aissa khirani
Aissa Khirani, Day 1A Level 7

Khirani holds the lead with ~200k, 4x the starting stack. He was featured during last week’s 500 Main Event as a Day 1 leader but failed to make the money. Khirani is once again off to another good start and will look to make the money this time around and potentially threaten his 2nd Big Stax Final Table.

zhenjie hou
Zhenjie Hou, Day 1A Level 7

Hou is in 2nd place with ~163k. He has been a very consistent Big Stax performer with Final Tables in the 500 and 1100 Main Events. Hou’s most recent success was taking the 3rd largest prize in a 3-way chop, $21,127, in the 200 Main Event last December. In total, Hou has $153k in live earnings and with plenty of experience here at Parx, could find himself adding a large chunk to that number this weekend.

andrea finkelstein
Andrea Finkelstein, Day 1A Level 7

Finkelstein rounds out the Top 3 with ~147k. She is no stranger to running deep in the largest of the three Main Events in the Big Stax series with a 13th and 40th in the 1500. In total, she has $46k in career cashes and will be hoping to get over the hump and make her first Big Stax Final Table.
