Finkelstein Grabs The Lead

  • Big Stax XXII 500 Main Event 5:00 PM
  • Level 9 (500/1000/100)
  • Day 1C Entries: 564
  • Total Entries: 1225

There is going to be just a few more minutes of play before the dinner break begins at 5:30 PM. A clear look at the Top 5 will be available right after dinner but for now one stack has jumped clearly in front of the massive Day 1C flight.

Andrea Finkelstein, Day 1C Level 9

That stack belongs to Andrea Finkelstein, ~280k, who is well clear of previous Day 1 chip-leaders near the dinner break. Finkelstein has ~$32k in career earnings and her best score came from a very close call in the Big Stax 1500. In August 2016, just under a year ago, she made it all the way to 13th before exiting the event. She earned $6,893 for that finish and some experience of Day 3 play. Finkelstein hopes to get over that hump this time around and find herself at the Final Table a couple days from now.
