It's time for the final table in the High Roller Event of PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. 8 players have survived the starting field of 84 players (84 players who could afford the buy-in of $25,000) and now they will fight for the first prize of $576,240. None of the 8 finalists are probably familiar names to many people. However, many of them have some great results in the past and are probably players that we will hear much more about in the future.
The most interesting thing about the final table has to be that 1 of the 8 remaining players are girls, which is really impressive as only 9 women took part in the tournament (1 of them ended up in 9th place). The one that will bring the most chips (1,072,000) to the final table today is Tobias Reinkemeier from Germany (picture). Reinkemeier is playing his first ever final table and it's not hard to understand that he's very excited and happy about it.
"I feel really great. I've had so many deep cashes - 11th in London, 23rd in Barcelona, 46th here in the main event - but no final table," he said. "Now I've made it. It's an amazing feeling, especially as I am going in to the final as chip leader, with a big buy-in and a field so strong."
