Chance Kornuth Leads PCA Main Event With Six Left

Posted at 20:00 2015-01-14 by Brett Collson

Day 5 of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event commenced with the plan to play down from 24 to six players, and Chance Kornuth emerged as the leader after nearly 12 hours of play with 7.86 million.

The Florida native has put together a successful live poker career with more than $1.7 million in cashes and a World Series of Poker bracelet in 2010, but if he can finish the job here at PCA and claim the first prize of nearly $1.5 million, it would be the biggest score he's had by far.

Survivors

Joining Kornuth for the final day of the tournament will be Kevin Schulz (6.155 million), Diego Ventura (3.98 million), Niklas Hambitzer (3.1 million), Juan Martin Pastor (2.655 million), and Rami Boukai (780,000). Play stopped with the elimination of Pratyush Buddiga in seventh place with about half an hour left in Level 29 (40,000/80,000/10,000), which will leave everyone under 100 big blinds when play resumes on Wednesday for the conclusion of the tournament.

Eliminations

Others who found the rail during the course of Day 5 play included Tim Reilly (23rd), Noah Schwartz (22nd), Maurice Hawkins (16th), Scott Baumstein (15th), Ratharam Sivagnanam (13th), Day 4 leader Eugenio Mattar (12th), Benjamin Pollak (11th), and Shyam "sdot_111" Srinivasan (10th). The latter came heartbreakingly close to back-to-back PCA final tables.
