(pokernews.com)- Day 2 of the 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller saw 32 Day 1 survivors return to action, but they were joined by nine others who opted to take advantage of the late registration period. That brought the total field up to 58 entries, which created a $5,626,000 prize pool that was to be distributed to the final eight.
After 10 one-hour levels of play, just six remained with Bryn Kenney and his stack of 3.82 million leading the way. Others still in contention for the $1,687,800 first-place prize include Ankush Mandavia (3.36 million), 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Joe McKeehen (2.805 million), David Peters (2.085 million), Isaac Haxton (1.395 million), and Mustapha Kanit (1.03 million).
The day started with former champ Scott Seiver hitting the rail – the result of running queens into aces – and he soon had company on the rail in the form of Keith LehrOle SchemionAntonio EsfandiariErik Seidel, defending champ Steve O’Dwyer, start-of-the-day chip leader Talal Shakerchi, and Team PokerStars Pros Jason MercierDaniel Negreanu, and Vanessa Selbst.

Another player to fall was German wunderkind Fedor Holz, who fell in Level 10 (4,000/8,000/1,000). Back in December, the 2014 WCOOP champ outlasted 44 other entrants to win the $100,000 WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas for $1,589,219. This past weekend, he followed it up by winning the Triton Super High Roller $200,000 Cali Cup for $3,463,000. Holz was looking to make it three Super High Roller events in a roll, but that dream failed to come true.
“The dream died,” Holz said with a smile. “Not three in a row.”
Late in the night, with just nine players remaining, the money bubble was in effect. In Level 17 (20,000/40,000/5,000), McKeehen opened for 80,000 from under the gun and Nick Petrangelo three-bet jammed for roughly 900,000 from the cutoff. The button and blinds all folded, and McKeehen snap-called.
he last woman in the field, Kathy Lehne, was the next to go in eighth place, and then Kenney eliminated Daniel Dvoress in seventh place to claim the chip lead.
Day 3 will kick off at 1 p.m. local time on Friday, but updates won’t start until an hour later to coincide with the cards-up live stream
