Dia 1 Terminado
Dia 1 Terminado
On the final hand of the night, France's Jean-Noel Thorel busted Nick Petrangelo on the money bubble to end play and send the remaining six hopefuls into the money and on to Day 2. A total of 46 entries were tallied on Day 1 of the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $50,000 High Roller held at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island.
Leading the pack when they return on Tuesday for Day 2 is American pro, Byron Kaverman. Kaverman sat among the leaders for most of Day 1 and finished the night with 1,509,000, about 30% of the chips in play. In fact, the vast majority of chips left in play belong to Kaverman and second-best stack, Thorel, who mustered 1,120,000.
As expected, the final table is still stacked with talent with the likes of Steve O'Dwyer (783,000), 2017 WSOP Main Event finalist Benjamin Pollak (538,000), poker legend Erik Seidel (494,000), and the shortest stack Orpen Kisacikoglu (158,000).
Final Table Seat Draw:
|2||Erik Seidel||United States||494,000|
|5||Byron Kaverman||United States||1,509,000|
Kaverman took a stranglehold of the tournament just before the dinner break in a hand against Scott Seiver. The pot was pretty casual until Kaverman check-raised the river against Seiver, raising for more than pot. Seiver went deep into the tank needing six timebank cards before making the call. Kaverman turned over a gutshot straight he had spiked on the river and Seiver was forced to muck.
The players will return at 3 PM local time on Tuesday for the conclusion of the vent, played out on a cards-up live-stream with a 30-minute delay. Catch the action kicking off on the stream at 3:30 PM.
Here is what the players are fighting for:
Entrepreneur and Poker Player Cary Katz climbs back from 7 big blinds to beat out Daniel Negreanu, Issac Haxton, Bryn Kenney, Ivan Luca, Justin Bonomo, Sam Greenwood at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Super High Roller. This is not the first $100k buy in tournament win for Katz, but it is his first EPT win. Even after this $1.5 million win, the entrepreneur and creator of Poker Central still does not consider himself a professional poker player. To celebrate his big win, Katz rushes off to catch the College Football National Championship game hoping to root his Georgia Bulldogs to victory! Will Katz get two victories in one night?

Jean-Noel Thorel opened to 50,000 in the cutoff and Orpen Kisacikoglu called out of the small blind. Nick Petrangelo three-bet shoved for 187,000 and Thorel made the call. Kisacikoglu took a moment before tossing his cards into the muck.
The board ran out and Thorel's pair held to eliminate Petrangelo and end play on Day 1.
Byron Kaverman opened to 35,000 under-the-gun and called a three-bet jam of 103,000 from Adrian Mateos just one seat over.
Mateos needed his pair to hold to score the double up but Kaverman found a nine on the board to send the Spaniard packing.

After Byron Kaverman opened to 35,000 from under-the-gun, Scott Seiver three-bet jammed from middle position. Action folded to Steve O'Dwyer on the button who made the call forcing Kaverman to fold.
Seiver was in trouble and found no help from the board falling in ninth place.
The final nine players have departed on a one-hour dinner break. Here is how they stack up when play resumes:
