$100k "Super High Roller" Event Now Underway
The 2013 PCA (Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure), which bills itself as the "Best 10 Days of Poker on the Planet", is now underway in the Bahamas.
The first event of this year's schedule, the $100,000 "Super High Roller" event, is now underway.
As you can imagine, many of the biggest names in poker are taking part in this event. Here are just some of the names that have entered:
Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier
The "Feature" table currently has this line-up:
1. Steve O'Dwyer
2. Antonio Esfandiari
3. Phil Ivey
4. Mike Watson
6. Phillipp Gruissem
7. David Benefield
8. Isaac Haxton
According to Pokerstarsblog.com, 39 players are currently playing in this event, and all 39 are still alive.
Defending champion Viktor "Isildur1" Blom doesn't appear to be participating in this year's event. Blom was still under his Pokerstars sponsorship deal at this time last year, but has since signed a deal to represent Full Tilt Poker.
The turnout for this year's event is already well ahead of 2012. Last year there were a total of 30 entries and 2 rebuys (rebuys are allowed in this event), which ended up creating a total prize pool of $3,136,000.
