The first three events of the $2.2 million guaranteed Grand Prix KO series are reaching their Day 2s, meaning you only have a handful of chances left to qualify for the Mini 6-Max, 6-Max, and the 6-Max High Roller. Let us take a look at how things stand currently with only a trio of flights remaining.
Grand Prix KO #01 Mini 6-Max Top 10 Chip Counts
So far, 9,620 players have bought into the $5.50 Grand Prix KO #01: Mini 6-Max, and 1,365 of them are safely through to Day 2. Only three flights remain, they take place at 14:05, 17:05, and 18:30 BST on july 26.
Finland’s Jussi Korhonen is the man to catch right now, courtesy of accumulating 2,749,232 chips from his flight. The flying Finn already has $11.56 worth of bounty payments nestled safely in his partypoker account, which means he is essentially freerolling towards the big payouts.
Torsten Schluck of Germany is Korhonen’s nearest rival in terms of chips. The German grinder has 2,666,887 chips in his stack and must fancy his chances of grand Prix glory when Day 2 commences at 20:05 BST on July 26.
Everyone else in the top 10 chip counts has more than two million chips in their arsenal. A special mention has to go to the player in fifth-place right now, Belgian Michael Ekwan. He has eliminated 13 opponents so far and has $27.97 worth of bounties.

Grand Prix KO #02 6-Max Top 10 Chip Counts
The $55 Grand Prix KO #02 6-Max also has three flights remaining, at 14:05, 17:05, and 18:30 BST before Day 2 shuffles up and deals at 20:05 BST on July 26. Some 5,672 players have bought in, which means the $250,000 guarantee has already been surpassed. Only 839 players have chips in front of them on Day 2.
Kazakhstan may not be the first county you think of when it comes to poker, but Alexandr Khvan is determined to put the country on the poker map. Unless someone bags up three million chips on one opf the remaining three flights, he should go into Day 2 as the chip leader with 2,945,351.
Khvan has collected the third-most bounties at this stage, with $192.19. Only Eighth-placed Yassin Allam ($196.87 of bounties and 1,948,084 chips), and Carlos Martinez ($206.23 and 1,853,317) have helped themselves to more of the bounty prize pool.

Grand Prix KO #03 6-Max High Roller Top 10 Chip Counts
Only two flights, 15:05 and 17:05 BST, remain in the $530 Grand Prix KO High Roller event. The completed flights attracted 963 entrants and 144 of them are safely through to Day 2 at 20:05 BST on July 26.
Johannes Straver holds the chip lead with just the two flights remaining, the Austrian returns to the battlefield having already collected $1,906 from the bounty prize pool, and with 1,975,797 chips in play.
Straver pipped Luan Felipe Leonel Hertmann to the chip lead, with Hertmann bagging up 1,966,454 chips at the end of his flight. The very first flight’s chip leader, Tomi Brouk, has slid down the chip counts, but is still sixth right now courtesy of his 1,719,552 stack and $1,687 worth of bounty payments.
A handful of Team partypoker players will be present and correct on Day 2, so look out for that famous orange diamond in the chip counts. Patrick Leonard (1,158,620) is the best-placed of our team. He is joined by Joao Simao (827,494), Matthew Staples (462,740), and Jeff Gross (154,590).
