Level 11 (800/1600/200)
Day 1A Entries: 280
Pete Lin, featured just before dinner, holds the lead heading into the final five levels of competition on Day 1A. He currently sits with 260k which is just 20k ahead of the second place stack.
That stack belongs to Jason Mongillo who has accumulated ~240k through ten levels of play. Mongillo is sitting at a table which recently saw the departure of Greg Fishberg, and his once formidable Day 1 stack. Mongillo likely benefited by receiving some of those chips and will look to hold onto his lead throughout the late portion of Day 1A.
Neil Murphy is the only other player to eclipse the 200k mark, coming in at 220k during Level 10. Murphy is the most accomplished of the Top 3 players at this point, having cashed for $43k in live earnings and has been putting up consistent results since re-kindling his career in 2016. He looks to improve on his min-cash in the December running of the Big Stax 300, and is off to a great start.
