- Day 1B Entries: 214
- Total Entries: 467
Michael Borovitz started Level 10 with ~185k and among the Top 5 stacks in the field. Borovitz has ~$585k in career earnings which includes a Big Stax Final Table in the 300 at the very first running of the event. He finished 9th in that tournament for $7,327 and has not cashed here since that deep run. Borovetz is certainly a capable player with many big scores around the country and will search for his first major score since 2013 this weekend.
Pyloore rounds out the Top 5 with ~180k heading into Level 10. Pyloore is an occasional tournament player with ~$13k in career earnings and has racked up four cashes in the Big Stax series since his first result in August 2015. His deepest run came in the 500 Main Event at Big Stax XII, finishing 38th for $1,829. Pyloore will look to get over that hump and find himself playing on Day 3 and has done well to make that a possibility early in the event.
