Av Singh, Day 2 Level 22

Singh starts the post-dinner stint of play with ~1.6M and is in 3rd place overall. He has ~$19k in earnings and some decent success here at the Big Stax series. His best run in a Main Event was 20th in the 1100 for $4,177 and he also has a 4th in the Purple Chip Bounty Side Event for $3,841.

Singh gets some added props from the blogger for being a Manchester United fan. Hopefully, a Day 3 appearance will help him quickly forget their 1-2 loss to Huddersfield Town yesterday afternoon.

Zhenjie Hou, Day 2 Level 22

Hou is sitting in 5th place with ~1.4M and is once again a threat deep in a Big Stax event. He is a very consistent performer here at Parx with ~$112k in lifetime winnings and two Main Event Final Tables. His career best score comes from this very event when he finished 4th at Big Stax X for $24,346.

Hou finds himself in a precarious seat with two big stacks on his immediate left and right. John Lichtenstein, who started the day as the chip-leader, is still in the Top 10 with ~1.2M and Pal Zagreda is on his left with ~1M.
