Posted on 13 January 2011 by "T".

The player field is now down to 22 in the 2011 PCA Main Event in Bahamas. Leading the field is a woman, the only one left in the tournament. Ana Marquez played fantastic poker during Day 4 and one can't saying anything else than it's a well deserved lead! So what happened to Chris Oliver who was in the lead with 3.67 million when Day 4 started? Well, not much to be honest. Oliver's stack remained almost the same all Day 4 and he ended the day with 3.27 million chips. However, Max Lehmanski, Oliver's closes competitor when Day 4 started, was sent off the rail during the day.

A few notable players that still have the chance to reach the final table and battle for the first prize of 2.3 million dollars are Team PokerStars Pro Chris Moneymaker, Mike Sowers, Eric Froehlich, Eddy Sabsat and Sam Stein.

Chip leader of the tournament is Chris Oliver with 3.6 million chips. Other players with healthy stacks that will join him at the poker tables today are, for example, the 2003 WSOP Champ Chris Moneymaker (1.6m), Max Lehmanski (2.3m), Mike Sowers (1.36m), and Sam Stein (970,000).

Posted on 10 January 2011 by "T".

Day 1b of PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is now in the books. Not less than 913 players signed up for Day 1b and in total the tournament has attracted 1560 players. This means that a prize pool of $15,132,000 and a first prize of $2.3 million is up for grabs. The most interesting player who made it to day Day 2 from Day 1b is Viktor "Isildur1" Blom from Sweden. Blom will bring a 141k stack with him to Day 2 of the tournament and will do everything in his power to reach the final table - just like the other 644 remaining players.

Chip leader of the tournament is no one else than Pieter de Korver with 245,300 chips, but he can't sit back and relax yet as there are plenty of good players, Chris MoneyMaker etc, not far behind in chips. Day 2 will be a very thrilling day to follow since there are so many good players left. Personally, I will keep an eye on Viktor "Isildur1" Blom.
