Russo is a seasoned tournament player with ~$432k in career earnings. In the last couple of years, Russo has posted three cashes here at the Big Stax series. Those runs give him some experience in this particular structure and he now looks for his first major score at this venue and has accumulated a nice stack early on Day 1A.
Russo was sharing the felt with Chris Laieta and James Gilbert who have both moved on to another bullet but is still competing with Vanna Nuon, Jim Lillis, and Tony Tonzelli. He leads the table with ~160k and is among the leaders at this point in the session.
