Jacks Are Good for Dvoress

• Level 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Action folded to Mikita Badziakouski in the hijack and he raised to 2,500. Daniel Dvoress called from the big blind.

The flop came {A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Dvoress check-called a bet of 2,000 from Badziakouski.

The turn brought the {7-Diamonds} and both players checked.

The {6-Hearts} fell on the river, Dvoress bet 2,000, Badziakouski called, and Dvoress tabled {J-Hearts}{J-Clubs}. Badziakouski mucked and the dealer pushed the pot to Dvoress.

Kornuth Fills Up to Eliminate Seidel

Erik Seidel raised to 3,500 on the button and Chance Kornuth three-bet to 10,000 from the big blind. Seidel called and the flop came {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{5-Hearts}.

Kornuth led out for 8,000 and Seidel called to see the {9-Hearts} fall on the turn. Kornuth fired another 18,000 and Seidel still called.

The river brought the {q-Hearts} and Kornuth used a time bank before finally announcing all in. Seidel, who had the smaller of the two stacks, instantly tossed in a call. Kornuth turned over {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} for a full house and Seidel just mucked his cards before exiting the tournament area.

One Day, $25K, PCA 2018; Chips Fly at Noon

[user270022]

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2018 rolls on this afternoon with the $25,000 Single-Day High Roller, the 18th event of the annual festival at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

This is the third High Roller of the festival after Cary Katz won the $100,000 Super High Roller and Steve O’Dwyer captured the $50,000 High Roller. Once again, the wealthiest players unfortunate enough to no longer be in the running of the Main Event will converge for a one-day battle on the felt.

At the 2017 PokerStars Championship Bahamas Bryn Kenney captured yet another title after topping a field of 42 runners that included 17 re-entries. Just seven players made the money including Sean Winter, Mike Watson, Bill Perkins, Oleksii Khoroshenin, and Anton Astapau. Kenney would end up defeating Dario Sammartino heads-up to claim the $392,876 top prize.

Kenney is no longer in the Main Event so chances are he will make an appearance during the day. PokerStars pros Daniel Negreanu and Jeff Gross are also free and the two previous High Roller champs, Katz and O’Dwyer, can attempt to go for a second title this festival.

Once the action kicks off at noon local time, play will continue until a champion is crowned. Players start with 100,000 in chips and Levels will last 30 minutes. There is also a 30-second shot clock governing the event though players are given timebank chips for those uncomfortable spots. One re-entry is permitted per player.

PokerNews will be here throughout the festival, bringing you all the news and live updates. Follow @pokernews on Twitter for updates and more. Also, follow PokerNews on Facebook and Instagram.
