There are a few things that we know about Day 2 of the Big Stax Championship…the cards will be in the air at 12:00pm, (54) players are returning from a total of (120) entries, Matt Glantz (Lafayette Hill, PA) is the chip leader after two starting flights (540,500), and we are coming back to (60) minute levels. What we don’t know is how many plays are going to show up before the cards are in the air, to buy in with (20) big blinds. You can follow all of the Day 2 action by CLICKING HERE, and saving the URL of the “live updates page.” That same page will carry updates throughout the entire series, offering up everything you need to know about Big Stax X.
We are only a few minutes away from Day 1B of the $2,500 Big Stax Championship, the second of two flights for this prestigious event. There was a total of (44) entries yesterday for Day 1A, with (20) players successfully bagging chips for tomorrow’s Day 2. Everyone is currently chasing Aaron Overton (Philadelphia, PA), who bagged 538,000 at the end of the night, good enough for the Day 1A chip lead. Players have already started the enter the tournament area, as the cards are moments away from getting in the air for Day 1B. Live updates will be offered all day, and can be found by CLICKING HERE, or clicking on the image of the Big Stax logo before.
The poker room has been buzzing since the schedule was released for the opening event of the Big Stax X series, and we can finally say the day is here. After a lead that included “random seat giveaways” and nightly satellites, the Big Stax Championship 2500 gets the cards in the air at 11:00am. This tournament, which represents a culmination of a “Big Stax year,” is expected to attract a special field, made up of some of the best players in our community…and beyond. You can follow all of the action on the live updates page, just by CLICKING HERE and saving the URL.
We are less than (24) hours away from the beginning of the Big Stax X series, with the first ever $2,500 Big Stax Championship getting cards in the air at 11:00am. If you’ve been walking around the poker room over the past few weeks, you may have noticed a “schedule card” that noted a tonight’s Big Stax 2500 Satellite as a $200 + 40 event. Please note that the buy-in is $300 + 40, and we do apologize for any confusion or incovenience.
HIGH HANDS ARE BACK!
Beginning this Friday (1/9), we will be alternating $1000 hourly high hands with random seat giveaways to one of our Big Stax 2500 Championship event super satellites. We will be doing these from 4pm-11pm on Friday through Sunday through Sunday 1/18. This is the schedule we will follow:
4p-5p : $1000 hourly high hand
5:30p : Four $230 random tournament seats
6p-7p : $1000 hourly high hand
7:30p : Four $230 random tournament seats
8p-9p : $1000 hourly high hand
9:30p : Four $230 random tournament seats
10p-11p : $1000 hourly high hand
Tournament seat winners will be given the option to play in any of the four $230 supersatellites to our Big Stax 2500 Championship event that will run on Friday 1/16 and 1/23 at 7pm and Saturday 1/17 and 1/24 at noon.
Players have been been anticipating the announcement of the first Big Stax series of 2015, so the buzz surrounding the release of the Big Stax X schedule (1/16-2/23) shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. What should raise some eyebrows though, is the addition of the “Big Stax Championship” to the schedule. The $2,500 buy-in event will now headline the February series, which was already the the most popular amongst the players.
The larger buy-in event should not overshadow the staple trophy events that have made the “Big Stax” brand what it is today…the Big Stax 300, Big Stax 500, and Big Stax 1500. Those three events, as well as satellites and cash tournaments, are all included on the schedule. More information will be released (including structure sheets for each tournament) in the upcoming week, but at the moment, you can find the full schedule on the Big Stax live updates page by CLICKING HERE.
The final day of the Big Stax IX series is upon us, as Day 3 of the Big Stax 1100 begins at 1:00pm. The final table was reached at 11:30pm last night, with play continuing until nine were left. After the elimination of Dean Chen (Ellenville, NY) in 10th place, the bagging process begun, and players exited for a good nights rest. You can look back at all of the Day 2 action, as well as follow Day 3 by CLICKING HERE and visiting the live updates page.
After a few “days off” from Big Stax trophy events, the series’ $1,100 “Main Event” begins this afternoon, and will conclude the shortened schedule. It’s been a few days since Chad Rosow (New York, NY) and Joe Black (New York, NY) made a deal to end the Big Stax 300 event, but the tournament action in the poker room continued on. On the schedule for Tuesday night was a $340 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em Re-Entry event, which was won by Parx regular Rocco Luciano (Philadelphia, PA). The side-event is one that Rocco had history in, finding him victorious in the $200 Deep Stack NLH that was run during the Big Stax VI series.
Players then had a day off before yesterday’s satellite into the Big Stax 1100, which then brings us to this afternoon. Cards will be in the air for the event at 11:00am, as the first of two starting flights kicks off the action. Live coverage will begin just before the tournament starts, and will continue through the conclusion of the event.

The Big Stax series is officially back, with cards in the air shortly for Day 1A of the Big Stax 300 (11:00am). The first of two trophy events for this “mini-series” is expected to attract a pretty large field, with four starting flights scheduled into the weekend. Live coverage of the event will be provided from start to finish, and can be found by heading over to the newly designed (and dedicated) “Big Stax Live Updates Page.”
It’s coming up on holiday time, and Parx Poker has a little “present” for it’s players…an addition of a fifth Big Stax series before the calendar turns over. Big Stax IX runs from Dec. 2-15, and offers up a “condensed” schedule with two trophy events, one deep stack tournament, and two satellites.
A newly designed live updates page has been launched for the series, including links to both the schedule and structure sheet. Make sure to save that URL, because coverage for each Big Stax series that follows will be found there as well (including archives of series past).
