In a gigantic field of 1,560 runners, only 173 players managed to survive going into Day 3 of the 2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Main Event at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. And in this region, where there’s a mad search for the next Asian poker superstar, it’s considered big news when Asian players do well in major international events.

After Day 2 of the PCA Main Event, there are three Asians – Yves Sy from the Philippines, Masa Kagawa from Japan and Georges Yazbeck from Lebanon – left in contention for the much-coveted PCA title. The main event, with a buy-in of USD $10,300, will have a total of 232 players place in the money after the USD $15,132,000 prize pool was set. This means that Sy, Kagawa and Yazbeck will earn at least USD $17,500 for their efforts.

When Day 3 starts, Sy will have 314,000 chips good for 56th place overall, Kagawa with 247,000 at 80th and Yazbeck with 3,000 chips at 173rd.

Adam Geyer from the United States is the current chip leader with 909,000 followed by Ilan Rouah from France with 795,000 and Chris Oliver from the United States with 792,500. Harry Kaczka (USA), Chris Moneymaker (USA), Eric Buchman (USA), Oleg Perepletchikov (RUS), David Sands (USA), Josh Bergman (USA) and Bahbak Oboodi (USA) complete the top ten.
