Isaac Haxton has won the $100,000 buy-in 7-handed high roller tournament at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure
Hosted at Baha Mar Resort in the Bahamas, the event attracted 46 entries.
Haxton took home the largest piece of the $4,508,460 prize pool, adding $1,555,360 to his career earnings, now at $35,563,165. This win marks Haxton's second victory at the PCA, as he won another $100,000 high roller event at the same venue just a few days earlier and his fourth cash of the year.
Haxton also won the $50,000 high roller at the PokerGO Cup a few weeks ago, putting him in fifth place in the Card Player Player of the Year race with 2,178 points. The victory also pushed him up to 14th place on the all-time money list, leapfrogging his friend and fourth-place finisher Steve O’Dwyer.
Twelve players returned for Day 2, and the field more than doubled when registration remained open. Notable players that busted before the money and final table bubble included Stephen Chidwick, Justin Bonomo, Bryn Kenney, Cary Katz, Seth Davies, and Adrian Mateos, who was eliminated by Haxton when his A-K was beaten by Haxton’s 10-3 that turned a wheel.
David Peters was the first player to be eliminated at the final table, followed quickly by Nick Petrangelo, O’Dwyer, and Aleksejs Ponakovs, who took the final table down to a heads-up final with Haxton holding a lead of just over a million against Fedor Holz's stack. Holz became the runner-up, taking home a prize of $1,014,400, while Haxton secured his third tournament title of the year at his fourth final table.
