- Big Stax XXII 1500 Main Event 7:55 PM
- Level 10 (600/1200/200)
- Day 1A Entries: 152
Cards are back in the air for six more levels of Day 1A action. At this stage, a starting stack is worth just over 40 big blinds and there is a ton of play for anyone wishing to join late. Dennis Dailey is the chip-leader coming into the post-dinner stint with ~290k.
Andy Santiago is in 2nd place with ~235k. He will be looking for his second Final Table in this event after finishing 3rd at Big Stax XV for $95,617, his career best score.
Kevin Grabel is in 3rd place with ~230k and is the last stack to move over the 200k mark through nine levels. Grabel is one of the most dangerous players in the field with seven Big Stax Main Event Final Tables and four of them ending with a Top 3 or a chop. He will be going for his 2nd Final Table in the 1500 and hope to improve on his 6th place finish at Big Stax XVII last August.
