- Big Stax XXII 500 Main Event 9:50 PM
- Level 12 (1000/2000/300)
- Day 1A Entries: 333
Allyn Marshall is up to ~260k after the blog may have temporarily mushed Greg Weber who is sitting on his immediate left. Marshall has ~$145k in career earnings but has not cashed a Main Event here at Parx since Big Stax II. That run ended in 35th place for $1,534 in the 300 but Marshall is off to an excellent start to improve his track record at this particular venue.
Rickey Demetros has just three cashes on his tournament resume but one of those was a 2nd place finish here at Parx before the introduction of the Big Stax series. Demetros took home $17,617 in a $500 buy-in event at the WPT Regional Series Parx Open Winter Showdown, the one significant score in his career. He starts his journey for another big score after working up a stack of ~240k and sitting on one of the outer tables with early leaders Tony Cavezza and Gary Distenfeld.
Shannon Soroka is a local player who has worked up ~$13k in live earnings in the Philly area. His career best came from winning the popular $500 Survivor Event that is run during the Big Stax series which awards $5,000 to each player who cashes. He sets his sights on a bigger win now and is doing well late in Day 1A with ~220k in his arsenal.
