Level 3 (150/300/50)
Total Entrants: 20
The Day 1A field has nearly doubled in size in the last level and more familiar faces are starting to make their way into play. Most of the players entered so far are local to Western Pennsylvania and will do their best to make sure this main event trophy stays local.
Frank Dellaria has cashed in two straight main events at Rivers and is in the hunt for a “triple crown” to cap off his 2016. Dellaria is second on the Rivers all-time list for career cashes and will earn his 25th should he make a trip to the payout cage. There are few players in the field capable of matching Dellaria’s unique table presence and a trip to Monday’s final table would be a “made for TV” experience.
Zach Mullennix is native to Pittsburgh but now calls Florida home. Mullennix has put together a string of quality results in 2016 including a deep run in the World Series of Poker “Millionaire Maker” event and a cash in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship in August. Mullennix won a title in Pompano Beach earlier this year and wouldn’t mind his holiday trip home capped off with a second victory for the year.
