We are back with the final episode of the coverage released by PokerStars.tv for the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Super High Roller event that was held back in January, with the action now seeing the final table of seven play down until a winner.
The final table began with Dan Shak holding the chip lead with a chip count of 3,700,000 but there were big names to be seen everywhere, each more than capable of turning their chip stacks into the winning ones. He had the likes of PokerStars Team Pro Vanessa Selbst just slightly behind him, Antonio Esfandiari a little less than a million further back and even one of the most in form players on the planet in Ole Schemion holding the short stack.
In fact, if you were to add up all of the career earnings on this final table, there is easily more than $50 million earned between them prior to this event. Esfandiari alone has more than $20 million and Selbst has $10 million.
Chip Counts At Start Of Final Table
1st) Dan Shak – 3,700,000

Any $100k buy-in event is going to create a good sized prize pool and that was certainly the case here with there being a prize pool of 5,433,120 to be shared among the top eight. Mike McDonald was the player that fell in 8th place on Day 1 to take the final remaining payout of $217,320. The rest now had to fight it out for the rest of those paying positions.
