High Roller regular from Colombia, Farid Jattin finishes Day 2 as chip leader at the $25,000 PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Players Championship of the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
Quite new to international poker tables, Jattin already has close to $3million in live cash from commendable performances at the European Poker Tour and Latin American Poker Tour.
A Jaw-Dropping Tournament
It was a record-breaking, jaw-dropping Day 2 at the most anticipated event of the year. The field size reached 1,039 creating a prize pool to $26,455,500. Currently, 207 hopefuls are in contention.
Out of which, 181 spots will share the humongous prize pool and a trip to the beautiful Bahamas. Hold your breath before going bonkers because there’s something more that will make your heart skip a beat.
$5.1 million, yes, that’s what the winner will take home. Till the end of Day 2, the money spots were not reached throughout the eight 60-minute levels each. However, there’s no reason to expect some cash being pocketed as Day 3 action resumes.
Formidable players Mustapha Kanit (888,000), Griffin Benger (885,000), and Julien Martini (832,000) were right behind the chip leader at the end of the day.
Not all dreams came true
The NLH tournament Day 2 had no dearth of celebrated poker players from across the globe. However, not many made any farther than Day 2. Big names including that of Phil Hellmuth, 2017 female POY title holder Maria Lampropulos were seen falling off the charts.
Several pros representing the PokerStars brand also fell short of making their presence count. Aditya Agarwal, Fatima Moreira de Melo, Chris Moneymaker, Jake Cody, and Jason Somerville all pulled out before monetizing the opportunity.
Day 3 is on the clock
As Day 3 of $25,000 PokerStars NL Hold’em Players Championship kicks off with blinds of 4,000/8,000 and a big blind ante of 8,000, the money bubble is expected to burst sooner than later. Once the money has been reached, the 30-second clock will make its entry into the play.
