PokerStars' annual Caribbean Adventure got underway on Sunday with a $100,000 Super High Roller spectacular.
After welcoming many of the poker world's top players to the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, the organisers opened the registration desks and began collecting six-figure stacks of cash from the likes of Isaac Haxton, Justin Bonomo and Martin Finger. In total the opening session welcomed 52 players, but with the cash cage still open that number will likely rise before Day 2 kicks off later today. In somewhat unsurprising fashion, Day 1 came to a conclusion with two German players dominating the action. Continuing his recent breakthrough on the international stage and claiming second place on the overall standings was Max Altergott who raked in 707,000 chips to finish just behind the aforementioned Martin Finger. However, despite the advances of Altergott, Jason Koon, Paul Newey and Philipp Gruissem, Finger was able to top the chip counts with 829,000 chips as 37 bagged and tagged their chips ahead of today's session. While Finger and Altergott were thriving at the top of the table, billionaire amateur Guy Laliberte wasn't running so well but still managed to bumble his way through the day. After hitting the rail early, Guy decided to rebuy twice more and racked up three buy-ins before finding his feet and making it through Day 1 with 270,000 chips. Day 2 will kick off later today when the surviving players will be whittled down to a final table.
