The 20-minute level turbo heat 1c of the 2017 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Russia $5,300 Main Event has attracted a field of 126 entries at the stunning Casino and Resort Sochi, of which around 100 players remained.

Among the other notables that made it through were Eduards Kudrjavcevs (2,965,000), Dmitry Gromov (2,190,000) and Andriena Nutt (1,576,000). All those that bagged up multiple times can choose which one they will take first with the other stacks serving as backup re-entry solution during the first four levels of Day 2.

The Day 1c Turbo flight is rattling along at a very brisk pace as you might imagine, with successful players who last the distance going straight into the Day 2 action when that resumes in the Main Event at 4 pm local time.

The partypoker sponsored pro Romanello, who hails from Wales, has won back-to-back pots with a flopped flush and then without showdown to leap a decent percentage above starting stack on around 1.1million.

At the other end of the chipcounts, legendary high roller Steve O'Dwyer, who has $18.5 million in live tournament winnings, will have to fight hard to reach a Day 2 place, with just 230,000 chips to his name at blinds fo 2,500/5,000.
