The Caribbean is a small piece of fun-filled paradise on the earth. The crystal waters and the blissful weather are magnetic enough to attract the attention of millions of people around the world. Vibrant nightlife or a romantic sunset, the Caribbean is the place where dreams come true. In fact, one of America’s most popular poker grinder Cary Katz can prove this statement. He is the latest winner of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Super High Roller tournament.
The American poker heavyweight was the last player standing on the poker felt yesterday. He managed to defeat a 48-entry field and pocket a nice first-place prize of $1,492,340. Currently, the player’s bankroll amount to $13,698,249, but he will certainly keep on boosting that amount. This is Katz’ second best live cash in his career.
However, the player’s journey to the first place was a rocky one as he needed to face some of the most fearsome poker legends on the field, including the two Canadian poker luminaries Daniel Negreanu and Sam Greenwood. Nevertheless, the road full of challenging twists could not stop Katz to demonstrate excellent strategy.
Day 3 of the $100,000 Super High Roller Event kicked off yesterday with 7 remaining players. Ivan Luca was the player to enter the poker field as the chip leader. The chip lead has changed hands throughout the final table, but Katz was the player to navigate his way to the first place. The American poker player needed to lock horns with his fellow countryman Justin Bonomo in a heads-up duel.
High-Profile Canadian Poker Players Perform Excellent
Even though the two Canadians, who managed to reach the final table, could not bring the first-place prize at home, it should be admitted that they had quite a ride over the course of the tournament. The two players were shining brightly on the star-studded poker arena. Sam Greenwood started Day 3 as the shortest stack. All hopes for the player to continue his deep run in the tournament were quashed. Bryn Kenney was responsible for Greenwood’s elimination. The Canadian player had to settle for the seventh-place finish and a payout of $248,720.
Daniel Negreanu appeared to be the center of media attention once again. The Canadian poker guru marked the start of this year with a fourth-place finish and a staggering prize of $521,140. His poker fans are convinced that this is just Negreanu’s warming up for the upcoming poker year and he will continue defending his poker reputation.
That is not the end of the PCA. The Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas is currently sizzling with poker action. The festival is to wrap up on 14th November, when PokerStars is to crown the latest PCA Main Event winner.
