PokerStars has crowned a champion at the 2010 PCA!
Congratulations go out to Harrison ‘gibler321’ Gimbel for taking down the 2010 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. At the age of 19, Gimbel is the youngest player to be touting a PCA title. Early in the PCA, Gimbel gained notoriety by cracking Barry Greenstein’s AA with his 46 offsuit. LOL DONKAMENTS! Gimbel gained momentum at the final table by winning a critical race, AKs v JJ, that put a huge dent in Ryan D’Angelo’s stack and vaulted young Harrison to the top of the pack. Superior decison making and strong value bets propelled Gimbel to heads-up play versus Ty Reiman. The final hand of the PCA had the pocket tens of Gimbel holding a commanding preflop lead over pocket eights of Reiman. Gimbel cemented his edge with flopped a set of tens. The turn was an 8, giving Reiman a set of eights and a glimmer (the last 8 in the deck) of hope. The river was a brick, it was all over. Gimbel faded a one-outter and collected a $2.2 million pay day. Barry Shulman, Card Player CEO, finished in third place.
