Igor Kurganov leads first day of the PartyPoker Live Millions Europe high roller
The PartyPoker Live Millions Europe series has begun in Rozvadov, as part of which a $100 000 high roller tournament is taking place. Towards the evening, the event gathered 28 entries, which is a pretty good result for the first game day of the most expensive tournament holding within this series.
Poker players were supposed to play 10 levels for 45 minutes each, but the event was reduced by one level since the organizers launched the tournament an hour and a half later than it was formerly planned. The registration is still open therefore everyone interested may join the highroller and compete for huge prize money.
Famous poker professional Igor Kurganov became a chip leader of the first game day. There are 743 000 chips in his stack, which is equivalent to 150 big blinds. Two PartyPoker ambassadors Kristen Bicknell and Sam Trickett remain in the game as well.
