The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) 2011, the latest poker event in Bahamas, has finally come to an end, with Galen Hall, the talented American poker player, emerging as the victor. This year, the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure attracted 1,560 players fighting for a colossal pot comprising $15,132,000. A breathtaking sum of $2.3 million of this prize pool goes to plump the bankroll of the champion of the event, who happens to be Galen Hall this year.
Galen Hall, who is widely acclaimed for his online poker achievements, defeated prominent poker pros to emerge victorious. He even defeated Chris Oliver, who won the title of Chip Leader during the grand finale of the Heads Up Event. Although Oliver was the chip leader, Hall managed to emerge victorious, grab the coveted title, and win the largest amount of cash he had ever won throughout his poker career.
Chris Oliver, however, gets $1.8 million as the second prize. Anton Ionel, the Romanian poker pro who finished third, grabbed $1,350,000 of the prize pool. Both Oliver and Ionel were the dominant players of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure final table. The other players fighting for the championship were Phillippe Plouffe, Max Weinberg, Mike Sowers, Bolivar Palacios, and Sam Stein. Six French professional poker players came into some cash during this event, with Ilan Rouah finishing 36th, Erika Cerastes finishing 42nd, Alexis Fourcade finishing 65th, Bertrand Grospellier finishing 126th, Loic Blarez finishing 135th, and Frederic Edelmann finishing 220th.
The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is an annual poker event, which is broadcast live on television, much to the delight of poker fans from all over the world. The first PCA was held in 2004 on a luxury liner called Royal Caribbean Voyager, after which it is commonly held at the Atlantis Casino and Resort, which is located on the Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
As poker enthusiasts worldwide already know, PCA 2011 began on Jan 4, 2011 and featured more than 50 lucrative poker events spread out over a period of 10 days. The Main Event alone carried a prize pool worth $20 million. Although interested players are free to buy-in to the PCA Main Event for $10,300, those who cannot afford that type of money can win a free seat to the event by participating in and winning a number of qualifying satellites run at PokerStars. The final table of the PCA Main Event was broadcast on ESPN2.
