PokerStars Championship Bahamas: Petrangelo looks to secure High Roller win; Negreanu among final nine

January 14, 2017

What a wild 10 days it has been. And the 11th promises to be even wilder.

The inaugural PokerStars Championship Bahamas series comes to a close today, marked by the twin climaxes of the Main Event and $25K High Roller finales. In the latter we’ll be watching to see if Nick Petrangelo — chip leader at the end of both Day 1 and Day 2 — can pull off the trifecta and finish the most important of the three days on top.

Petrangelo has plenty of high rolling experience — including a couple of third-places in EPT high rollers in the not-so-distant past — but so do others among the final nine, with Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu among them.

And speaking of those with High Roller success — Bryn Kenney has already won two such tournaments in this series, and is the short stack but in the running to capture a third. Earlier in the series Kenney won the $50,000 Single-Day No-Limit Hold’em event, then followed that with another win in the $25K NL “Shot-Clockament.”

Here’s where everyone will be seated to start play today:

The final nine

That’s all who remain from a 159-entry starting field. The bubble burst immediately after dinner last night, then over the rest of the evening the field whittled down from 23 to the final nine. Here’s where the cashers ended up:
