The $30 million guaranteed Super MILLION$ Week is coming to a close at GGPoker but there is still more action ahead with Day 2 and the final table of the Super MILLION$ $10,300 Main Event still yet to come over the course of the next two days.

The Main Event will provide value for those that cash as the event attracted 976 entries to add $240,000 to the prize pool thanks to the massive $10 million guarantee.

A total of 121 players will return including 47 players from the Day 1d flight with 100 players guaranteed at least a min-cash of $31,012 with the eventual winner banking an impressive $1,242,332 top prize.

Second place will also walk away as a millionaire with a $1,000,991 runner-up prize with many other great prizes in between.

Recap of Day 1d

All of the opening flights featured 22 blind levels of 20-minutes each and Day 1d was no different. Christian Jeppsson, who had more than $1 million in tournament cashes at GGPoker alone, led the way among the 47 Day 1d survivors after bagging an impressive stack of 1,918,599.

Jeppsson, who was already near the top of the leaderboard, took the chip lead near the end of the day while also sending "pochi" to the rail after his ace-nine got there against his opponent's big slick.

Marcelo Asensio (1,681,740), Ludovic "Gr4vyB04t" Geilich {1,327,346), Krasimir Yankov (1,362,902), and Mark "Chasseneige" Demirjian (1,229,053) were closest on Jeppsson's tail at the end of the day.

Meanwhile, Kristen Bicknell will be able to celebrate tomorrow's International Women's Day at GGPoker thanks to bagging a healthy stack of 1,213,252 into tomorrow's Day 2.

GGPoker Ambassador Fedor Holz fired six bullets on Day 1d and the sixth one got him through to Day 2 with a stack of 432,818. Holz fared better than his two fellow GGPoker Ambassadors to get in on the action with Felipe Ramos hitting the rail near the end of the day and Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier ending his day before the end of late registration.
