1st Place – Joe Palma $60,675
2nd Place – Alvaro Holguin $60,674
3rd Place – Greg Fishberg $60,673
After the elimination of Gerald Johnson in 4th place, the three remaining players negotiated an even chop. Joe Palma takes the trophy after gaining a slight edge from scoring the last knockout.
The three winners played a grueling Final Table with long stretches of no eliminations. Palma endured a very tough stretch and nearly busted before regaining his traction from his low point of 5.6M. Greg Fishberg had a similar issue after being 7th out of 7 remaining players, 3.8M, and making a huge comeback without any critical all-in situations.
The trend was bucked by Alvaro Holguin who held a commanding chip-advantage for most of the Final Table play. Mostly building his stack off the heels of Joe Palma’s brief meltdown in Level 33, and then held on for the remainder of the event.
In the end, the Final Table featured a very high level of play and an exciting conclusion to the Big Stax XXI 300 Main Event. Thanks to everyone who participated in the event and contributing to the tremendous success of the Parx Big Stax series.
