Day 1 of the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller has come to a close. After eight one-hour levels of play, the field has been cut down to 37 with European Poker Tour London £50,000 Super High Roller champion Martin Finger leading the way. He bagged up an impressive 829,000 in chips, but there's still a long way to go before this one is all said and done.

On Day 1, there were 52 total entries generated from 45 unique players, but that number could see an increase as registration and reentry are both open until the start of play tomorrow. That is also when the prize pool and payout information will become available.

Only a couple names busted on Day 1 that opted not to reenter, but still have the option to do so. Those were reigning World Series of Poker Main Event champion Ryan Riess, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, John Juanda, Steven Silverman, and Mike Watson.

Daniel Negreanu busted, reentered, and then busted again, but he did mention that he would likely return for a third try on Day 2. Guy Laliberté also busted twice during Day 1, but reentered for the second time right at the end of Day 1 to continue his quest towards the finish line.

Some of the notables surviving Day 1 were Jason Mercier, Vanessa Selbst, Joseph Cheong, Matt Glantz, Philipp Gruissem, Isaac Haxton, Jason Koon, Max Altergott, and Ole Schemion. Defending champion Scott Seiver also remains, and he'll be aiming the achieve the outstanding back-to-back feat.

Day 2 will have the cards in the air at 12 p.m. local time tomorrow at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. You can be sure to catch all of the live updates right here on PokerNews, so stay tuned!

Bagging and Tagging

Nível 8 : 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Day 1 is officially done, and all of the remaining players are bagging and tagging their chips. A Day 1 recap will be posted shortly, followed by the official end-of-day chip counts once those are received from the staff.

Four More Hands

Nível 8 : 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

The tournament staff has just announced that each table will play four more hands before the advancing players bag and tag their chips.

Laliberté Crippled, Then Busted

Nível 8 : 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
Guy Laliberté
Guy Laliberté

Steve O'Dwyer raised to 13,500 from middle position, then Guy Laliberté reraised all in for about 95,000 from the hijack seat. Timothy Adams called all in for 85,000 out of the big blind, and O'Dwyer folded.

Laliberté tabled the {A-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, but was behind the {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} that Adams held.

The board ran out in favor of Adams when it came {J-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{3-Hearts}, and he earned the double up.

Laliberté was left with 9,000, and then had 8,500 after posting his ante for the next hand. He moved all in from middle position without looking, then Noah Schwartz raised behind him to 20,000 to isolate. Everyone folded, leaving Laliberté at risk with the {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} against Schwartz's {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}.

The board came {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, and Laliberté was eliminated.

Análise de Mãos

This hand provides an occasion to review a concept first introduced by David Sklansky to talk about the difference in strength between hands one raises with and hands one calls a raise with, namely, the "gap concept." Read more about how the hand reminds us of this idea at Learn.PokerNews in "Lessons from the 2014 PCA: Mind the Gap."

Haxton's Tiny Lead

Nível 8 : 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Scott Seiver came in for a raise, making it 12,500 to go in early position. Isaac Haxton defended his big blind, then check-called a bet of 26,000 on a flop of {2-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}. The turn was the {4-Hearts}, Haxton lead for a tiny bet of 16,000, and Seiver sighed while folding.
