Longmao Fan Becomes Chip Millionaire on Day 1e

Day 1e concluded in the early hours of Sunday morning. The penultimate turbo flight pushed the prize pool past €600,000 with 130 runners battling it out including several players that were in the €2,500 Super High Roller in Hi-Bet’s Eros Nastasi, Paul Carr, and Aidan Quinlan finding a bag among the 19 players to advance to Day 2 with at least a min-cash of €900.

China’s Longmao Fan became the latest chip millionaire with Gianpiero Barrile, Patrick Kochanski, the aforementioned Paul Carr, and Jake Allen all bagging up more than 500,000.

The last chance saloon in Day 1f kicked off at 10 a.m. with late registration closing minutes away. Stay tuned for the update on the final prize pool of the Grand Event with the payouts likely not to be announced until the start of Day 2. Of course, before then we will share the seat draw to Day 2 when its finalized and more. In the meantime check out the chip counts from Day 1e below:
