Welcome back to the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure! Today is Day 1 of the $25,000 High Roller event, and we expect to see a plethora of the world's best players fill the Imperial Ballroom here at the Atlantis to compete for the glory, the fame, and, of course, the cash money.
Will Molson won this event last year, taking home just over $1 million for his efforts, and it was the third straight year he reached heads-up play. The third straight year. In 2009, the Canadian pro finished runner-up to Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier. in 2010, Will Reynolds defeated Molson heads up. And last year, Molson finally got over the hump, defeating PokerStars Team Pro Leo Fernandez.
All-in-all, Molson has cashed for over $1.6 million in this event, and he will look to add to that total in the coming days. The road will be tough however - we expect to see very tough competitors, including Jonathan Duhamel, Daniel Negreanu, Joe Cada, Vanessa Selbst, Ty Reiman, Chino Rheem, Shannon Shorr, the aforementioned Grospellier, and plenty more.
The cards should be in the air at 1:00 PM. local time, so keep it locked right here for all of your up-to-the-minute updates!
