Sun. Sand. Cash. The poker action continued at the Atlantis Resort and Casino in the Bahamas. Only 43 players remain in the hunt for the 2018 PCA title and $1 million in cash. Karl Stark and David Peters both have big stacks in excess of 1.1M. Liv Boeree, Adrian Mateos, Jack Sinclair, Shawn Buchanan, and author Maria Konnikova are among those still alive. Meanwhile, Jason Koon binked the single-day $25K High Roller for a $420K score.

And then there were 43! The 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is down to the final 43 players in the Main Event. The bubble popped mid-way through Day 3 and by the end of the night, only 43 fortunate souls bagged up chips. They will return on Day 4 and slug it out as the field races toward the final table. The two big stacks are Karl Stark from Sweden and American pro David Peters. Both bagged up at least 1.1M at the end of Day 3.

Journalist and author Maria Konnikova is the shortest stack still remaining in the Main Event. The best-selling author of Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes locked up a cash after surviving the bubble. Konnikova is writing The Biggest Bluff, a book about her experiences as a noob on the international circuit. She's got a lot to write about, eh? Konnikova outlasted 290 players to win the PCA National Championship a couple of days ago. Konnikova banked $84,600 and she won one of the coveted Platinum Passes for the 2018 PokerStars Players Championship. Heck of run, eh? And it's not over. Konnikova is hoping she can work some magic on Day 4 and extend her auspicious run.

Oleg Titov was the chipleader at the start of Day 3. The Russian could not hold onto the lead, but he still bagged up 938K, good enough for third overall. Rounding out the Main Event Top 5 are Bartosz Stasiewicz from Poland and American Jonathan West. Also still alive... Maria Lampropulos, Koray Aldemir, Michael Farrow, Michael Stashin, Christian Banz, Adrian Mateos, Jack Sinclair, Jean Ateba, Lucas Blanco, Phillip Corion, Adalfer Morales Gamarra, Gleidibe Brito, Keith Nassetta, Richard Kirsch, Liv Boeree, Patryk Poterek, Christian Rudolph, Shawn Buchanan, Daniel Coupal, Marco Gagliano Alves, Uladzimir Anoshka, Calum Deas, Bryan Ponce Zerna, Ivan Zhechev, Aleksandr Milyaev, Sharman Olshan, Helio Chreem, Florian Maurer, Oliver Weis, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Jason Stemmle, Tim Miles, Lachezar Petkov, Andriy Lyubovetskiy, Michael Kamran, Aaron Olshan, Gabriella Boza, and Maria Konnikova.

Notables who cashed in the Main Event on Day 3 included... Alex Gambino, Barry Greenstein, Lucas Greenwood, Tim Volf, Harrison Gimbel, Maximillian Gruenberger, Florian Buhler, Daniel Carlsson, Leo Margets, Kevin MacPhee, Victor Ramdin, Henry Strasser, Oleksandr Didukh, Brett Bader, Scott Wilson, Anthony Philips, Keith Lehr, Gavin O'Rourke, Dario Marinelli, and Darren Rabinowitz.

In other PCA news, Jason Koon shipped the $25K High Roller. This year's PCA had three various high roller events on the docket. Steve O'Dwyer mango-crushed the $50K earlier this week and over the weekend, Cary Katz took down the $100K Super High Roller. Jason Koon binked the $100K SHR at the 2017 PCA (er, sorry, at the 2017 PokerStars Championship Bahamas). Although Jason Koon failed to win the 100K in consecutive years, he managed to take down the $25K. Koon faded a field of 58 runners and won a little more than $420K in this single-day grueling affair. Koon defeated Mikalai Vaskaboinikau heads-up for the victory. Only the top 8 places paid out for the $25K. Among those cashing... Timothy Adams, Nick Petrangelo, Benjamin Pollak, Chris Hunichen, Christopher Kruk, and Ike Haxton.
