Chakdor Declared Big Stax XXVI Champion: $69,850

Tinzen Chakdor had asked earlier in the night concerned how late play would go for his engineering job he had to be back to in the morning.  I guess he was feeling like his time was due, and rightfully so, as the cards got hot for Chakdor when he needed it most, giving him his biggest score to date. Congratulations on your victory!

Tenzin Chakdor Big Stax 500 Winner $69,850

Final 4 Agree to ICM Chop

  • Big Stax XXVI 500 7:05 PM
  • Level 30 (60000/120000/120000)
  • Players Remaining: 4

The final 4 have decided on doing what is more or less an ICM chop, with a little extra taken off the top of Chakdor to come to an agreement with the other 3. “We all have work in the morning,” Chakdor explains, and that he really didn’t want to have to play through the night.  Congratulations to all of our winners!
