Juan Etcheverry Leads the Pack Heading Into Day 4 of the PCA Main Event

Posted at 20:00 2015-01-12 by thehazyone

The 175 players that returned to the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event started the day looking to accomplish one goal before moving on to bigger dreams.

PCA Main Event Day 3

That goal was making the money and in order to do so they would have to be one of the last 119 standing. They would make the money early in the evening and it would be Juan Etcheverry who ended the day with the chip lead with 1,704,000.

Survivor

Etcheverry's key hand came late in the day when he doubled through Mario Puccini with the nut flush. Rounding out the top five are Chance Kornuth (1,165,000), Kevin Schulz (1,165,000), Juan Martin Pastor (930,000), and Jim Collopy (889,000). Notables that advanced to Day 4 include Rami Boukai (625,000), Pratyush Buddiga (589,000), Naoya Kihara (509,000), JC Alvarado (490,000), Jason Mercier (447,000), Jonathan Duhamel (266,000), Ole Schemion (147,000), and Shannon Shorr (135,000). One player who advanced was world-famous football star Ronaldo who ended the day with 512,000 in chips.

Eliminations

Daniel Negreanu would enter the day with a big stack but could never get anything going and would be eliminated in the money by Pratyush Buddiga when his jacks were dominated by Buddiga's queens. There were plenty others joining Negreanu in coming up just short of achieving their PCA dreams including Pokerstars Team Pro's Leo Margets, Bertrand Grospellier, Andre Akkari, and Liv Boeree. Others to get eliminated were Martin Finger, Jared Jaffee, Will Failla, Marc-Andre Ladouceur, Mickey Petersen, Nenad Medic, Stephen Chidwick, Rep Porter, Alex Millar, and John Hennigan, George Lind, Dani Stern, Shawn Buchanan, Joe Ebanks, and Mike Leah.
