Hellmuth and Antonius Fall as Players Chase $5.1million Top Prize in Bahamas

Day two of the $25k PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Players Championship has seen the field of over 1000 whittled down to a mere 207, with the top prize announced as a massive $5.1 million – the money bubble approaching when the players return today.

Leading the charge is Farid Jattin, edging out Mustapha Kanit and Griffin Benger at the top of the chip counts, although when the Colombian pro based out of Florida hit the PokerStars Twitter updates he was immediately pounced upon by Mike ‘Timex’ McDonald over a long-standing $70k unpaid debt!

Among those who bust out on day 2 were:

  • Patrik Antonius, Finland’s most famous poker export
  • Phil Hellmuth, the Poker Brat losing a race
  • Chris Moneymaker, the 2003 WSOP Main Event champ
  • Martin Jacobson, the 2014 WSOP main Event champ
  • Jennifer Harman, legendary cash game pro
  • Andrew Neeme, the popular vlogger who this week hit 100,000 subscribers
  • top TwitchTV streamers Jaime Staples and Jason Somerville
  • Highstakes beasts Justin Bonomo and Stephen Chidwick

Those still in with a shout at the $26,455,500 prizefund with $5.1million up top include:

  • Talal Shakerchi, the hedgefund billionaire,
  • Kristen Bicknell, the leading female player of recent years
  • Sam, Max and Luc Greenwood, the Canadian ‘first family’ of poker.
