A naturally star-studded field emerged for the world’s second most attended poker tournament at the PokerStarsCaribbean Adventure main event.
The PokerStars Pros, of course, turned out in droves with Greg Raymer, Chris Moneymaker, Daniel Negreanu, Dennis Phillips, Barry Greenstein, Noah Boeken, Jason Mercier and John Duthie all taking a seat on the opening day. Fortunately for the world’s largest poker site, their boys made a fight of it. Amongst the 430 survivors of Day 1a were Phillips, Negreanu and Greenstein – all boasting decent stacks, but none close to touching chip leader Wayne Bentley on 329,500 chips. Last year the Main Event generated over $12,000,000 in prize money with satellite qualifier Poorya Narazi taking home a cool $3m for his first place finish. This year PokerStars is hoping his $99 into $3,000,000 win will have a mini-Moneymaker Effect and make the 2010 PCA the biggest ever. Check back tomorrow to see if they succeeded.
