With 59 players remaining in the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, the chip leader is Patrick Kelly, who bagged 1.75 million chips at the end of the night with thanks to two major hands involving pocket aces. In the first, he cracked Fabian Quoss’ aces with two queens, and in the second, his aces held against Michael Malm’s pocket kings in a seven-figure pot.

Joining Kelly at the top of the counts are Joe Serock, Darren Elias,

Day 3 of the 2013 PCA Main Event started with 166 players, an no one had a faster start than Serock. On one of the first hands played, he saw a flop of {10-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Hearts} with Jeremy Kottler. In it, Kottler checked, Serock fired 24,000, and Kottler called. The turn produced the {2-Diamonds}, and Kottler check-called a 57,500-chip bet from Serock.

The river was the {10-Spades}, and Kottler checked a third time. Serock fired a third and final bullet worth 135,000, and Kottler called. Serock tabled {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}, Kottler folded, and Serock raked in the pot.

A few orbits later, Mor Ben David five-bet all in against Serock with two kings. Serock, the four-bettor, snapped it off with aces, and held.

Hand-for-hand play began with 146 players, and two hands later, the bubble burst at one of the secondary feature tables. Short stack Joao Santos open-shoved for his last 11,500 with the blinds at 2,000/4,000/500. Robert Mizrachi re-raised to 25,000 on Santos’ direct left, and Vegard Froshaug moved all in for 71,000 from the small blind. Mizrachi immediately called.

Mizrachi: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}
Froshaug: {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Santos: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}

The board ran out {k-Spades}{j-Spades}{j-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{k-Hearts}, and both Santos and Froshaug were eliminated.

Once the bubble burst, players began busting left and right. Dozens of notable players were able to eek into the money but go no further, including Will Molson, Tim Reilly, George Danzer, Dwyte Pilgrim, Matt Glantz, Lisa Hamilton, Joe Cada, Paul Volpe, Michael Mizrachi, Ashton Griffin, and Quoss.

Quoss’ elimination hand was especially brutal. He was all in and at risk for 120,000 holding {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}, which dominated Kelly’s {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. Kelly spiked a set on the {5-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{k-Clubs} flop, and held as the turn and river came {10-Diamonds}, {3-Diamonds} respectively.

Kelly’s hot streak continued when he won a seven-figure pot with {a-Spades}{a-Clubs} off of Malm who held {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. The aces held this time as the board ran out {q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, and the American was suddenly among the leaders.

Notables who survive the day include PokerStars Team Pros Eugene Katchalov and Jake Cody, PokerStars Team Online Member Tatiana Barausova, 2010 SCOOP Main Event champion Ryan Fair, PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final champion Mohsin Charania, 2001 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Carlos Mortensen, and two-time WSOP bracelet winners Greg Mueller and Scott Clements.

Day 4 of the 2013 PCA Main Event will begin on Friday at noon EST. The schedule says that play will resume until 24 players remain, but the schedule can certainly be adjusted.
