This is Govert Metaal's second time making the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $25,000 High Roller final table. Last year, Metaal maneuvered his way to a fifth-place finish worth $240,470. He'll be looking to best that effort this year, but will enter the final table sixth in chips with a little over half of the average. His finish in this event last year was the largest of his career, but Metaal's had a few big scores on record.
Last year, the Dutchman won a €1,000 side event at EPT Barcelona for €78,400. He's also placed second in a $5,000 side event at the Festa Al Lago in 2010 for $85,606 and sixth at The Big Event Main Event in Los Angeles in 2011 for $75,000.
Metaal has $809,371 in career tournament earnings and will eclipse the million dollar mark if he can get into the top five spots.
