Mernone has gotten off to an excellent start after coming into Day 2 play with 313.5k. He has a mountain of chips that looks like ~900k-1M and is likely trailing only Pannucci at this point. He started the day at a table with two of the leaders John Bordner (658.5k) and Matt Iles (597k) and has gotten the best of the deep table.
Mernone has ~$122k in lifetime earnings and one Big Stax Final Table already under his belt. He finished 7th in the Big Stax X 500 Main Event for $11,484, his 3rd largest score. He hopes to use the prior experience and his commanding chip-stack to make a deep run today and potentially add another significant score to his resume.
