The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is always the first stop in the New Year and 2014 is no different, with the Super High Roller first on the agenda. After a quiet Christmas period we finally have something in the poker world to focus on again!
PokerPlayer did get rather excited at the prospect of Ryan Riess sat next to Scott Seiver for a whole day of high stakes poker. Unfortunately everyone ran bad with the table draw and the two were kept apart, with Riess busting in a huge cooler against Paul Newey. The world champ opted not to use another bullet in his first $100,000 event.
The leader at the end of Day 1 was Martin Finger, who looks set to continue his form since winning the Super High Roller at EPT London a few months ago. Elsewhere Daniel Negreanu busted not one, but two bullets before trying his luck for a third time earlier today. He is no longer in the tournament…
The hugely successful German contingent are all still in the running apart from Tobias Reinkemeier. What odds on another Phillip Gruissem victory?
While that event works it’s way to a conclusion the main event and high roller will get the festival into full swing. The PCA main event starts tomorrow (Tuesday), while the high roller begins later in the week on Saturday.
We’re hoping the numbers aren’t too affected by the horribly cold weather across the Atlantic ocean. America has been hit by some freezing temperatures and thousands of flights have been delayed or cancelled. It certainly sounds like plenty of pros are having trouble getting to the Bahamas, hopefully they can all make it to paradise safely.
We’ll bring you more from the PCA later in the week!
