Almost a week ago, 816 players took their shot in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, and on Day 6, that field has been whittled down to six competitors. Three Americans, a German, an Argentinian, and a Peruvian will take to the felt at 1 p.m. local time, with the live stream firing up shortly thereafter.
American pro Chance Kornuth will lead the way from Seat 2 when play begins with 7.86 million in chips. He'll have position on a fellow American in Seat 1, second-place Kevin Schulz with 6.155 million. Schulz hung around the middle and bottom tiers of the counts on Day 5 until scoring the last two eliminations of the day (pros Dylan Linde and then Pratyush Buddiga) to rocket up the counts. Peru's Diego Ventura is next, occupying Seat 4 with 3.98 million, followed by German Niklas Hambitzer in Seat 3 with 3.1 million. The last two spots will be home to Argentina's Juan Martin Pastor in Seat 6 with 2.655 million and short stack Rami Boukai of California with 780,000.
Play will resume with about half an hour left in Level 29 (40,000/80,000/10,000), and the tournament will progress with 90-minute levels until a winner is crowned, who will take home nearly $1.5 million. Stay tuned to find out who the next PCA champion will be.
