William Reynolds Wins the 2010 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure

A 21 year-old poker player from Sioux City, Iowa face the world's best poker pros at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $25,000 dollars High Roller event on January 14th, 2010 and came out a winner.

A poker enthusiast since he was 16 years old, William Reynolds is no stranger to poker success, having come in 4th place at the EPT San Remo last season for 377,000 euros. Reynolds also had six figure wins online, but the $576,240 dollars 1st place prize he won in the Bahamas marks his biggest win to date.

Reynolds said that it was the most exhilarating ride that he has ever been on. He said that there are a lot of times on the final table when it looked like that he was going home and he is just very happy to win the event. In just the first few card hands of the tournament's final table, short-stacked Dmitry Stelmak pushed all-in with his hand but got looked up by Tobias Reinkemeier.

Stelmak bowed out in 8th place collecting $66,885 dollars. Reynolds then sent home Canadian high-stakes poker pro Matt Marafioti, winning a heads-up match his ace-king vs. Marafioti's sevens.

Marafioti went home with $87,465 for 7th place. Will Molson then take a big chip lead doubling through Reinkemeier as the blinds rose to considerable levels for the five other finalists remaining.

Reinkemeier went home next, running eights against the kings of Reynolds to finish in 6th place, cashing in for $108,405. Before long, 2009 WSOP Ladies Champion Lisa Hamilton hit the rail, bowing out in 5th place when she lost out to the card hand of Molson.

A queen on the turn did Hamilton in and she was forced to settle for $133,770 in 5th place money. A short-stacked Michiel Brummelhuis then run into the aces of Reynolds and hit the rail in 4th place for $154,350. EPT London High Roller 4th place finisher Adolfo Vaeza finished in 3rd place this time around when he got in with a straight draw against the top pair of Reynolds and failed to get there.

As Vaeza headed to the cage to take home $218,150, Molson and Reynolds went ahead with the heads-up showdown. Reynolds held the lead from the outset and despite Reynolds doubling up Molson once to give away the lead, kept up the pressure until the championship was his.

Molson, who finished in 2nd place in this very event last year to poker pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, was forced to take home runner-up prize money again worth $322,075 as Reynolds take home the title and prize money.

Typical of a $25,000 dollars poker event, the PCA High Roller saw eighty-four of the best poker players in the world face off for the championship and Reynolds said that it was very tough to face with best players in the world.
