Main Event

The Final Table Awaits

Faraz Jaka

Welcome back to PokerNews' coverage of the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure from the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island.

The Main Event began almost one week ago and after six days of poker, a field of 1,072 is left with just eight players looking to capture the $2,000,000 first-place prize and a place in the PCA record books. Leading the way with 6.47 million is Faraz Jaka, the man who has held the chip lead after Days 2, 4, and now into the final table.

Yesterday's action saw the chip lead change multiple times throughout the late stages of the night as Jaka, Kyle Julius (6.45 million), and Xuan Liu (6.355 million) are within one big blind of each other. Firmly entrenched in fourth place is Ruben Visser (4.4 million), followed by John Dibella in fifth place (3.465 million).

David Bernstein (1.96 million), Mark Drover (1.43 million), and 2009 PCA Runner-Up Anthony Gregg (1.16 million) round out the final table, each with less than seventeen big blinds, so don't be surprised to see some fast and furious action in the early stages.

The final table will begin at 1:00pm local time, but our coverage will begin at about 1:40pm along with the live stream.
