Hey look, Poland won something!

The first major event of 2014–the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure–is in the books.

Here’s a recap of the highlights in bulleted form:

  • The $10M guarantee Main Event actually did not have an overlay. That was not a given after Day 1A’s semi-dismal showing. The 1,031 total was up from 2013’s 987.
  • On that note, Poland’s Dominik Pańka won the event, besting Mike “Timex” McDonald and banking $1,423,096. Isaac Barron finished third. Vanessa Selbst, a woman who likes women, came in 42nd.
  • As previously covered, Fabian Quoss won the Super High-Roller for $1.6M. The event exceeded 2013’s entry total 3 people.
  • And the $25,000 High-Roller event was won by Jacob Schindler. He earned $1,279,880 for the win. This event saw a year-over-year spike of 161 to 198 entries. Greg Merson came in second for the event ($948,996). Last year’s winner of the event, Vanessa Selbst, finished third for $607,580. Daniel Negreanu finished 14th.

All in all, solid showing to start off 2014.
