Maltese Antonio Ortega leads the MILLIONS Online KO Main Event
Three of the six flights scheduled for the PartyPoker MILLIONS Online KO Main Event are done and dusted, with the remaining three taking place between May 28th and 29th. Time is quickly running out if you want to get in the mix and have any chance of securing the lion’s share of the $500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
In those three initial days, approximately 515 of your fellow PartyPoker players either bought in or won the $530 buy-in MILLIONS Online KO Main Event. However, at the time of writing, only 78 of these rookies have stamped Day 2 tickets, locking up a minimum of cash for their efforts and any rewards collected along the way.

MILLIONS Online KO Main Event Top 10 Chip Counts
|8||Steven Van Zadeloff||Malta||12,561,583|
|10||Patrice Brandt||United Kingdom||9,999,370|
If you intend to jump into one of the remaining MILIONS Online KO Main Event flights and aspire to finish in the top ten chip counts, you will need to build your starting stack into at least 10 million!
UK-based Frenchman Patrice Brandt currently occupies tenth place, with 9,999,370 chips at his disposal. Brandt is approaching the freeroll for a bigger prize than min-cash because he already has $875 of bounty locked up.
Anyone who wishes to become the chip leader and give themselves the best possible shot at becoming the PartyPoker MILLIONS Online Main Event KO champion will need to shine brightly on their chosen Day 1. Why? Since Antonio Ortega is the current chip leader, his stack has 23,619,050 betting chips. Only Paulo Brombin, with 22,722,425, has over 20 million.
Unsurprisingly, Ortega has amassed the most generous cash so far. The Malta-based professional has $1,750 worth of scalps to his name. Denmark’s Mikkel Asstradsson also has $1,750 of the bounty jackpot on his PartyPoker accounts; Asstradsson occupies sixth place as of now.
