Twelve days in the Atlantis Resort & Casino, Bahamas is reaching its crescendo. We’ve had the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship set records and generate amazing stories—not least the incredible run of Platinum Pass-qualifying eventual champ Ramon Colillas. We’ve had the Super High Roller set attendance highs. We’ve brought you (we like to think) some great interviews and unique profiles.
Now it has come down to this: The $10,000 buy-in PCA Main Event. It has already made headlines with setting a five-year high prize pool record, and the final day is guaranteed to have some fascinating action and stories from the felt. We’ve got the always charismatic Chino Rheem as the chip leader. Then there’s 67-year-old Canadian PokerStars qualifier, Scott Wellenbach, as the second stack. Then four more players behind him with some seasoned live grinders looking for career-high scores.
We’re talking serious money! First to bust will take home almost $300,000, then each spot jumps up at least $100,000 after each additional bust. Second place will walk away with just under $1 million; first place prize is over $1.5 million.
Catch all the action, all cards up, on a slight delay through the official PokerStars live stream. The Twitch version is embedded below, but it will also be up on PokerStars.TV and PokerStars Youtube.
