Portuguese Filipe Oliveira emerged as the top winner of partypoker's 2018 Caribbean Poker Party $10M guaranteed $5,300 buy-in NLHE event.
The event attracted a player field of 1,815 entries which means that the organizer needed to add about $925,000 as an overlay, despite the last-minute surge of entrants (they needed at least 2,000 entries to reach the guarantee; rake not counted).
The new segment added to partypoker's LIVE MILLIONS series is now in full swing. The Caribbean Poker Party runs from November 9 to 18, 2018, and the venue is the brand new Baha Mar in the Bahamas, the largest hotel and casino complex in the Caribbean that opened in June.
partypoker expects more than 2,000 poker players to attend for over a week of sun, sea and poker in Caribbean paradise!

The German Poker pro Martin Finger has once again been in trouble after a night out partying (read EPT Prague winner arrested by the police). This time he was thrown out from a club during PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in Bahamas. Besides that he punched the former world champion Jonathan Duhamel the face outside the club.
After 5 days of play, the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Bahamas main event is down to a final table with 8 players. Faraz Jaka (picture), the day 2 and day 4 chip leader, is still in the lead. Jaka will bring 6,47 million chips to the final table. Xuan Liu (picture), the last remaining women, and Kyle Julians are very close behind Jaka in chips. So, the final table will be everything but a walk in the park for Jaka.
Faraz Jaka, who lead the way into 3 day, is once again back in the lead as Day 4 of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure main event has come to an end with 24 remaining players. Faraz turned his 1,22 million stack into a monstrous 4,1 million stack during Day 4 - about 1,4 million more chips than his closest opponent Alex Fritzgerald.
Unfortunately Team PokerStars Pro Berry Greenstein was knocked out in 25th place for $46k. This was far from the first time that "The Robin Hood of Poker" went deep in a major tournament but missed out on the big cash. We can only wish him better luck next time.
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.
During PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in January the 8th edition of Wold Cup of Poker will be played. Seven nations will battle for the team title of poker, and it's Italy that will return to Bahamas as reigning champions. The great thing about Wold Cup of Poker is that anyone can represent their own country. Yes, that's right!
If you got what it takes, you can become one of the players who will represent your country in Bahamas in January with the chance to walk away with a share of a $290,000 prize pool! There are already freerolls and satellites for as little as $1 up running at PokerStars. You'll find more information on World Cup of Poker on PokerStars website.
