Just a few hours into day 3 of the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure main event the money bubble burst, ensuring that the remaining 151 players would all cash for at least $17,600. Surely they all still had their eyes on the title and the more than $1.8 million first-place prize, however. At the end of the day only 72 players remained, with Max Silver holding the chip lead heading into day 4 with 1,453,000. Silver finished sixth in the EPT Prague main event less than a month ago for €160,200. The current Dublin, Ireland resident has roughly $1 million in prior live tournament earnings and is poised to add a lot more after this event is finished.

Roger TeskaRoger Teska will enter day 4 in second chip position with 1,406,000. Those chips will not be in action right away, however, as Teska will begin they day with a one-orbit penalty as a result of some vulgar gestures made by the apparently intoxicated Teska towards the EPT television crew.

There are plenty of notables remaining in the field, with the most well-chipped being recent PCA super high roller third-place finsher Vanessa Selbst (911,000), Antoine Saout (668,000), Jude Ainsworth (618,000), Matt Berkey (607,000), Vladmir Schemelev (578,000), Matt Stout (433,000), Isaac Baron (433,000), Loni Harwood (394,000) and Mike McDonald (355,000).

Play began on day 3 with 215 players remaining, but only 151 were fated to make the money. Some of those who busted out short of a payday in this event include Taylor Paur, Joe Cassidy and Amanda Musemeci.

Andreas KynsveenAndreas Kynsveen was the unfortunate bubble boy, busting during a relatively short period of hand-for-hand play. Zo Karim had opened to 6,500 and Kynsveen called as the next player to act. Grzegorz Derkowski called from the big blind and the flop was dealt, bringing the AClub Suit8Club Suit8Diamond Suit. Derkowski and Karim both checked, prompting a 5,000 bet from Kynsveen. It folded over to Karim, who raised to 13,500. Kynsveen moved all in for approximately 70,000 total and Karim snap-called with the AHeart Suit8Heart Suit for a flopped full house. Kynsveen’s ADiamond SuitKSpade Suit was left drawing dead for the whole pot after the turn brought the QSpade Suit, and the JSpade Suit sealed the deal.

Notable eliminations after the money was made include Jared Hamby (150th – $17,600), Ole Schemion (144th – $17,600), Jason Mercier (142nd – $18,200), Antonio Esfandiari (140th – $18,200), David Baker ( 130th – $18,200), 2010 PCA champion John Dibella (106th – $20,300), 2012 WSOP Main Event champion Greg Merson (98th – $20,300) and Maria Ho (85th – $22,800).

Also worth noting is the fact that the three Greenwood brothers; Sam, Max and Luc all made the money in this event. Luc finished 91st for $22,800 and Max finished 78th, also for $22,800. Sam will enter day 4 with 760,000 in chips, putting him in 11th chip position.
