Parx Big Stax V Announced for Feb. 20-March 10


On Tuesday, Parx Casino announced the schedule for the fifth installment of the "BigStax" Poker Series. BigStaxV kicks off on Feb. 20 with Big Stax 300, a $330 buy-in, reentry event with three starting flights, and concludes with the Big Stax 1500, which features the same format.

The nine-event series also includes a $500 buy-in heads-up tournament, a pot-limit Omaha/no-limit hold'em mix tournament, and an Omaha eight-or-better tournament.

"I'm really looking forward to ParxBigStaxV," Parx Poker Ambassador Matt Glantz tells PokerNews. "The first ever BigStax event was just a year ago, and we had 1,361 entries for a $300+30 event. It was a huge success beyond any of our expectations, and was by far the largest poker tournament ever held in Pennsylvania. I'm hoping we can beat that mark this time around."

Vimy Ha won the $1,000 buy-in event at ParxBigStaxIV in October, earning $100,000.
