Blowout in the Bahamas. This year's PCA Main Event included 928 runners for the $5,300 buy-in championship event.
Brit Toby Lewis emerged as the Day 1A chipleader with 188K. It would end up being the highest stack in the overall Main Event compared to all the survivors from Day 1B. At the end of Day 1B, the big dog was Russia's Alexandr Komarov who bagged 168K, while American Jonathan Jaffe not far behind with 164K.
Both single flights combined on Day 2. At the end of the night, Brazi's Leo Pires led the way with 525K. Less than 200 players returned for Day 3. Steve O'Dwyer bought in late after winning the PCA Single-Day High Roller. He ran up his stack and ended the Day near the top of the leader board.
Also late on Day 2, Antonio Esfandiari tried to win a 50K prop bet so he urinated in a cup and got DQ'd from the Main Event. He subsequently won the lunge bet.
Several French players survived the cut on Day 2 including Albert Balayn (130K) Jean-Baptiste Desvignes (112K), Paul-Francois Tedeschi (85K), Benjamin Pollak (65K) and Michel PoMaret (53K).
Day 3 kicked off with approximately 195 players. The money bubble should burst in the middle of Day 3 with the top 135 places getting a piece of the pie.
