Day 1a is underway in Parx East and we have over 160 entries at this point. Our turnout today might be affected by the desire to spend Valentine’s Day elsewhere, but we are still on a pace to finish in the range of around 260 entries. We will be able to make a better final field size projection around this time tomorrow, but it is safe to say that we will have more than 1,000 entrants, which means around $500K in the prize pool and almost $100K for first place. Check back for end of night chip counts and table draws and we look forward to providing full coverage of the event starting on Day 2 on Sunday!
Last night, we had another great turnout as our $300 survivor event saw a total of 196 entries. This appears to be another record number of entrants, as the biggest previous turnout we could find at this price point was 182 entries in our August 2017 series. The $57,036 enabled us to pay 19 players prizes of $3,000 each. Congratulations to the following winners:
Big stax 300 is now all wrapped up, with another record setting turnout. The action continues this week with our 500 series along with a few other events that can be found below. Full schedule can be found at www.parxcasino.com/bigstax .
