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.

After 8 levels of play, 12 players had been eliminated and the day was over. Isaac Haxton leads the pack with a stack of 1,240,000. In second place is no one else than everyone's favorite Swede Viktor "Isildur1" Blom with 875,000 chips, and about 100k behind him is Erik Seidel.

GOOOOOOOOOO mr Grospellier, i hope he get back in the game ^^ I'd like to see an Elky vs Isildur final Smile

well I hope that Viktor Blom wins this tournament, he never won a big live tournament before, so this is his opportunity I think.

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…

The funny thing is that Viktor entered yesterday online on pokerstars and won around 50.000 $ from Phil Galfond on PLO lol

I think these high stakes cash games player are participating more for fun if you ask me...

As you all know Viktor Isildur1 Blom took the first place and a along with it a nice 1,25 million prize.

He stated that he will continue to play live mtts in the weeks to come.

YEP, Blom has won the event, but being his style, he'll donk the winnings off by the end of the month.
