Paur Bags Overall Chip Lead After partypoker MILLIONS Vegas at Aria Day 1b

will_shill • Level 8: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante
partypoker MILLIONS Trophy
partypoker MILLIONS Trophy

The partypoker MILLIONS Vegas at Aria field continues to grow after 221 players joined on Day 1b with just 136 advancing to Day 2.

Registration is still open until the start of Level 11 and the re-entry policy is as follows: players who have bagged for Day 2 will be permitted one further re-entry should they bust during the first two levels of play; players are permitted one entry per day, therefore players who choose to enter at the start of Day 2 will not be able to re-enter should they bust during the first two levels of play.

Plenty of big names will be part of that Day 2 field including partypoker pro Sam Trickett who bought in late and managed to run up a stack of 161,500. Trickett has cashed in three partypoker MILLIONS Main Events, with his best finish being 30th place in the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS Grand Final in Barcelona.

partypoker pro Josip Simunic (342,000), as well as Team Online's Patrick Tardif (157,500) will also be advancing to Day 2 which starts on Sunday at 11 a.m, but fellow pro Jason Koon will have to re-enter having run into jacks late on. He flopped a flush draw but missed and was eliminated.

The chip leader after Day 1b appears to be Taylor Paur with 580,500. Close behind him is Spaniard Sergi Reixach who chipped up early and remained in control throughout the day to bag 488,500 as well as Jeremy Ausmus (456,500), Lin Kin (407,500).

Other notable stacks include Sosia Jiang (350,500), Michael Gathy (326,000), Niall Farrell (253,000), Olivier Busquet (251,500) and Johan Guilbert (248,000). Also through to Day 2 is Ryan Riess (183,000) and Ana Marquez (172,000).

Day 2 resumes here at the Aria Resort & Casino at 11 a.m. with live updates throughout the day right here on PokerNews

There will be five more hands before players bag up at the end of Day 1b.

Frank and Seymour Clash in the Blinds

ajlamers • Level 8: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

The action folded around to Christopher Frank in the small blind who just limped in. Richard Seymour raised to 5,000 in the big blind and Frank called. The flop came {j-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Frank checked to Seymour who bet 4,000. Frank check-raised to 13,500 and Seymour quickly called.

The {3-Diamonds} paired the board on the turn and Frank fired out another 23,000. Seymour still called and the {k-Spades} completed the board. Frank splashed in a bet of 65,000 and Seymour thought for over a minute before finally let his cards go. Frank turned over the {6-Spades} but that's all he would show.

On a {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} board a player check-called 3,000 from Sam Trickett and the turn was the {9-Diamonds}.

The player check-called 14,000 from Trickett and the river was the {4-Clubs}. Both players checked with Trickett showing {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} for trip aces, but his opponent showed {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} for the nut flush and Trickett mucked his hand.

Ryan Riess
Ryan Riess

There was a raise to 3,000 from under the gun and next to act was Erik Seidel who called. Ryan Riess in the hijack, the button, and Toby Lewis in the big blind also came along. The flop came {q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and all five players knuckled the table.

The {k-Spades} landed on the turn and the action checked to Seidel who bet 10,000. Riess called along with the button and Lewis. The river was the {9-Hearts} and both Lewis and Seidel checked. Riess flicked in a bet of 25,000 and it folded back to Seidel who instantly called.

Riess flipped over {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} for the nut straight and Seidel's cards quickly hit the muck.
