- Level 8 (400/800/100)
- Day 1A Entries: 276
Abe Faroni has just taken his seat midway through Level 8 and begins his search for another big score and his first Big Stax Main Event Final Table. He comes into the series on the heels of his career best score after taking 4th in the $2500 Borgata Summer Open Main Event, earning $100,395 for a bittersweet finish so close to a major title. On top of that, he earned $40,434 as part of a 3-way chop in the Philadelphia Poker Classic in March, what is now his 2nd largest score and tacked on a min-cash in the WSOP Main Event. In total, Faroni has earned ~$165k of his career ~$433k earnings in 2017 and still has quite a few big events to improve on an already stellar year.
