Day 2 of the highly anticipated PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event took place yesterday and the riveting poker action which the players demonstrated provided a lot of entertainment to everyone. The poker action in Atlantis is well on its way towards the final table and there are only a couple of days left for the players to demonstrate their potential and amass more chips. At the end of the day, Russian player Oleg Titov managed to reach the first place on the temporary leader board with the help of his chip stack amounting to some 493,000.
After this week saw the starting flights of the Main Event, some of the participants made it to Day 2 of the action. Many of them had to part ways with their dreams of the coveted first-place prize and this resulted in a total of 101 players surviving the second day of the Main Event. The overall pace of the game was fast and this is not a surprise to anyone, as all players want to get their hands on the big cashes that come with the top positions on this culminating tournament. It was also confirmed that there have been a total of 582 players which have participated in the poker tournament. The information was collected after the late registration finished at the beginning of Day 2.
Day 2 Brings More Clarity to the Players
Only the top 87 positions on the official leader board are going to receive a payout and as it has been confirmed, it is going to be a generous one. The total prize pool which has been amassed through the help of all participants and their buy-ins has now reached $5,645,000.
This, of course, is going to result in a generous payday for the big winner, since the skillful player will be able to bag a total of $1,081,100 at the end of the final table. This will also bring the winner a Platinum Pass which is desired by all participants in the poker tournament. This brings us to the action of Day 2, at the beginning of which we had a promising chip leader.At the end of Day 1B, there was a poker player who became the chip leader of both starting flights combined and this was Jean Ateba.
Among all 324 players returning for Day 2 he was the top player, but soon after the start of the action poker players to the likings of Jonathan West and David Peters made their way towards the top. Unfortunately, among the players which had to leave the race early was also last year’s champion of the Main Event Christian Harder. He has a lot of experience on the felt and he was one of the promising pros present, but he could not make it further in the run. On the other hand, PokerStars ambassadors Liv Boeree, Victor Ramdin, and Barry Greenstein continue ahead.
Day 3 of the PCA Main Event is scheduled to commence this Thursday, bringing an even more riveting action to all poker enthusiasts.
