PSPC: Farid Jattin leads Day 2; Indian challenge ends


It was always going to be a tough time for everyone playing in the 2019 PSPC Bahamas tournament, given the fact that hundreds of the world’s best players were a part of the field. Yesterday, it officially became the world’s largest $25k buy-in poker tournament, with 1,000+ entries joining the tournament.

On Day 2, registration was on for a while and this number ended at 1,039 entries, which a humongous prize pool of $26,455,500 being recorded. Colombia’s Farid Jattin ended as the chip leader after Day 2, leading the final 207 players with a towering stack of 921,000 chips bagged at the end of day’s play.

Through the day, we saw a number of pros exiting the tournament, including Dominik Nitsche, Michael Soyza, 2018 WSOP ME winner John Cynn, Nick Petrangelo, Maria Lampropulos, SHRB 5 winner Isaac Haxton, partypoker Online MILLIONS winner Pim De Goede, Phil Hellmuth, Chris Moorman, 2018 GPI POY Alex Foxen, Jason Mercier, Brian Rast, Patrik Antonius, Joe Cada, Stephen Chidwick, Justin Bonomo, Lester Edoc, Chris Moneymaker, Martin Jacobson, and others.

India went into the tournament with high hopes, with eight winning $30,000 Platinum Passes each from PokerStars. However, unfortunately, all of them were out of contention by the end of Day 2. Raman GujralSaurabh SindhwaniAditya AgarwalSharad RaoVivek SinghAneesh Nair, and Nikhil Segel all enjoyed good runs but couldn’t make it to Day 3 of this prestigious tournament.

The competition will go on for the rest in the mix, and there are quite a few known names vying for that massive and life-changing top prize of $5,100,000. Among them are 2018 Aussie Millions ME winner Toby Lewis (124k), Mikita Badziakouski (156k), Darren Elias (411k), Dan Shak (451k), Christoph Vogelsang (483k), and Day 1 chip leader Talal Shakerchi (691k).

The current chip leader Jattin has live cashes of $2.9 million in his career so far and a finish in the top 13 or higher would guarantee him a new career-best score, passing his previous of $243k. Behind him is the very well-known and talented Italian pro Mustapha Kanit, who has over $11.3 million in live cashes and currently has a stack of 888k chips.

Tomorrow on Day 3, the money bubble will soon be approached, with 181 spots guaranteed a pay-out of a minimum of $25,450 each. GutshotMagazine.com will continue to follow the 2019 PSPC Bahamas, so stay tuned for latest updates.
