Porbandarwala is sitting with ~290k betting units heading into the final three levels of Day 1D. He has career earnings of ~$425k and his last major score came from a final table appearance in the Big Stax series. At Big Stax XX, Porbandarwala finished 4th in the 500 Main Event for $31,327, his best finish at this series. Since then, he has tacked on four scores over the summer and is back at a venue where he is quite familiar with Day 3 play. He will be a force to be reckon with going forward in this event.
Bittan lands in likely 2nd place at the break with ~340k. He has ~$82k in career earnings with two of his best scores coming in the last few months. He took 2nd in a WSOP circuit event in April for $25,002 and 2nd in a $450 event at Maryland Live for $20,852. Those two excellent performances give him some recent experience to draw from as he makes his bid for Big Stax glory this weekend.
Banks just topped 300k coming into the home stretch and will be hoping to improve that stack before the bags come out around 11:30 PM. Banks has ~$7.5k in career earnings but recently had a taste of a deep run in a big field event at the WSOP. He played the $365 Giant Event #19 and finished 855th for $1,115. A solid experience to draw from as he gets deeper in another huge field event at Parx.
