Poker Pro Tony Gregg Third Time to Make PCA Final Table
The 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, a widely popular poker tournament, started it had 928 players, creating a prize pool of $4,500,800. That number dwindled down to 19 players by Day 5 of the tournament, and by the end of this day, there would only be six players left. Thirteen players were knocked out during the day, leaving these six players on the final table of the Main Event.
Throughout Day 5 popular players were eliminated, including Taylor Paur (19th – $32,360), Fedor Holz (18th – $32,360), Matt Waxman (10th – $51,260), Timothy Ulmer (8th – $78,540), and Ken Demalkian (7th – $110,220). With these pros out of the way, the final six will have an even tougher challenge trying to take the $833,260 first place prize.
As a big surprise, or not, is the fact that Tony Gregg has made his way to the final table of the PCA Main Event for the third time, being unable to take that first place prize, but this year he could do it. His most notable tournament was when he won the $111,111 No Limit Hold’em – One Drop High Roller event at the 2013 WSOP, earning a whopping $4,830,619; which is a little less than half of what he has made during his career. He is still a young player, starting in 2008, but truly making his mark since 2011.
The final day for the 2016 PCA tournament will start at 1 p.m. local time, and will take as long as needed for these poker pros to play aggressively enough to knock out the other five and take the first place title as their own, not to mention the cash prize.
