Derek Staib, Day 2 Level 18

Derek Staib continues his good run here at Parx by chipping up early in Day 2. Staib started the day with 223k and had one of the best opening stretches of play by building his stack up to ~860k. He is fresh off of his Final Table performance in the 300 last week finishing in 6th place for $21,425 and will now set his sights on making another Day 3 session in just two weeks.

Alex Berdichevskiy, Day 2 Level 18

Berdichevskiy is off to an amazing start on Day 2 after coming in with just 72.5k. That stack was just under 15 big blinds to start the day and would be under immediate pressure. He made the most of the early levels though, and worked it up to ~800k before the first break.

Berdichevskiy has ~$105k in tournament earnings and a lot of cashes in Big Stax Main Events. In the 500, he has made it as far as 21st and 23rd giving him a taste of play deep into the event. He will now look to take his big stack and get another shot of getting over that hump and finding himself at the Final Table on Day 3.
