Chris Horter started the day well above average with 317.5k and has done very well for himself over the first two levels. Horter now has ~850k and leads the way at a table with Will Failla, Greg Fishberg, and Jack Duong.
Horter has a Big Stax Main Event title under his belt already after taking the largest portion of a 5-way deal last August in the 300. That finish earned him $90,566, the second largest score on his resume of ~$432k in live earnings. Horter will now look to continue his run deep into Day 2 and get a shot at another trophy here at Parx.
Trevor Savage came into Day 2 with 248k and is moving up quickly. He now has ~810k and is among the leaders with just under 20 eliminations to go before the money is reached.
Savage has ~$403k in career earnings but took a long break from tournament poker with the majority of his scores coming before 2012. Savage has a victory here at Parx that pre-dates the Big Stax series as he took down a $500 event in August 2011 for $18,292, his 5th largest score. Savage will now look to get back into the swing of things in 2017 and could be on his way to his first major score since 2011.
