Big Stax 300 Finale Begins At 1:00pm #ParxBigStax

We are down to three tables in the Big Stax 300, with a new champion to be crowned over the next (24) hours (well maybe). The reason that the word maybe is used? Defending champion Scott Blackman (Little Egg Harbor, NJ) is still alive, and he headlines a very talented group of players trying to make sure that he doesn’t go back-to-back. Chris Kostoulas (New York, NY) returns as the chip leader with 5,750,000, putting on a dominant display to end Day 2. If it’s local notables your looking for, Day 3 has them as well, with Ray Ross, Mohammad Farah, Kevin Lutz, Joseph Galazzo, Jonathan Borenstein, and Jim Tesone all looking to put their hands on the trophy once things are decided. Will we see one of the relative unknowns make their name in the poker community? All of these answers will be known as the action unfolds today at 1:00pm, with live coverage picking up once the cards are in the air. If you’d like to follow all of the goings on this afternoon/evening, make sure to check out the live updates page by CLICKING HERE.
