888Millions Superstorm Main Event Update

Opening flights for the Superstorm Main Event are underway with thus far 980 entrants (including 113 inflight re-entries) already hopping into the action in hopes for a lion's share of the at least $1 million guaranteed in the prize pool.

A total of 142 players and counting have thus far virtually bagged a stack with many more to come. Brazil's "vitola99" has maintained the chip lead for over a week after growing his 10,000 opening chip stack into a monster stack of 227,527 in chips.

There was just one change in the top 10 players on the leaderboard over the weekend with Lithuania's "InfoDealer" slipping into the eighth spot on the leaderboard.

This pushed the former top-ranked online tournament player in the world in Chile's Nicolas "PKaiser" Fierro out of the top 10 and into the 11th spot on the leaderboard.

Here is a look at the top 10 players on the leaderboard thus far with many more opening flights to come.

The Main Event provides plenty of action with 20-minute blind levels on Day 1. Opening flights end the sooner of 12 blind levels in the books or the field trimmed down to 14 percent of its starting size.

The next opening flight takes place on Monday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m. GMT / 3 p.m. EDT. There are plenty of satellites for players to qualify for pennies on the dollars along with many paths for players to get their tickets for free.

Surviving players will return for one final day of play on Sunday, Oct. 11 when all of the action will be reported under the watchful eye of the PokerNews Live Reporting team.
