Matt Zambanini, Day 1B Level 15

Matt Zambanini was down to 17k midway through Level 13 and without having to reach for another bullet has run it up to ~350k. The majority of his comeback came from Andrew Mullen who is sitting to his immediate right. Mullen had peaked around 350k himself and now has ~140k after running KxKx into Zambanini’s AxAx to complete his comeback.

Zambanini has ~$191k in career winnings and will be going for his 5th Big Stax Main Event Final Table. He has made it to the Final Table three times in the 1100/1500 and once in the 300. The best finish, and his highest cash, is 5th in the 1100 at Big Stax XVI for $28,355.
