Thomas Boivin is crushing the MILLIONS Online KO edition online at PartyPoker. The popular Belgian has helped himself to not one, not two, but three MILLIONS Online KO titles totalling more than $25,000 in prize money. Perhaps better still, Boivin has a top 15 stack in the $1,050 buy-in $1 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online KO Main Event, where he has accumulated $750 in bounties going into Day 2!
Boivin’s first victory came in the $530 buy-in 8-Max event, which attracted a compact yet stellar field of 84 entrants. No final tables are easy to navigate through, but this particular finale was tough. British grinder Oliver Sprason‘s exit left the water’s less shark-infested, as did the elimination of Canadian Philippe D’Auteuil and Team PartyPoker star Matt Staples.
Sweden’s Ludwig Lindstrom fell in sixth place, a remarkable achievement considering he did not capture a single bounty before he crashed out. Manuel Carvalho, winner of the 7-Max Weekender event, finished in fifth before Luciano Hollanda and Giuseppe Orlando fell by the wayside, leaving Boivin heads-up against Jonathan Proudfoot.
Both players locked in more than $5,600 from the main prize pool, but the final bounty prize was worth much more than that. An additional $6,800 made its way to Boivin’s account when he sent Proudfoot to the showers in second place. Boivin hauled in $12,416 in total, with Proudfoot collecting $7,798 for his bridesmaid finish.

Shorter Table, Same Results
Boivin found himself as the last man standing in the $215 buy-in 7-Max event, a tournament that saw 220 entrants build a $44,000 prize pool. Some $7,995 of that sum is now nestled in Boivin’s PartyPoker account.
The Belgian locked horns and butted heads with such luminaries as Gustavo Mastelotto, Michael Huber, and Matheus Almeida, before fighting it out one-on-one with the United Kingdom’s Charlie Combes. Again, Boivin came out on top and resigned Combes to a second-place finish.
Boivin completed his impressive hat trick by topping a field of 87 entrants in a $215 buy-in 6-Max Hyper event, a result good for $2,059.

Carvalho Crowned Weekender Champion
One of the biggest prizes of the PartyPoker MILLIONS Online KO edition so far went to Malta’s Manuel Carvalho, courtesy of him triumphing in the 7-Max Weekender. Some 530 players bought in for $320, ensuring the $150,000 guarantee was surpassed by $4,000.
After Brazilian sensation Dalton Hobold, Lander Bereciartua, Samuel Simister, and Charlie Combes bowed out, the remaining trio of hopefuls were guaranteed to take home five-figure sums for their efforts. Giuseppe Orlando crashed out in third for $11,197.
Heads-up pitched Carvalho against the UK’s David Harvey. Both players locked in a shade over $11,000, but Carvalho added another $15,998 to his haul when he got his hands on every chip in play. The champion ended the event with the $27,059 top prize, while Harvey headed into the night with $11,776 reasons to be happy with his performance.
