Vanessa-SelbstVanessa Selbst

Historic double possible in the $25k PokerStars Caribbean Adventure High Roller as Vanessa Selbst leads.

A historic double could be on the cards in the $25,000 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure High Roller as defending champ Vanessa Selbst, who is using some smart strategies, leads with just 14 players left. Selbst finished third in the PCA $100,000 Super High Roller last week and is well placed for another big score when play resumes. She’ll be back with 1,633,000, just ahead of Portugal’s Joao Vieira (1,604,000) and Brazil’s Myro Garcia (1,181,000).

In the world of online versus live poker, mobile casino gambling sites are taking a huge slice of the action but the live match is heating up and is well worth watching! A total of 247 entries means a record-breaking prize pool of $6,051,500 with $1,279,900 on offer to the eventual winner.

Other contenders

This being a High Roller, the chances are that there’ll be a player from Germany there or thereabouts when the big money is being doled out. The sole remaining German is Marvin Rettenmaier who will return in sixth place on 1,014,000 when the action resumes at noon local time (5pm GMT).
