Jonathan Jaffe

The $25,000 3-Day High Roller at the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure drew a total of 142 entries from 99 unique players, but just eight remain in contention for the title and $836,350 top prize. Leading the way is Jonathan Jaffe, who will take a massive 2,143,000-chip stack out of the bag when Day 3 begins at noon local time at the ultra-luxe Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas.

Jaffe is the only player to carry a stack of over 2 million into the third day of play. Canadian online grinder Christopher Kruk sits in second position with 1,420,000, and just behind him is former Super Bowl champion Richard Seymour with 1,400,000.

PokerStars Team Pro Igor Kurganov is still in the hunt with a stack of 660,000, as are Felipe Ramos (633,000), Stefan Schillhabel (480,000), Justin Bonomo (361,000), and short stack Mikita Badziakouski (134,000).
