Gruissem Enters Day 2 as Leader

Day 2 of the tenth anniversary PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller is on the horizon, and your chip leader is German Philipp Gruissem (771,500). Gruissem - who is no stranger to high rollers, winning two in 2011 and earning more than $1 million in the process - was actually forced to re-enter the event after being eliminated by Antonio Esfandiari.

Upon returning, Gruissem tripled the 250,000-chip starting stack, with thanks to a big hand against Phil Hellmuth. Hellmuth, who only lasted about a half hour (and ten hands, according to Jason Somerville's Facebook page), led out on a board of {j-Spades}{2-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Spades}. Gruissem moved all in, and Hellmuth made the call. Gruissem tabled {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a full house, and Hellmuth showed the {9-Spades} before exiting.

Hellmuth did not re-enter at the time, but has until the start of play today to do so.

Other players who did re-enter include Isaac Haxton, Daniel Negreanu, Tom Dwan, Cary Katz, Paul Newey, Fabian Quoss, Igor Kurganov, Tobias Reinkemeier, and Bryn Kenney.

Kurganov, Newey, and Kenney all busted a second time, while Haxton will begin Day 2 with roughly ten big blinds.

There are plenty of Team PokerStars Pros still in the hunt for the assumed multi-million dollar payday. Eugene Katchalov (514,500), Jason Mercier (502,500), Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier (388,600), Vanessa Selbst (382,000), and Jonathan Duhamel (314,000) will all start Day 2 with over 300,000 chips, while Negreanu will begin the day with 238,000.

If there are three more entries, then this will become the richest $100,000 Super High Roller event ev ner, surpassing the 2012 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final SHR, which generated a prize pool of €4,432,500 (roughly $5,790,840).

The cards will be in the air at approximately noon EST. See you then!
