Henrik Hecklen leads Day 1 PCA $100K Super High Roller

by Gutshot Editorial Posted on 11 Jan, 2019

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is in full force at the luxurious Atlantis Resort and Casino in the Caribbean island-country of Bahamas. Three events have already declared their champions in the PCA till now, the $25K Single-Day HR, the $50K Single-Day HR and the most hyped event of all, the PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC).

Yesterday saw yet another high-stakes event $100,000 Super High Roller conclude its Day 1. The day attracted a total of 56 entries (including 13 re-entries) and a total of eight levels of 60 minutes each were played on the day.

The event will see at least $5,433,120 in total prizes distributed, which is subject to increase as the registration will remain open till the start of Day 2 today on 12.30 pm Bahamas time. If there are any new entries, they’ll get 250,000 starting stack and will play at 3K/6K/6K (big blind ante) blinds.

A total of 33 players progressed to Day 2 out of the 43 unique players that signed-up. Henrik Hecklen emerged as the chip leader with 1,264,000 chips. He one of the two players to have crossed the 1 million chip mark, the other being PokerStars Team Pro Igor Kurganov with 1,050,000 chips.

Hecklen is quite an accomplished player hailing from Denmark. He recently shipped the €10,300 EPT High Roller for €503,700 in December 2018, last month. He made his career best live cash at this. He has played live all over Europe and has cashes at the WSOP in Las Vegas too. His total live earnings reach almost $2 million and if he wins this event, he will add a huge sum to this and will almost double his previous cashes.

Third in chip counts is Ireland’s Steve O’Dwyer with 889,000 chips. Sam Greenwood, one of the three Greenwood brothers who ran in the PSPC, rounds up top 4 in the $100K SHR with 792,000 chips.
