PokerStars Caribbean Adventure bubble bursts, 173 remain

PokerStars Caribbean Adventure bubble bursts, 173 remain

Tuesday, 11 January 2011

Day 2 of the 2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $10,000 Main Event concluded in the wee small hours of this morning (though about 10pm local time) with 173 of the record 1,560 players remaining in contention for a $2.3m first place prize.

US player Adam Geyer makes this his second cash at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure since his 19th place finish at PCA 2009 and this time he has the overnight chip lead. He managed to bag up 909,000 heading into Day 3 with blinds at 3,000/6,000 when they return. Team PokerStars Pro and 2003 WSOP champion Chris Moneymaker made it to the top of the PokerStars Pro chip counts with 650,500 to end the night; good for fifth place overall.

Speaking of PokerStars Pros, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier had a wild ride. Starting Day 2 with just 8,600 – about five big blinds at the time – he went on a rollercoaster ride to take his stack to 180,000 within the hour. He finishes the day with just over twenty big blinds at the 3,000/6,000 level.

Representing the UK still are JP Kelly, looking to add a PCA title to his two WSOP bracelets; Robert “Vega_Lion” Akery; EPT Vilamoura champion Toby Lewis and EPT/WPT champion Jake Cody. Both Praz Bansi and Liv Boeree busted in the Day 2 action.

Each of the 173 remaining players is guaranteed a payday of $17,500 but all eyes are on the final table. The last eight standing will each walk home with $202,000 but most importantly the top four finishers will become dollar millionaires.
