Partypoker MILLION $1,000,000 GTD got cancelled
partypoker announced the return of the traditional Sunday Million event, rebranded as the partypoker MILLION festival with $1,220,000 GTD and three tournaments. Unfortunately, due to technical problems, almost half (443) of the 809 players did not register on the final day.
Rob Yong himself addressed the situation and announced compensations to the affected players:
- The players that played in the first Day 2 and busted will keep the cash they have received for ranking in the tournament. All players that were still in at the time the tournament was paused will be paid the next prize rank. This will be paid out on top of the $1M GTE.
- All players that made it through Day 1 will receive a share of the $1M prize pool - 50% of the $1M will be split equally among the players and 50% split based on chip equity at the end of Day 1. All Day 2 players will also be given a $215 partypoker MILLION ticket.
As a result, only the mini events were played with the following results:
Number of players: 1,668;
Game time: 8 hours 25 minutes (only the final day);
Prize pool: $203,820;
Winner: "Maxi2311", $23,433.
