"level29" Takes Overall Chip Lead in the GGSF Super MILLION$ High Main Event on Day 1c

Jaxon • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Day 1c of the $10 million guaranteed Super MILLION$ High Main Event at GGPoker witnessed 123 entries get into the action to make it 610 total entries with two more flights to go on Saturday and Sunday. Just 14 of those players survived after 22 blind levels of 20 minutes each were in the books to bring the total survivors up to 75 entrants.

India's "level29" won a big pot to eliminate GGPoker Ambassador Anatoly Filatov in a coin-flip situation near the end of the day to not only take the Day 1c chip lead with 2,276,011 but also take-over the overall chip lead from Michael Watson, who virtually bagged 1,921,636 on Day 1a.

Sergio Aido also advanced from Day 1c with more chips than Watson to so far have the second biggest stack overall. Aido stood strong while poker streamer Jargo Alavali bluffed off his stack to win a massive pot on the second to last hand of the day.

Several others bagged stacks north of 1 million in chips including Ami Barer (1,399,596), Sami Kelopuro, and Antonio "nanqtf" Pedro (1,110,232).

Meanwhile, Christian Rudolph (983,652) and Matthias Eibinger (916,353) were both near the top of the chip counts most of Day 1c and will enter Day 2 with above average stacks.

Others advancing from the Day 1c field were Sam Greenwood (707,680), Andreas Christoforou (511,134), Antonio "NewLife69DP" Gonzalez (325,768), Felipe Ketzer (242,808), Jeff "DollarVig" Berwick (211,311), and Ronny Kaiser (143,373).
