One of the most exciting poker festival of the year kicks off tomorrow but one player who won’t be there is former PCA Main Event Champion, Galen Hall.
The American took down the title in 2011 and banked $2.3 million before earning a further $470,000 last year for his third place finish in the Super High Roller event.However, due to college commitments he won’t be attending this year’s poker party in the sun.Indeed, it seems that Galen isn’t the only famous face not taking part in the PCA this year. Tournament wizard Yevgeniy Timoshenko is also passing up on the opportunity to spend two weeks in the sun after being invited to play in the NBC’s Heads Up Championship.Despite the two recent dropouts, there will be no shortage of star power in the Bahamas this year as the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier and Liv Boeree are already primed and ready to play. The action will certainly kick off with a bang as tomorrow will see the start of the $100,000 Super High Roller rebuy event, before the $10,000 Main Event begins on Monday.
