Phillip McAllister is the youngest member of the 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure final table at 22 years old. Although he hails from the UK, McAllister currently resides in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, where he focuses his time on playing online poker.
McAllister plays on PokerStars under the screen name "Grindation," and he boasts over $2 million in winnings. The largest chunk of those winnings came in the middle of 2014 when he finished fifth in the Spring Championship of Online Poker's $10,300 Main Event — the high edition — for $350,838. McAllister also has scores of $232,960, $154,010, and $117,096 from the online realm.
In the live poker arena, McAllister's accolades are far less. He has just shy of $180,000 in live earnings, but he's already set to just about double that with a guarantee of $153,920 by reaching this point in the PCA Main Event. McAllister's aggressive play has drawn him plenty of attention since he moved into the top 10 in chips on Day 2, and now we'll see if he can transition his online poker experience in order to book a huge win in a marquee live event.
With 3.04 million in chips, McAllister sits ahead of only Randy Kritzer amongst the final six, but he still has a fair amount of play in his stack with 38 big blinds.
