PokerStars Caribbean Adventure finds new Super High Roller winner

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller has crowned a champion. Cary Katz outlasted a field of 48 players to take first place and put $1.4 million in his pocket. He overcame significant odds to achieve the win, having entered the final table with the second to lowest chip stack. The 47-year-old, who started the College Loan Corp. in 1999, considers himself only an amateur player; an amateur who’s been able to rack up more than $13.6 million in tournament play.

All eyes were on Bryn Kenney as the final seven started to throw around the chips due to his control of two-thirds of the chips. However, he caught a couple of bad breaks in all-in hands to finish the tournament in third place. Kenney is a veteran of the event, and has finished in the money four times. Two third-place finishes and a runner-up finish have awarded him an impressive $3.4 million to make him the winningest player overall in the tournament. His third-place win added almost $687,000 to his coffers.

The final heads-up action came down to him against Justin Bonomo, who was responsible for sending Daniel Negreanu home in fourth place. Katz led heads-up play from the start, and he never let up. After picking up quad sevens against Bonomo’s full house in the penultimate hand, Katz nailed the coffin shut with pocket eights against an A-K hand that couldn’t pair on the board. Bonomo took home a little more than $1 million for his efforts.
