The 2009 and 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champions are seated beside one another here in the Imperial Ballroom, and they've both had success thus far at the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
Last night, Team PokerStars Pro Joe Cada shipped a $2,000 side event, banking $175,550. It was his biggest cash since winning the Main Event in 2009 - his previous biggest cash came at last year's PCA, where he finished 11th in this event for $51,450. Fellow Team Pro Jonathan Duhamel has had an incredible PCA - he's made three final tables, including the $100,000 Super High Roller (4th, $313,600), a $5,000 Turbo Eight-Max Event (5th, $17,990), and a he won the $5,000 Eight-Max Event ($239,830).
Both players have certainly performed like champions this week, and we'll keep an eye on them as the day progresses.
