Day 3 of the $25,000 High Roller Event at the 2010 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure wrapped up Wednesday night as the final table was reached. Tobias Reinkemeier landed on top of the leaderboard when the night came to end, bagging up 1,072,000 chips.
Reinkemeier was able to pick up in the last hand of the night to eliminate Team PokerStars Pro Sandra Naujoks. Reinkemeier raised the action to 45,000 with blinds of 10,000 to 20,000 and a 2,000 ante. Action folded to Naujoks and she moved all-in for 267,000. When action got back to Reinkemeier, he made the quick call. When the cards were turned over, Naujoks revealed she held and only one overcard to Reinkemeier's jacks. After the board ran out , Naujoks was eliminated in ninth place, earning $56,595.
The day began with 24 players vying for the title and saw many notable names fall short. Brett Richey, Nick Schulman and Vivek Rajkumar were some of those who failed to make the money, but the most important name to bust without cashing was Team PokerStars Pro Dario Minieri. Minieri began the day as the chip leader, but busted out on the bubble in 17th place.
A few of the notables to finish in the money but not move on to the final day include Alex Brenes (10th), Carter Phillips (12th) and Isaac Baron (14th). WSOP Main Event champions and Team PokerStars Pros Joe Cada (11th) and Greg Raymer (13th) also fell short of the final table.
One of the two women who played the event, Lisa Hamilton, made it to the final table. She is the reigning WSOP ladies champion. Also making the final table was Will Molson. He placed second in the very event last year to Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier.
