After eight hours of intense poker action, Day 2 of the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS UK Main Event has come to an end with 224 players still within a shot of the £1,000,000 first place prize.

After a very busy day at Dusk Till Dawn Casino, Nottingham the MILLIONS Main Event saw the total entries rise to 1,015 to break the £5,000,000 guarantee, with 127 places paid.

Antoine Labat will return as the Day 3 chip leader after he bagged a very impressive 15,075,000 chips. Not only will Labat have the chips on his side but he will also have the experience too. The Frenchman is no stranger to big wins having banked $1,000,000 for a 9th place finish at this year's WSOP Main Event.

Alexandru Ciureanu (14,555,000) and Guillaume Diaz (13,840,000) also had a good day at the tables with Ben Jones (12,845,000) and Luke Marsh (12,370,000) completing the top five chip counts.

Tom Hall, who finished in 11th place at the MILLIONS Main Event at Dusk Till Dawn last year, will return with 9,810,000 with the well-known face of Niall Farrell also coming back with a healthy 9,275,000.

partypoker's Patrick Leonard eliminated his fellow team pro member Sam Trickett in the very last hand of the day at the feature table to bag a stack worth 6,310,000. Leonard raised from the hijack with king-jack of spades and saw Trickett defend his big blind with seven-three of clubs off of a stack worth two million. Both players checked on the five-three-three flop that saw Trickett hit trips and when the nine of spades hit the turn, Leonard called a 300,000 bet with his flush draw. The river was exactly the card Leonard was looking for as the ace of spades fell to give him the nut flush. Trickett bet 600,000 into the one million pot, and Leonard counted his stack while thinking before he moved all in. Trickett was unsure of what to do and contemplated his decision for three minutes before he called and saw the bad news.

Fellow partypoker pros Marcel Luske and Bertrand Grospellier also departed in the final level of the day, with Ludovic Geilich alongside partypoker ambassadors Boris Becker and Carl Froch also exiting earlier on in the day.

However, partypoker have further representation in Day 3 alongside Leonard with pros Natalia Breviglieri (5,260,000), Anatoly Filatov (5,000,000), Kristen Bicknell (4,380,000), Roberto Romanello (2,100,000) and Joni Jouhkimainen (1,540,000) also progressing.

The MILLIONS Main Event saw some of the best players in the world come to try their luck but many were unable to progress to Day 3 with the likes of Jake Cody, Paul Jackson, David Peters, Benjamin Pollak, Aymon Hata, Mustapha Kanit, Kenny Hallaert, Anton Wigg, Martin Finger, Michael Addamo, Benny Glaser, Michael Chi Zhang, and Chris Moorman all heading to the rail.

Alexandre Gomes, who came into the day's action as the chip leader with a stack worth 6,215,000 was unable to continue the momentum he held from yesterday's Day 1c and was a shock departure during the fifth level of the day. Last year's partypoker LIVE MILLIONS main event runner-up Jacob Mulhern who won £650,000 on that occasion will not be able to repeat the feat this year after he exited in 508th place.

The action will get resume at noon on Friday, October, 5 with the money-bubble set to burst in the first half of the day with 127 players guaranteed a minimum cash worth £10,300.

PokerNews will be out on the floor once again to bring you all the action so join us back here at noon!

Breviglieri Doubles Through Michaelis

poolshir • Level 16: 35,000-70,000, 70,000 ante

Natalia Breviglieri raised to 150,000 from under the gun and Paul Michaelis was up next to act in mid-position. Michaelis glanced at Breviglieri and three-bet to 375,000. Action folded to Breviglieri who called.

The flop came {2-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and they both checked to the {2-Spades} on the turn. Breviglieri checked again. Michaelis bet 330,000. Breviglieri looked at Michaelis and then shoved for 1,735,000. Michaelis took a few seconds and then called.

Natalia Breviglieri: {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Paul Michaelis: {J-Spades}{10-Spades}

Breviglieri had flopped a flush and Michaelis held two pair, tens and deuces. Michaelis needed another ten or deuce to eliminate Breviglieri.

The {3-Clubs} came on the river and didn't change the situation and Breviglieri doubled up.
