There's some serious action at the Atlantis Resort and Casino on Paradise Island as the 2012 PCA is now alive and kicking! The first day of the Super High Roller tournament brought a field 32 players (In fact it was 30 players, but two re-entered the tournament) who could afford the buy-in of $100,000, which created a total prize pool of $3,136,000 and a first prize of $1,254,400.

The one who wins the Super High Roller will have already made enough to the entire first semester of 2012, at least! A first prize of $1,2 million is enough to enter the top 10 biggest winnings of the year. If the one who wins this manages to win other big events, we will have this table with a top that can reach $5 million easily! Look at this years result from Viktor Blom: he recover the bad results in the end of 2011 and still got a great profit. But if everything had went nice to him, we would have had reached $5 million in 2011. So this year he can expect a lot more, being just behind Haxton at this time…
