Some details on the High Roller PCA tournament

Yesterday was held the Super High Roller of PokerStars Caribbean adventure (PCA). The buy-in for this tournament was $ 100,000 and could if expect a fairly small group of participant given the admission price say, more or less accessible to the average player.


Tent - eight players are finally registered with several known names: Negreanu, Guy Laliberté, Jonathan Duhamel, aka PokerJohn on PokerCollectif, David Benyamine, Elky, Phil Laak, Viktor Bloom.

The latest news, it was Tobias Reinkemeier German who was head of the tournament that, like Duhamel against Affleck in the Main Event of the WSOP 2010, it has cracked Shawn Buchanan ACEs with his valets to become leader in chips before the Canadian Daniel Negreanu who had 848,000 tokens.

It must be doubly happy, him which said, has much to prove in 2011. In addition, Daniel Negreanu and Jason Mercier have embarked a major bet for the 2011 year relatively to their performance in tournaments. If one of the two climbs in the cashes of an event, he will receive $2,000 on the other. $ 5,000 in the case of a final table.

At last, only 23 players remained.

Among them:

Phil Laak is the smallest stack with 99,000 chips.
Antonio Esfandiari (330,000)
Daniel "jungleman12" Cates (622.000)
Nick Schulman (705.000)
Andrew Lichtenberger (494.000)
Vivek Rajkumar (483,000)
Andrew Robl (324,000)
Mike "Timex" McDonald (269,000)

It is worth noting that two Quebecers as well as Viktor Bloom are all out of the tournament. Bertrand "Elky" Grospellier was also released after losing a flip.
