Ivan Luca Leads Seven Hopefuls Into 2018 PCA $100,000 Super High Roller Finale

The second day of this year’s PCA $100,000 Super High Roller was completed with just seven players left to contend for the title. Day 2 action kicked off with Scott Seiver leading a pack of 33 survivors. However, the player did not make it through the end after clashing into Argentina’s Ivan Luca.

Eliminating Seiver, Luca boosted his chip stack to eventually become the overnight chip leader. Here it is interesting to note that despite his young age, the Argentinian is his home country’s most profitable player with live tournament winnings of over $5.3 million.

Luca is leading seven of the world’s best poker pros, him included, into the final day of one of the most popular high roller tournaments to be taking place each year. He bagged and tagged 2.76 million chips last night to top the elite pack.

Play is set to resume at 3 pm Bahamas time at the host venue, the beautiful Atlantis Paradise Island Resort. Each of the seven remaining hopefuls is guaranteed at least $248,720 from the prize pool.

Here is a little more information about what could be expected from today’s finale of the $100,000 Super High Roller.

Poker Titans Clashing for the $100,000 Super High Roller Title

While Luca might be the chip leader after Day 2 of the prestigious tournament, he has Justin Bonomo hot on his heels. The latter scooped 2.695 million in chips last night to secure himself with a comfortable position for the start of Day 3.

Canada’s Daniel Negreanu, who tops the all-time money list with over $35.3 million in earnings, bagged the third largest chip stack last night. The player secured 2.415 million. Here it is important to note that he entered the tournament two times on Day 1. His first attempt was unsuccessful, but firing his second bullet, the player is now doing more than well.

The fourth biggest stack into Day 3 of the Super High Roller belongs to Bryn Kenney. His chips currently count 1.485 million. Kenney is a former PCA Super High Roller champion and is vying for his second title in the exciting tournament. He won the event back in 2016.

Isaac Haxton with 1.095 million, Cary Katz with 855,000, and Sam Greenwood with 695,000 are rounding out the final table of this year’s edition of the PCA Super High Roller. Each of the players is well-known for their accomplishments in different high roller tournaments, so they are certainly entering the final day of the tournament with an amount of confidence.

The 2018 PCA Super High Roller attracted a total of 48 entries, including 12 re-entries. The tournament’s field generated a prize pool of $4,737,600. The top seven positions are paid. Each of the seven finalists is guaranteed a min-cash of $248,720. The winner will receive $1,492,340 for his performance in the tournament.
