Just like the organisers predicted, Day 1B of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event attracted a massive field. A total of 649 players entered the second starting day and lots of familiar faces could be spotted at the tables, including actor Jason Alexander, sports star Michael Phelps and poker pros Tom Dwan, Phil Hellmuth, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi and Phil Ivey.
Approximately 375 players made it through the day and will join the 150 or so from Day 1A for Day 2. Of the people mentioned above, Grospellier, Alexander and Tom Dwan failed to make it through Day 1B. "The Grinder" played extremly well and accumulated a stack of 216,900 - about 40k less than the chip leader Ashton Griffin (253,700), who is the overall chip leader heading into Day 2.
