Sebastian Camilo Toro Henao Leads Mini Main Event
The $1,100 Mini Main Event crushed its $1 million guarantee with 1,127 entrants to generate a tasty $1,127,000 prize pool. Each of the opening flights played down to just 15 percent of the field leaving just 169 players heading into today’s Day 2.
Each of the opening flights allowed for 1 re-entry during the first nine levels. Players were given plenty of time to build a stack with long 25-minute blind levels.
Sebastian Camilo Toro Henao will head into Day 2 with the chip lead after he parlayed his opening stack of 1 million in chips in Saturday’s Day 1a into a massive stack of 27,039,049 in chips.
Two-time WSOP champion Elio Fox (25,419,260) is the closest player on Henao’s tail after virtually bagging the biggest stack on Sunday’s Day 1b. Luciano Hollanda (23,000,730) and Patrick Blye (22,663,403) were the only two other players to end an opening flight over the weekend with at least 20 million in chips.
Other players heading into Day 2 near the top of the leaderboard include Thomas Boivin (18,388,054), Joseph Cheong (17,118,762), William Kassouf (16,075,000), Espen Uhlen Jorstad (13,730,257), and Dominik Nitsche (12,483,080).

Day 2 will conclude after 10 blind levels with any surviving players coming back to compete on Day 3, which features even longer 40-minute blind levels, on Tuesday, Feb. 16.
Day 3 will witness the field trimmed down to just nine players with the final table scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 17 when a winner will be crowned.

Mini Second Chance Turbo Starts Today!
The first champion of the MILLIONS Online at partypoker will be crowned today. It won’t be in the Mini Main Event but instead in the one-day MILLIONS Online #2 Mini Second Chance Turbo, which features a $50,000 guarantee for a $530 buy-in.
The Mini Second Chance Turbo begins on Monday, Feb. 15 at 9:15 p.m. GMT (4:15 p.m. EST) with players starting out with 1 million in chips.
As the name of the event suggests, this will be one of the faster event on the schedule with eight minute blind levels.
There is still time to get into the action in this event for much cheaper than the $530 buy-in via the many $66 satellites scheduled throughout the day at partypoker.
