- Big Stax XXI 500 9:15 PM
- Level 12 (1000/2000/300)
- Day 1A Entries: 247
Greg Fishberg managed to pull the exact same seat on four consecutive entries but in the end, he found the stack he was looking for. He now has ~300k with four more levels to work on his arsenal.
It is true that Fishberg paid for multiple entries into this event but its hard to knock the strategy that is implemented by some of the pros in the room. Fishberg is known to push for a chip-advantage at many different stages of the event and that gives him the ability to finish in the Top 3 at a higher rate. He just finished chopping the Big Stax 300 Main Event three-way for a $60,673 score and if he finds a bag with yet another big stack, will be an immediate threat to hit big again in this series.
Some other players using a similar strategy are also doing well on Day 1. Jesse Cohen (220k), Dhaval Joshi (180k), and Kevin Grabel (100k) are all looking to bag a Top 10 stack out of today’s flight.
