PCA - Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure tournament logoFaraz "The-Toilet 0" Jaka will enter the final table of the 2012 PCA (Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure) main event as the chip leader, as he managed to finish Day 5 with 6.47 million in chips.

Jaka will have some company at the top of the leaderboard, as both Kyle Julius (6.45 million) and Xuan Liu (6.355 million) both finished Day 5 with over 6 million in chips as well.

Here are the full chip counts heading into the final table:

Faraz Jaka - 6,470,000
Kyle Julius - 6,450,000
Xuan Liu - 6,355,000
Ruben Visser - 4,400,000
John Dibella - 3,465,000
David Bernstein - 1,960,000
Mark Drover - 1,430,000
Anthony Gregg - 1,160,000

The final table was set after John Dibella put a horrific beat on Lee Goldman.

The two players got their stacks into the middle pre-flop and turned over:

Goldman - KK
Dibella - 99

Goldman was well in front with his pair of Kings and was looking for a key double-up. The river brought the 9h, giving Dibella a set of Nines and sending Goldman to the rail in shock.

All eight of the surviving players are guaranteed at least $156,400 for making it this far. The winner of the event will walk away with $2 million, while the runner-up will take home $1,275,000.
