- Big Stax XXII 300 Main Event 8:40 PM
- Level 12 (1000/2000/300)
- Day 1D Entries: 1127
- Total Entries: 2632
At this stage, the tables are starting to break very quickly and as the stacks get shallower things are starting to condense. There will be a break after Level 12 which will give an opportunity to see the top of the standings heading into the home stretch.
One of those players will likely be CJ Welch. Welch currently has ~370k and is a tournament grinder from Maryland with ~$200k in lifetime winnings. His best finish in the Big Stax 300 came in May of 2014 when he made it to 26th place for $2,216. His most recent major final table was at the Borgata Spring Poker Open when he made it to 8th place in the Almighty Stack taking home $14,673 for his finish. Welch is certainly a dangerous player in the field and will be one to keep an eye on going forward.
