It's time for a landmark day in the partypoker 2018 Caribbean Poker Party $5,300 Main Event as all of the players remaining in the event will be seated in the same room for the first time.
Out of 1,815 entries, 291 of them remain and most of these players will be paid, 223*** to be exact. That's the first major hurdle that will be leaped here on Day 3 at the Baha Mar as the bubble will most likely burst relatively early in the day.
While many will be eyeing that $10,300 min-cash, though, plenty of others will have their sights set much higher, thinking only of the $1.4 million earmarked for the winner. Jason Koon, Dzmitry Urbanovich, Sam Panzica, Paul Tedeschi, Daniel Strelitz and chip leader Senthuran Vijayaratnam all come in with huge stacks and will be looking to press their advantages further as the bubble nears.
The plan for Day 3, set for a noon restart, is to play 10 levels starting at 60,000/120,000/120,000. There will be a dinner break, presumably for 90 minutes, after the sixth of those levels. The last level scheduled to be played is 300,000/600,000/600,000.
