High rolling in the bourgeois Bahamas. It really doesn't get any better than the PCA. Sun. Sand. Tropical paradise. $25 burgers.
The PCA Super High Roller event in the Bahamas had a slight downtick from last year's record-setting field at the Atlantis Resort. However, 44 unique players bought into the $100,000 SHR event and they also added 14 additional entries for a total of 58 entries and a prize pool worth $5,626,000. Only the top 8 places paid out with $1,687,800 set aside for the SHR champion.
Action ended late on Day 2 with only six players remaining. American Bryn Kenney ended the night as the chipleader and a big stack worth 3.8M. My favorite European pro Mustapha Kanit from Italy is the short stack with 1.03M.
Also still alive is 2015 WSOP Main Event Champion Joe McKeehen, who is third overall in chips.
