PCA 2013 – Seiver wins Super High Roller, now it is time for the Main Event

  • PCA 2013 is finally underway with the biggest event over. Today is the day for Main Event. Also, news includes a new member to join IveyPoker.

  • You all know that the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure is ongoing in the Bahamas where probably every biggest poker star is now playing. Yesterday $100k buy-in Super High Roller event ended is Scott Seiver stealing the title from the hands of David “Doc” Sands. The win refuels Seiver's bankroll by over $2 million.

    Even though Sands sat at the Final table as a chip leader all the way to the Heads-up play, he was unable to finish the job. For the efforts he will snatch just over $1.2 million. Below we give you the Final Table that actually saw Antonio Esfandiari as a bubble boy.

    PCA 2013 $100k Super High Roller Results:

    While the winner of the event is probably still celebrating, we turn our heads to see the action in the $10.000 buy-in Main Event where Day 1A had just ended. Many are happy to advance to Day 2 while others are sure not giving up without a fight and will be re-buying on Day 1B.

    Today 320 players started the event while overall 162 have won their return tickets on Day 2. Tomorrow we will definitely see much more players enter as well as some coming back from Day 1A. Among the returning bunch we may see the likes of Joseph Cheong, Barry Greenstein and Faraz Jaka that were eliminated.

    On Day 1B we are looking forward to see the biggest names in the business including 13 WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, Pokerstars pros Jason Mercier and Daniel Negreanu. We can only guess how big is going to be Day1B but mind that this is 10th Anniversary PCA. Moreover, last year only around 30% of the total player pool started the day on Day 1A (not even counting reentries). And one more reason why we didn't see many of the famous players today is that the first $2000 buy-in Open Faced Chinese Poker event is held today.
