After another eight 60-minute levels were played out in the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Russia Main Event, Maksim Pisarenko bagged the biggest chip count worth 5,375,000.

When the registration period closed, there was a total of 186 entrants with 94 of those players lasting the full eight levels.

Alexandr Labunskiy (5,115,000), Alimbay Sultanov (5,110,000), Jessica Pilkington (4,900,000) and Dirk Bueker (4,510,000) all ended the day with healthy Day 2 stacks to bring back on Friday, August, 10.

Bueker's story is an interesting one after he qualified for the MILLIONS Main Event after winning two promotions. The German qualified online to play at the WSOPC event in Sochi and was the Golden Chip winner after outlasting all the other online qualifiers. Could he turn his story into one of the greats!? Only time will tell.

2017 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS champion Maria Lampropulos was also able to find a bag on her second bullet of the day.

The final starting flight Day 1c kicks-off on Thursday, August, 9 at Noon local time, with those who wish to skip it available to use the late registration period for the first three levels of Day 2 also.

PokerNews will be back tomorrow for continued coverage of the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Main Event Russia.
