Another exciting day has reached its conclusion here at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal, Canada. The partypoker MILLIONS North America $5,300 Main Event Day 1B was the only tournament on tap for the day. There were a total of 174 entries throughout the day and only 64 managed to survive until the end.

Darryll Fish managed to bag the chip lead with 6,900,000, most of which stemmed from a massive pot he played with Jeff Cormier. It was a coin flip with all of the chips going in the middle preflop. Fish held pocket queens against Cormier's ace-king and a flopped set of queens earned Fish a full double up. With over $3.5 million in career tournament earnings, Fish is no stranger to the poker community. His largest cash came earlier this year at a WPT event for $511,604.

The day was filled with plenty of familiar names at each and every table in action. Some other notables to bag chips at the end of Day 1B include Ami Alibay (6,190,000), Darren Elias (6,160,000), Marvin Rettenmaier (5,220,000), Jeff Gross (3,200,000), Pascal Lefrancois (3,075,000), Lucas Greenwood (2,355,000), and Niall Farrell (1,500,000).

The action started at 12:00 PM local time with 34 players taking their seats. It didn't take long for the number of players to start rolling in to take their shot at the guaranteed $10,000,000 prizepool. Everyone started with an initial stack of 1,000,000 chips but with the blinds at 5,000/10,000 and a 10,000 button ante, it didn't take long for the stacks to start moving. In fact, two well-known names in Chance Kornuth and Mike Leah saw their chips disappear within the first level.

The action will continue on Thursday with Day 1C and the PokerNews live reporting team will be there to cover all of the action.

Elias Cruising to Another Big Day 1

Nível 8 : 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante
Darren Elias
Darren Elias

Darren Elias is starting to become one of the stories at the partypoker MILLIONS North America this week at how well he is performing on the opening day of tournaments. Elias played in both of the high roller events and bagged the chip lead after Day 1 in each of them. He managed to place third in the $25,500 Super High Roller for $165,000 and is now working his way to another strong Day 1 performance.

With the pot already having around 600,000 in the middle preflop, the dealer fanned the flop of {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Spades}. Yonathan Moryoussef led out for 315,000 and Elias shipped all in. Moryoussef called off his last 1,750,000 chips and the cards were face up.

Moryoussef turned over {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} while Elias tabled {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} for two overcards and a flush draw. The turn was the {6-Clubs} and the river brought the {q-Spades}. Elias missed his flush but paired his queen to eliminate Moryoussef and build up a stack of over 6,000,000 chips.

Benger Folds, Salsberg Eliminated

Nível 8 : 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Three players went to a flop of {7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Matt Salsberg started with a check from the big blind. Griffin Benger bet 180,000 and Frank Koopman quickly called from the cutoff. Salsberg stuck in his last 155,000 chips to create a small side pot.

The turn paired the board with the {4-Clubs} and Benger fired another bet of 350,000. Koopman asked for the pot to be spread out and then made the call. The river was the {3-Clubs} and Benger slowed down with a four-card straight on the board. Koopman casually tossed in a bet of 700,000 and Benger mucked his cards. Koopman turned over {5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for a full house while Salsberg only had a straight with {6-Spades}{2-Spades}.

Fish and Cormier Flip for Stacks

Nível 7 : 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante

There was a raise to 55,000 from middle position and Darryll Fish just flat-called from the hijack. Jeff Cormier was on the button and three-bet to 185,000. The initial raiser laid his hand down and Fish four-bet to 550,000. Cormier instantly announced all in and Fish called off his stack for a total of 2,520,000.

Darryll Fish: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Jeff Cormier: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}

The flop came {q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and although Fish hit a set of queens, Cormier picked up a flush draw. The turn brought an end to the drama as the {9-Spades} paired the board, leaving Cormier drawing dead to the {k-Diamonds} on the river.

The action folded to Marvin Rettenmaier in the hijack who raised it up to 55,000. Eric Wasylenko called from the small blind and the big blind tagged along as well. The flop fell {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and the action checked around to the {7-Diamonds} on the turn.

Wasylenko led out for 105,000 and was called by both the big blind and Rettenmaier. The {q-Hearts} completed the board and Wasylenko fired a second bullet of 205,000. The big blind quickly folded and Rettenmaier sent his cards to the muck as well.

The turn brought the {3-Hearts} and Farrell shipped all in for 1,060,000. Smith tanked for a couple minutes and then finally made the call. Farrell turned over {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades} for just a straight draw while Smith held top pair with {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}. The river landed the {q-Hearts} and Farrell was sent to the rail at the end of Day 1B.
