Day 2 Concludes with Defending Champion Selbst On Top
Day 2 of the big and bad $25,000 High Roller from the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure has come to a close. Leading the way is none other than Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst, the defending champion of this very event. Selbst bagged 1,633,000.
Just 14 players remain, and it is a packed group that's left. Selbst's lead is extremely small, as she's only 19,000 in chips ahead of Joao Vieira with 1,604,000 in second place. Also remaining are Daniel Negreanu, Ole Schemion, Dan Smith, Rob Mizrachi, and the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Greg Merson.
Also making it to Day 3 is Paul Newey, the investor and businessman that's recently taken the plunge into the poker world. Prior to this in-the-money finish, Newey had just one cash on record for $4,400 from last year's PCA. Well, he's back at the festival this year and already locked up a solid $89,560 in prize money. He'll be the short stack returning with 162,000 in chips, but anything can happen if he gets a double up or two on Monday.
Day 3 will see a winner crowned and one of these tough competitors become $1,279,880 richer. The cards will be back in the air at 12 p.m. local time on Monday, and you can find all of the live coverage from the tournament floor right here on PokerNews.com.
