$10,300 PCA Main Event

Who Will be Crowned the 2019 PCA Main Event Champion?

Chino Rheem leads the final six

As of 1 p.m. local time, the remaining six players out of an 865-entry strong field will return to the feature table in the Imperial Ballroom at the Atlantis Resort & Casino to play down to a champion in the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) $10,300 Main Event. A new champion will be crowned on Paradise Island and the coveted PCA Main Event trophy and $1,567,100 top prize is up for grabs.

Leading the final six is David "Chino" Rheem, who was near the top of the leaderboard throughout the entire duration of the event and enters the final day with 7,550,000. Second in chips is Canadian online qualifier Scott Wellenbach with 6,015,000, who has pledged to donate his winnings to a charitable cause no matter where he finishes.

Brian Altman will enter the final day third in chips with 4,995,000, and the other finalists include Vicent Bosca (2,875,000), Daniel Strelitz (2,355,000) and Pavel Veksler (2,035,000). With 29 and 25 big blinds respectively for the bottom two stacks, there is still plenty of space to maneuver and it won't be an easy ride to victory in the first major poker tournament of the year.
