Exciting stuff for poker fans as day one of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is under way at The Atlantis in the Bahamas. Today is the first day for the PokerStars Players Championship, where established pros go up against online qualifiers.
One of those online qualifiers is Travis Nesbitt, an online pro from Saskatchewan, who won himself his Platinum Pass entry into this tournament — otherwise, he would have had to pay $25,000.
Also, there have been a lot of celebrities playing at this event including Paul Pierce, Sergio Garcia, Tony Hawk and Norm Macdonald — though I notice Macdonald is now out the door. Anyway, I am following the live streaming and the live updates. Updates are here. Also, there will be more tournaments at the PCA, including the Main Event starting Jan. 12, so the fun is definitely going to last a while in the Bahamas.
