The 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure has arrived! Let's kick it off with a bang, shall we?
Day 1 is about to begin in full force with the $100,000 Super High Roller event. It's the second annual iteration of this event, and it drew a field of 38 runners the first time around in 2011. Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu finished runner-up for a cool million dollars, getting two-outed on the final hand to fall in second. The man who beat him was Eugene Katchalov, and that victory was likely a key factor in his subsequent signing as Ukraine's first Team Pro.
There are already 30 players registered for this edition of the Super High Roller, and we'd expect to see that number climb significantly over the course of the next few hours. We'll take the over on 38 this year. Negreanu and Katchalov will be back to defend their final table appearances from last year, and they'll be joined by the familiar cast of high rolling characters like Scott Seiver, Ike Haxton, Dan Shak, Erik Seidel, Jonathan Duhamel, Masa Kagawa, and the like.
The PCA and the Super High Roller kick off in just about a half hour from now, at high noon local time. Don't wander off on us!
