PCA 2023 Main Event: Abhinav, Sriharsha And Rajat Eliminated

It was a tough battle at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2023 at the Baha Mar Resort in Nassau, The Bahamas for the Indian contingent. Pros like Abhinav Iyer, Sriharsha Doddapaneni and Rajat Sharma were eliminated after qualifying from the Day 1B flight for the $10,300 Main Event (ME). 

Just yesterday we reported that Doddapaneni finished 9th at the $1100 BSOP Bahamas Main Event which meant that all eyes would be on how the Indian pros perform at the PCA 2023 ME. But all hopes came crashing down after all three pros were busted. Iyer exited at the 212 spot, Doddapaneni finished 231st and Sharma’s journey ended at 258th spot. 

Recap of PCA 2023 Day 1B

World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner, Iyer qualified via flight Day 1B at the 44th spot with 92,800 chips in his kitty. Doddapaneni had 77,600 chips (71st position) at his disposal to battle it out on Day 2. Sharma only had 15K chips in his hands (222nd spot) to survive ahead. Sadly for our Indian pros, the PCA 2023 ME did not turn into any kind of celebration, and a win overseas remains to be fulfilled.

At the end of Day 2, the PCA 2023 $10,300 ME has Bulgaria’s Alex Kulex as the chip lead. The event has 151 players surviving into Day 3. The prize pool stands at $8,623,300 which was generated thanks to the 889 entries who participated and the average stack at play is 176,623 chips. This entry pool broke the previous record of the 2019 edition of the series. The popular live poker series returned after a gap of three and has seen some massive interest and participation from the player fraternity.

Talking about the top 10 chips counts at the end of Day 2, we have Ehsan Amiri (518,000), defending champion Chino Rheem (428,500), Michael Rocco (408,000), and Chance Kornuth (380,000). It would be interesting to see if any of the top 10 contenders could turn the tables in their favour, especially the defending champ.
