Two Canadian Poker Pros Still in Contention at PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller Final Table

The Bahamas is one of the world’s top tourist destination. The archipelago is well-known for its stunning beaches, breathtaking views and sparkling blue sea. The number of attractions and vibrant nightlife is one of the most charming aspects of the island destination. Quite unsurprisingly, the Bahamas has turned into a preferred poker destination, which has a special place in the long and rich history of PokerStars.

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) kicked off on 6th January and it is to run all the way through 14th January. The sponsors of the poker event unveiled a rich schedule of 31 poker tournaments, including the thrilling $10,300 PCA Main Event. Currently, the $100,000 Super High Roller tournament is in full swing at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort.

The big buy-in events have always been the center of attention due to the high stakes and qualitative poker action. The recent PCA Super High Roller event made no exception to the rule, attracting 48 high-caliber poker players from all over the world.

The poker field has been narrowed to just 7 players, who are competing for the life-changing prize pool of $4,737,600. Tension keeps on building up as some of the world’s most prominent poker players are to appear on the poker arena. Last year was an incredible year for a number of Canadian poker players, who demonstrated accomplished skills on the poker felt.

This year has started strongly for the Canadian poker players Daniel Negreanu and Sam Greenwood, who are among the final 7 contenders at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller final table. According to the latest updates, Ivan Luca from Argentina is the chip leader, holding a stack of 2,760,000 in chips.

His nearest rival is Justin Bonomo with 2,695,000 in chips. He is closely followed by the Canadian phenomenon Daniel Negreanu, who has built an emporium of 2,415,000 in chips. The rest of the final table consists of Bryn Kenney (with 1,485,000 in chips), Isaac Haxton (with 1,095,000 in chips), Cary Katz (with 855,000 in chips) and Sam Greenwood (with 695,000 in chips).

Sam Greenwood is the other Canadian poker notable, who is still in play. Even though he is to enter the closing stages of the event as the shortest stack, he has really good chances to turn the tides in his favor. Last year, the Canadian poker heavyweight made the headlines after winning one of the most prestigious poker events, and more precisely 2017 Caribbean Poker Party Festival Main Event. Greenwood added $1,000,000 to his impressive bankroll and lifted the long-coveted trophy after defeating a stacked field of 1,061 entries.
