The third day of PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) main event in Bahamas is now history. Out of the 184 players who started the day only 64 players were left with chips when the tournament crew called it a day. All of the remaining players are guaranteed to get away with at least $32,500 each. But of course that's peanuts compared to the prize money on the final table.

In the very top of the field is high stakes player Phil "Takechip" D'Auteuil with 1.47 million, closely followed by Sam Greenwood with 1.4 million. Notable players that will return to the tables today are, for example, Barry Greenstein (379k), Luca Pagano (863k) and reigning champion Galen Hall (168k).

Faraz Jaka (picture), the Day 2 chip leader, also made it through to Day 4. Faraz continued playing very good during Day 3 and managed accumulate 1.22 million chips (3rd place). If he continues to play as well during Day 4, then there is no doubt that he will be on the final table, and hopefully he will bring his "lucky hat" with him.

i can't imagine final table without faraz and his lucky hat- that will be the main accent of the final table, never mind the cash. so guys and gals worked for 3 days and won at least $22.500 if they bought in for $10.000, serious payday imo

Looks like The Toilet has left first place open for another one to sit there. And Faraz Jaka isn’t dormez vous! He is already in the still restrict list of players who already accumulate more than 1 million chips, but that doesn’t mean he will have what it takes to get to the final tables, 63 others also want to get there!

It's nice to see he still has a lot of chips, in fact it's pretty hard in a live tournament to maintan your stack of chips....

I think Ben Lamb did something similar last year and was able to win an mtt in the end Smile
