The action for the $100,000 Super High Roller tournament got underway Saturday in the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) series. More than 54 players have entered the race at the Atlantis Resort and Casino for part of the $2.5 million in guaranteed prize money to be awarded. High-stakes poker pro Scott Seiver went into Day 2 in the lead with 804,000 chips, but couldn’t maintain his momentum. An all-in with pocket Queens was met with pocket Kings, and was one of the first to be eliminated on Day 2.
Seiver won the same event in 2013, and took home just over $2 million in cash. He ranks behind Bryn Kenney and Dan Shak in overall Super High Roller earnings for the annual PCA series, which dates back to 2011. Kenney has pocketed just under $3.5 million, while Shak has taken in a little more than $2.2 million. Shak went into Day 2 with a small stack of 246,000, putting him at an extreme disadvantage that only got worse. Bryn Kenney, who made it through Day 1 with 548,000 chips, improved his stack to 1,485,000 to finish Day 2 in fourth place.
The event saw participation from other several well-known players. Daniel Negreanu, Sam Greenwood and Ivan Luca dropped in, and all three advanced to the final seven. Adrian Mateos and Kevin Hart didn’t find Lady Luck, and both busted out on Day 2. The winner of the tournament will pick up just under $1.5 million and the runner-up will earn $1 million.
