The most-expensive tournament of the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) will kick off at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island and the PCA Super High Roller comes with a price tag of $100,000. Some of the biggest names of the international poker circuit are expected to join the action and Day 1 is scheduled to kick off at 12.30 p.m. local time.
A quick glance at the list of previous winners reveals the who-is-who of poker with the likes of Eugene Katchalov, Viktor Blom, Scott Seiver, Fabian Quoss, Steve O'Dwyer, Bryn Kenney, Jason Koon, and Cary Katz all emerging victorious. Katz defeated a 48-entry strong field to claim a payday of $1,492,340, his third-biggest single cash to date.

Three High Roller Events have already taken place during the 2019 PCA; but only one of them has determined a winner just yet. In the early morning hours, Rainer Kempe overcame a tough final table and beat Alex Foxen heads-up to take down the $50,000 Single-Day High Roller while Sean Winter and David Peters are yet to finish their heads-up match in the $25,000 Single-Day High Roller I. Last but not least, the record-breaking $25,000 PokerStars NL Hold'em Players Championship is set to crown six millionaires as of 1 p.m. local time.
It would certainly be no surprise to see Foxen, Kempe, Winter or Peters in the $100,000 Super High Roller, too, along with a host of superstars. Sam Greenwood and Dan Shak will enter the event on a bargain as they won their seat in a $10,000 Satellite last night. Thanks to 32 entries in total, two seats were generated and Bartlomiej Machon finished third for $91,000.
Day 1 is set to play eight levels of 60 minutes each with a break every two levels. Unlimited re-entries are available throughout the day and late registration remains open until the cards go back in the air for Day 2. The PokerNews team will be on the floor to bring you all the action until a new Super High Roller champion is crowned.
