Crunch time in the Bahamas for the partypoker 2018 Caribbean Poker Party. The $250,000 Super High Roller Championships is down to six players and the final table stream will resume at 1pm local time in the Bahamas. Steffen Sontheimer and David Peters are the two big stacks, while Ike Haxton, Sean Winter, Nick Petrangelo, and Mikita Badziakouski are still left in the hunt. First place pays approximately $3.7 million. Also, the $5,300 buy-in Main Event concluded Day 2B and only 123 players remain out of 1,815 entrants. Senthuran Vijayaratnam is the chip leader and Jason Koon is second overall.

Final Table for the $250,000 Super High Roller Championships in the Bahamas

Fun in the sun. Busting donks. Swimming with sharks. Sketchy deals in the back of taxi cabs. Waiting for an hour for that drink you ordered thrice. Semi-chilled Kaliks. Fruity umbrella drinks. The faint aroma of dank nugs. The jangling beats of a steel drum. A little bit of Marley melody. And you have one hell of a gambling beach fiesta.

The big action in the Caribbean is at Baha Mar, where partypoker is hosting its 2018 Caribbean Poker Party. We already finished off the $25K and $50K High Rollers. We're almost done with the $250,000 Super High Roller Championship, which has been thinned from 34 to 6. Germany's Steffen Sontheimer is the big stack.

The Main Event kicked off over the weekend and the second Day 2 flight is complete. The marquee event, the $5,300 buy-in Main Event, attracted 1,815 runners. Overlay alert! The $10 million guaranteed prize pool kicked in. The top three places walk away with seven figures at at least $1 million with the champions banking $1.5 million. A total of 223 places pay out.

Senthuran Vijayaratnam bagged up a monster stack worth over 29M. partypoker ambassador Jason Koon is second overall with a shade under 20M. Sam Panzica, Dimitiar Yosifov, and French pro Paul Tedeschi round out the top 5.

Also still alive are Fedor Holz, Eoghan O'Dea, Stevie Chidwick, Adrian Mateos, Cary Katz, Mike Sexton, Tony Spinella, Dan Strelitz, Marc MacDonnell, Adam Owen, Ivar Boovarsson, Chris Kruk, Jerry Wong, Ryan Reiss, Alex Foxen, Scott Baumstein, Mike LEah, Jordan Young, Tony Ruberto, Freddy Deeb, Paul Jackson, Chris Moorman, Romain Lewis, Joe Cheong, Markus Prinz, Kevin Eyster, Brian Hastings, Koray Aldemir, Matt Stout, and Sam Chartier.

$250,000 Super High Roller Championships - Final Table

With the Main Event heading into Day 3, the $250K SHR is playing its third day. Only six remain out of 34 total entrants. Four spots get paid. Who wants $2.7 million, bruh?

Mikita Badziakouski is one of the short stacks, but he's one of the hottest high ballas in the game right now. If anyone can turn things around quickly, it's the Badzman from Belarus.

Along with David Peters, we're talking about two players playing at the peak of the poker powers. Perhaps we'll get a Badzman and DP finale? They'll have to figure out what to do with the token German at the final table. It's funny that you'd think there would be four Germans and a token American at the $250K SHR final table, but since this is the Bahamas, more Yanks took part in the fun in the sun. Hey, why not? It's hurricane season after all.

So, the $250K looks like it's going to come down to a token German and Badzman against four Americans, including alpha dog David Peters.

German pro Steffen Sontheimer bagged up the chip lead with over 11M. There's one other big stack and that's David Peters with 9M. Even if he was a shorty, I'd still be worried about DP. The other four are not as endowed. That quartet includes Mikita Badziakouski, Sean Winter, Ike Haxton, and Nick Petrangleo.

Sean Winter took second place in the $50K the other day for a $550K score.

Nick Petrangelo comes into the final table as the short stack with barely a million.

Only the top four places pay out, so two folks are gonna leave the Bahamas with a big fat donut. Then again, fourth place only pays out $700K. All the cheesecake is up top with nearly $3.7 million to first place and $2.4 million to second place.

The final six will resume action at 1pm PT local time. The final table will be streamed over at partypoker LIVE's coverage page. It's a free stream, but you need a login to view the action. Sweat the final table here.

Las Vegas Rumors: Rio Casino sold and imploded for baseball stadium or train station

If either of these rumors are true, then the 50th anniversary of the WSOP might be the last to be played out at the Rio Casino.
