- Big Stax XXII 300 Main Event 9:40 PM
- Level 12 (1000/2000/300)
- Day 1A Entries: 502
Pofuk Ying becomes the chip-leader temporarily after working his stack to ~310k. He sits at a tough table featuring Chris Kusha to his immediate left, and online tournament grinder PokerMantis across the felt as well.
Ying has ~$169k in career earnings and is looking for his first big score of 2017. In the last three attempts at the 300 Main Event, he has finished 58th and 24th for plenty of Day 2 experience. Ying hopes to find a bag and challenge for the Final Table once again.
