- Level 9 (500/1000/100)
- Day 1A Entries: 222
Travis Hartshorn is right at 200k and sitting in a really great seat. An anonymous chip-leader with ~300k is to his direct right. Justin Liberto, with ~180k, is two seats to his right, giving Hartshorn position on the tough opponent. Hartshorn will look for the chips to flow downhill and he has about three tables to break before his seat gets changed.
Hartshorn is a Big Stax Main Event winner after taking down the October 2016 300 Main Event for $98,308. Just four recorded cashes after that break-out win, Hartshorn took down the Borgata Fall Open Main Event for $302,878. That scores caps off an incredible run late in 2016 as Hartshorn begins his search for another big score to add to his $531k in live winnings this weekend.
