellite qualifiers and players who bought into MILLIONS Online before Day 1A began last Sunday.
Partypoker LIVE president John “John_Duthie” Duthie crashed out in fifth-place for an impressive $869,962. Duthie had ridden his luck as he attempted to claw his way back into contention, hitting the river twice to double up when he was dominated. Duthie’s had to run out eventually and did, although the almost $900,000 score will go some way to consoling him for not winning.

Start-of-the-day chip leader “Rank 1 Global” was the first of the MILLIONS Online players to become a millionaire. Their fourth-place exit saw their partypoker bankroll swell by a massive $1,107,225.

No Deal!

The final three players then paused the tournament clock to discuss a potential deal. Those discussions proved fruitless when “nomeansyes” rejected the offer on the table, so play resumed.

"nomeansyes" must be kicking themselves because they were the next player out of the door. Their exit hand saw them all-in for 14 big blinds with queen-jack against Chalot’s ace-queen. Neither player improved their holding, Chalot’s kicker played and "nomeansyes" busted in third. Third-place saw them walk away with $1,370,850.

That was the last action of the 2019 MILLIONS Online because both Chalot and “Lucio", who were almost level in chips, struck a deal for the remaining prize pool, concluding the tournament. "Lucio" won $2,222,511 as part of the deal, leaving Chalot to be crowned 2019 MILLION Online champion and bank $2,259,113.

What Next For partypoker?

It will likely be a few months before the partypoker management team reveal plans for MILLIONS Online Part III, but partypoker LIVE players don’t have long to wait before they can play for some massive prizes.

The CAD$500,000 guaranteed Grand Prix Canada tournament is in full swing both online and live at the Playground Poker Club. Then as 2020 begins, Dusk Till Dawn hosts the MILLIONS UK festival that includes a $5 million guaranteed Main Event.
