It will be a who's who when the final 15 players return for Day 2 of the partypoker MILLIONS North America $25,500 Super High Roller. The action is slated to kick off at 12:00 PM EST at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal, Canada. An unfamiliar face at a live poker table is sitting near the top of the leaderboard in the name of Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom.
Blom is mostly known for playing in the nosebleed online cash games, winning or losing millions of dollars, but has made an appearance on the felt this week in Montreal. Blom made the final table of the $10,300 High Roller earlier in the series, and will now be looking to go back-to-back in the Super High Roller. The Swede currently sits second in chips with 6,755,000, not far behind Darren Elias who is leading once again with 8,815,000.
Some other names to keep an eye out for include Kevin Hobbs (4,450,000) who is also looking for his second cash of the festival, Sean Winter (3,800,000) who is a regular on the high-stakes tournament scene, and Niall Farrell (2,735,000) who will surely have a drink in his hand at some point today. With just seven players making the money, it will be a dash for the cash when the action gets underway. A min-cash will be worth $60,000 while the winner will be pocketing themselves a cool $325,000.
The blinds will continue on level 13 at 35,000/70,000 with a 70,000 button ante. The button ante seems to keep the action moving quickly so the pace of play should be rather fast. The blind levels will still be 40-minutes in length with a 15-minute break after every three levels. There will be a table redraw when the unofficial final table is reached at nine players. The PokerNews coverage will be in sync with the live stream on a 30-minute delay when the final table begins.
