Ritchie has made a nice move since the dinner break and is up to ~250k with chip-leader Alex Khanas on his immediate right. He has ~$151k in live earnings and two Big Stax Final Tables under his belt. He split the 500 Main Event heads-up for $74,202 as well as a 7th in the 1500 Main Event for $26,326. Ritchie will feel right at home going deep in this structure and is well on his way to punching his ticket into Day 2.
Yanchek is up to ~230k and putting himself into a nice position midway through Level 11. He is an experienced tournament player with $224k in live earnings but has never cashed at Parx. Yanchek’s best score, and biggest opportunity, came from an 8th place finish in the Borgata Winter Open WPT in January 2016. That finish earned him $97,458 as well as a ton of experience going deep in a major event.
