2014 PCA Main Event Day 3: Silver On Course For Gold

Max Silver

Only 78 players remain in the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event and it is the United Kingdom’s Max Silver who has more chips than any of them. Silver bagged up an impressive 1,453,000 chips as Day 3 closed, placing him at the top of the chip counts and giving him a realistic chance of leaving the Bahamas as the tournament’s champion.

Silver constantly tormented his table mates with his aggressive style of play and, judging by one of Silver’s tweets early on Day 3, started to get under their skins.

Day 4, which kicks off at 17:00 UK time, sees Silver sit down at Table 8 where he will be kept company by fellow Brit Thomas Hall (531,000 chips) and Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst (911,000). Selbst and Silver have clashed on the big stage on a number of occasions and there could be fireworks if and when the two collide. When the two locked horns in the €3,200 No Limit Hold’em Shootout at the 2011 World Series of Poker Europe, Silver made quads to send Selbst the rail. On that occasion, as Selbst left the tournament area, she commented “What was I supposed to do? He was three-betting me every hand.” Expect more of the same today!

Hot on Silver’s heels, in terms of chips, is Roger Teska and his impressive 1,406,000 stack. Teska and Kyle Sorel (1,132,000) are the only players — other than Silver — to begin Day 4 with a seven-figure stack.

There are plenty of established pros heading back to the poker room this afternoon including Sam Greenwood (760,000), Antoine Saout (668,000), Ireland’s Jude Ainsworth (618,000), Isaac Baron (433,000), Matt Stout (433,000), Marc-Andre Ladouceur (416,000), Loni Harwood (394,000), Mike McDonald (355,000), Angel Guillen (322,000), Marcel Luske (320,000) and Liv Boeree (115,000) to name 10 – we could have listed at least twice that number.

Each of the returning players is guaranteed to take home at least $22,800 for their efforts so far, but by the time the curtain comes down on Day 4’s proceedings, that amount will increase to somewhere around the $50,000 mark as the plan is to reduce the field so only a few tables remain.
