- Big Stax XXII 500 Main Event 11:30 PM
- Level 14 (1500/3000/400)
- Day 1A Entries: 346
The field is now midway through Level 14 and some of the more critical pots around the room will be played over the next hour. Abe Faroni has built up a size-able stack of ~420k and is currently challenging Thanh Minh Le for the chip-lead late in Day 1A.
Here’s a look at a couple more above average stacks that could challenge for that lead before the bags come out:
Hollenberg continues his nice run during this series by building up a stack of ~240k during Day 1A. He just got some Day 3 action in the 300 Main Event but fell short of the top pay-outs after being eliminated in 35th place. In total, Hollenberg has ~$255k in career earnings with his best score coming right here at Parx. He finished 2nd in the first WPTDeepstacks Main Event in February 2016 for $130,754, one of the largest prizes ever awarded in this poker room.
Adam Sanders peaked at ~300k but has since given just a few thousand back by the time this picture was taken. However, he still leads the way on Table 54 which includes “Rags”, DJ McKinnon, and early chip-leader Frank Ferrigno.
