After a slight delay, Day 1a of the 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS UK Main Event started and at the end of the day, 38 entries were collected. Those 38 entries included three reentries and of those 38, 18 players managed to find a bag at the end of the day to tag. Claiming the Day 1a chip lead is Turkey’s Serkan Ersoy with 4,830,000 in chips.

Ersoy was slowly collecting more and more chips but got most of them when he eliminated Erik Friberg with ace-queen against the pocket queens of Friberg. The ace fell on the flop to propel Ersoy into the chip lead, and that was a spot he didn’t want to give up during the later levels of the day.

Trailing Ersoy in the chip counts is Florin Sucala from Romania with 4,085,000. Is it going to be the year of Romania in Nottingham too? Sucala is definitely hoping so. Sucala took some of Rifat Palevic’s chips when he flopped top pair against him. Sucala also eliminated Javier Zarco and Kristoffer Rasmussen to take him to his current position.

Closing the podium in third place is UK’s own Simon Higgins who bagged 3,840,000. Other notable players who made it through to Day 2 include Guillermo Sanchez (3,150,000), Mark Gardner (2,100,000), David Lopez (1,850,000), Ben Dobson (1,780,000), Niall Farrell (1,550,000), Paul Newey (1,360,000), and Orpen Kisacikoglu (985,000).

Not everyone got lucky enough throughout the day though. partypoker pro Sam Trickett was eliminated when he shoved on the flop with a straight and flush draw but didn’t get there against the aces of Andrew Mapp. Palevic busted both of his bullet, as did Arran Fletcher. Other players failing to get to the end of the day include Paul Dando, Andy Black, Nabil Cardoso, and Yani Yanev.
