- Big Stax XXII 300 Main Event 7:45 PM
- Level 10 (600/1200/100)
- Day 1A Entries: 463
Heading into the post-dinner session there are three stacks that have eclipsed the 200k mark. Two of them are tied for the lead with just over 200 big blinds.
Chris Kusha has ~245k and the lead going into Level 10. Kusha has ~325k in live earnings and is just over a year removed from his best live score. Last year, he had the exciting opportunity to make a deep run in the 2016 WSOP Main Event, falling short of the coveted Final Table with a 27th place finish. That earned him $269,430 and a taste of the biggest stage in poker.
Kromas comes into Level 10 with a tie for the lead, ~245k, after spending his dinner break at the cash tables. Kromas has ~$28k in career earnings but has logged over half of that this year. His big score came in a win at the Sands in a $400 in May for $13,500. He looks to find himself in a similar situation this weekend and is off to an excellent start here on Day 1A.
