Table 46 is turning into a real tough spot after the arrival of Ed O’Connell and Chris Csik, who both started the day in the Top 5 and are now seated next to each other.
Saludez is also in that rotation and started in the Top 25 with 437k. Saludez is a Parx tournament regular who recently had the best score of his career at Borgata. In what could be considered a bitter-sweet finish, Saludez exited in 9th in the Kickoff Event for $24,277 bringing his career earnings to ~$32k. He followed that up with a cash in the 300 Main Event for $1,542 and is certainly in excellent form heading into today’s session.
Palma, also at Table 46, has seen some early swings in this session. After losing about two thirds of his stack to Ed O’Connell, he has recuperated his arsenal with a triple up holding JxJx against AxQx/AxQx.
