Patrick Kelly Heads PCA Main Event
Friday, 11 January 2013
The money bubble has burst at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure with all 59 survivors guaranteed a payday of at least $26,000. Patrick Kelly leads the way but there are plenty of big names looming.
Kelly closed day day with a stack of 1,750,000 giving him a handy lead over closest rivals Joe Serock 1,320,000 and Darren Elias 1,040,000. The challenge from the Mizrachi family is still there in the form of Robert who'll return with 783,000 rather than brother Michael who hit the rail.
Other notables still in the hunt for the $1.85m first prize include former World Champion Carlos Mortensen 534,000, Eugene Katchalov 353,000 and the latest addition to Team PokerStars Pro, Eugene KatchalovJake Cody, who has 247,000.
A Moneymaker-esque performance still remains a possibility too with Argentina's Nicolas Godoy, who qualified online for just $10, very much in contention with 848,000.
The action resumes at 5pm UK time with blinds at 5,000/10,000 with an ante of 1,000. The average stack is just under 502,000.
The chip leaders are as follows:
Patrick Kelly 1,750,000
Joe Serock 1,320,000
Darren Elias 1,040,000
Michael Lipman 1,035,000
Owen Crowe 1,000,000
Maxim Panyak 989,000
Nicolas Godoy 848,000
Yann Dion 829,000
Jerry Wong 808,000
Anthony Borde 796,000
