Eugene Katchalov wins 2011 PCA Super High Roller
The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is the first major tournament series of the year and the first event in the new NAPT season. The PCA started with a huge bang, the super high roller event featuring an enormous $100,000 buyin. 37 players ponied up the 6 figure buyin, and the eventual winner … Eugene Katchalov who earned himself a cool $1,500,000. Eugene bested PokerStars pro Daniel Negreanu in a 6 hour epic heads-up duel to claim the top prize. It was a bitter sweet day for Kid Poker though, with his 2nd place and $1,000,000 prize money, he moved himself ahead of Phil Ivey to become #1 on the All Time poker tournament money list.
