Main Event

Seat 3: David Bernstein, 30, Canada -- 1,960,000 chips

David Bernstein

David Bernstein is the only PokerStars Caribbean Adventure finalist who effectively got to The Bahamas for nothing at all.

Back in December, the 30-year-old - who works in sales for Mill St Brewery - took part in a competition run by online payment company Ukash. Everyone who took part in the “Ukash Ultimate Experience” was entered into a prize draw – and David Bernstein was the player selected at random just three days after Christmas.

The prize included free flights to the Bahamas, nine nights’ accommodation, a live tutorial, a meet-and-greet with a member of Team PokerStars Pro and – most importantly – a seat in the Main Event. A week ago he told the PokerStars blog: “The feeling of winning the competition was surreal. It felt like a dream. Now I am
going to try and win the tournament and take the money home to my family."
