David Butkus made the most of Level 10 and has worked his arsenal up to ~270k heading into the 1600 big blind. That stack gives him around 160 big blinds and is among the Top 5 at this stage. Butkus has ~$170k in career earnings and one Big Stax Main Event Final Table to his name. He took 7th in the $2500 High Roller Event at Big Stax XX for $11,805, an event that is the toughest field to be hosted at Parx. He also has a 4th in the $2500 Borgata Fall Open Main Event for $85,972 giving him plenty of success in the higher buy-in tournaments.
