The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event as well as the Super High Roller might be be grabbing the big news headlines, but the quite tenacious list of other events at the Atlantis are giving rise some vast pay-days and especially for 2 WSOP Main Event winners.
Main Event champion of 2009, Joe Cada, picked up the largest score of his poker career beyond the Main Event by grabbing the $ 2000 No Limit Hold’em side event, a championship which attract a huge field of 348 poker players and presented Cada $ 175550 for 1st place. Cada was fell in at the final table by Mike Telker, who grabbed 2nd position, 4th place Shannon Shorr and 6th position finisher J. C. Alvarado.
Joe was not the alone Main Event champion to pass some period in the winner’s band either. The WSOP 2010 winner Jonathan Duhamel extended his PCA spicy run by going through his 4th position finish in the $ 100000 Super High Roller along with a gain in the $ 5000 No Limit Hold’em side event. Duhamel found out an added $ 239830 to go with the $ 313600 he gained in the $ 100000 event. Though, in a final table show in the $ 5000 Turbo championship and Duhamel’s 2012 PCA bounty is at $ 571420 at present.
$ 5000 final table of Duhamel may have been only as elusive as the Super High Roller final 8, as the French Canadian poker pro was got together by Jason Mercier, the WSOP bracelet achiever Stammen, reigning WSOP Main Event Champion Heinz, who grabbed 5th position and Owen Crowe. Since gaining the Main Event a over one year ago, Duhamel has received an added $ 1.1 million in profits and it is the most of a Main Event champion since Joe Hachem in the year 2005.
