The final day of the Big Stax XXXI 500 is set to kick-off at noon! The tournament has 18 players returning to battle it out for the $87,185 first-place prize.
Leading the way is a very familiar face in Vineet Pahuja. Pahuja has a long record of tournament cashes and wins dating back to 2007 with earnings closing in on $3,00,000. Pahuja brings almost a double chip average-sized stack into the final day with 4,085,000 but has table-mate Josias Dossantos hot on his tail with 3,890,000.
Dossantos is no slouch either, not only is he second in chips, he brings over 1.1 million in career earnings to the table. With that being said, there is still plenty of tough competition. Their table alone accumulates to over $5,000,000 in lifetime earnings when you just add in Michael Marder and John Alesi, who finished third in this tournament back in August.
