Almost 12 hours ago, the third day of action for the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure High Roller Event began. Returning to the felt were 24 players with the plan to make it down to the final table before concluding play.

Reach the final table we did, but not after multiple hours of nine-handed bubble play. That wasn't the only bubble broken on the day, as the money bubble burst with the elimination of Team PokerStars Pro Dario Minieri in 17th place.

Team PokerStars Pro Sandra Naujoks was the last to go for the day, when she shoved over the top of a Tobias Reinkemeier raise with {A-Spades} {9-Clubs}. Reinkemeier held jacks and they held up to eliminate Naujoks in ninth and set the final table. With the elimination, Reinkeimeier claimed a big chip lead and will be coming into tomorrow with 1.072 million chips.

Some of the notables bustouts on the day were Greg Raymer (13th) and Joe Cada (11th). Both hold a WSOP Main Event title and made excellent showings here.

Here's how the final table will look for tomorrow.

Seat 1: Adolfo Vaeza - 758,000
Seat 2: William Reynolds - 482,000
Seat 3: Michiel Brummelhuis - 394,000
Seat 4: Dmitry Stelmak - 150,000
Seat 5: Will Molson - 669,000
Seat 6: Tobias Reinkemeier - 1,072,000
Seat 7: Lisa Hamilton - 440,000
Seat 8: Matt Marafioti - 236,000

Play will resume tomorrow at 12:00 noon for the final table to be played out. The players will be on the television table on the stage and vying for the $576,240 first-place prize. We'll see you then!

Reynolds Will Not Die

The final table bubble is taking forever and yet, we have another double up to tell you about.

After Tobias Reinkemeier raised to 45,000, Williams Reynolds moved all in from the big blind for 234,000. Reinkemeier made the call.

Reinkemeier: {A-Clubs} {K-Hearts}
Reynolds: {8-Hearts} {8-Clubs}

The flop came down {5-Hearts} {3-Diamonds} {2-Clubs}, adding a straight draw for Reinkemeier. The turn card took away some outs when the {8-Diamonds} hit and then the river was the {10-Clubs}.

Reynolds doubled up about 500,000 and Reinkemeier dropped to 650,000.

Reynolds Stays Alive

Before this hand even started, William Reynolds was so short in the small blind that Michiel Brummelhuis said he'd call his shove without even looking if it came to that. Well, it came to that.

Action folded to Reynolds in the small blind and he shoved. Brummelhuis called blind. Reynolds was all in for 68,000 and held {A-Clubs} {3-Hearts}. Brummelhuis held {K-Spades} {4-Clubs}.

The board ran out {K-Hearts} {5-Hearts} {3-Diamonds} {2-Hearts} {3-Spades} and Reynolds stayed alive.

Hamilton Climbing

Tobias Reinkemeier made it 40,000 to go from the cutoff and Lisa Hamilton called on the button.

The flop ran out {5-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds} and Reinkemeier bet 56,000. Hamilton quietly announced all in, getting a quick fold from Reinkemeier.

Lisa now has 390,000 while Tobias slips to 710,000.
