We are now down to just 78 players in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event after the players that had managed to successfully progress to Day 3 had to again be chopped down in size and negotiate the tough money bubble.
Once the action had finished it was the consistent performer Max Silver that held the chip lead after bagging up a very impressive 1,453,000 chips.
Ended the day w 1.45m chips. Average is 400 78 players left. Might be chip leader? #PCAMain

He heads a top ten that also includes Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst, a player that has been in superb of late and actually finished in third place in the PCA Super High Roller a few days back. She will be looking to go one better this time around but still has plenty of work to do.

She is not the only Team PokerStars Pro to still be involved either as Angel Guillen, Marcel Luske and Liv Boeree will be joining her on Day 4. Other big names also progressing include Matt Stout, Loni Harwood, Mike McDonald and Chris Klodnicki.

The bubble period was also broken today with only the top 151 players doing enough to make it into the paying positions. Many players busted before the bubble whilst a good few actually made the money before busting out. The most notable eliminations today were that of Team PokerStars Pros Jason Mercier, George Danzer and Leo Margets. They will now look ahead to the High Roller that starts up tomorrow.
Busted. AJ<KK. Happy to have made the money, but very much hungry for deep runs, final tables, and most importantly titles. 2014 lets go
