It's another beautiful day at the Baha Mar in The Bahamas, and the 2023 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) continues today with Day 2 of the $25,000 8-Handed at 2 p.m. ET.

This event saw the largest high roller field thus far, with a total of 78 runners and with 52 remaining after ten levels of play yesterday.

Leading this star-studded event is Brian Kim, who bagged a total of 631,000, which equates to 158 big blinds, followed by Chris Hunichen with 565,000 (141 big blinds).

Play resumes today on Level 11 with blinds of 2,000/4,000/4,000. Late registration remains open until the completion of Level 12, so this already large field is expected to grow even more during that time. As this is a two-day event, play will continue until a winner is awarded the coveted spade and the hefty payout.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be on-site to provide live updates on the latest high roller as well as other events in the 2023 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA).

Double Trouble with Queen-High

Nível 11 : Blinds 2,000/4,000, 4,000 ante

With 28,000 already in the middle, Sam Grafton and Mike Watson were heads-up on a flop of {a-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Grafton then check-called a bet of 9,000 from Watson and the two went to a turn {4-Hearts}.

The action then proceeded to check through to the {k-Diamonds} river, which was also checked.

Grafton flipped over {q-Spades}{8-Spades} for queen-high and Watson also turned over {q-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} for queen-high. The two pros shared some friendly jabs as they split the pot after the intense check-down.

Aido Doubles Through Chidwick

Sergio Aido
Sergio Aido

Stephen Chidwick opened to 9,000 in middle position and Chad Eveslage called on the button, while Sergio Aido came along from the big blind.

All three players checked on the {5-Hearts}{j-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop and Aido led out on the {k-Hearts} turn. Chidwick raised to 48,000 and Eveslage folded before Aido three-bet jammed for 134,000. Chidwick called with a bigger stack.

Sergio Aido: {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Stephen Chidwick: {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

Aido wasn't going anywhere with his queen-high flush and Chidwick couldn't get there with the nut flush blocker as the {a-Clubs} peeled off on the river to earn the Spaniard the double.

Cowboy Dan Doubles Up

Nível 11 : Blinds 2,000/4,000, 4,000 ante
Dan Smith
Dan Smith

On a flop of {2-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{9-Clubs}, Dan Smith had made it 27,000 to go when Orpen Kisacikoglu re-raised to 100,000. After a few seconds, Smith moved all in for a total of 67,000 and Kisacikoglu quickly called to put Smith at risk.

Dan Smith: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Orpen Kisacikoglu: {q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

Smith was well in the lead with his flopped set of nines but still needed to dodge Kisacikoglu's flush draw. The turn {8-Hearts} was safe for Smith and the {4-Diamonds} river improved his hand to nines full of fours, and he was pushed the substantial pot for a nice double up.
