$25,000 High Roller

Jaffe Leads Into Day 2; Selbst Still Alive in Title Defense

Vanessa Selbst

Welcome back for Day 2 of the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $25,000 High Roller taking place at the beautiful Atlantis Resort here on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Heading into the second day of play, Jonathan Jaffe tops the field with 422,000 in chips.

Behind Jaffe sits Ole Schemion (347,700), Daniel Negreanu (344,500), Philipp Gruissem (290,300), and Mustapha Kanit (277,600) to round out the top five, but many eyes will be solely fixed on the defending champion Vanessa Selbst. She will enter the day with 185,700 in chips, which is good enough for 25th overall.

Selbst is riding somewhat of a high here at the 2014 PCA. First, she took third in the $100,000 Super High Roller for $760,640 to kick off her series, and then she finished in 42nd place in the $10,000 Main Event for $32,000. With more players in this event this year than last, shattering the record that was set, it would be an amazing feat if Selbst was able to reach the final table once again.

Other notables remaining are Jason Mercier, Jonathan Duhamel, Jeremy Ausmus, Greg Merson, Matt Glantz, and Shannon Shorr.

Play will kick off at 12 p.m. local time, and you can stick right here on PokerNews all day long for the live updates straight from the tournament floor as we march on to the final table.
