In an hour time, Day 3 of the PokerStars Championship Bahamas kicks off. 125 players of the field of 738 remain, all of them in the money and guaranteed $7,260 at this time. The first jump in payouts is at 103, rewarding $9,120.
But while that's all nice, all of the remaining players are gunning for the final table and that first place payout of $480,012. It may be smaller than last year because of the new payout distribution, but it's still a massive sum of money for anyone.
Play will resume at noon with blinds at 2,000/4,000 with a 500 ante. Leading the field is no other than Nick Maimone who won the $25,000 event here last year. Daniel Colman, who already made over a million here at The Bahamas with a 3rd place finish in the $50,000 Single-Day High Roller for $341,240 and a 4th place finish in the $100,000 Super High Roller for $759,660, sits in second place.
PokerNews will be on the ground from start to finish with live updates, photos, and the live stream of the feature table embedded.
