Today’s the day we’ve all been waiting for as we crown the 2016 PPC Poker Tour Aruba World Championship Main Event Champion here at the Hilton Aruba Resort.
It’s a loaded field including outstanding pros like Christian Harder, Steve Karp, Dorian Rios and Jose Montes. Joining the excitement is PPC Season 3 Player of the Year John Ott and Jim Beadnell who won the opening event in this series. Our field also covers the United States with Wisconsin’s Joan Sandoval, Maryland’s Stephen Deutsch and Michael Lerner plus Florida’s Justin Swilling.
Karp will carry the chip lead with 978,000 chips followed closely by Jim Beadnell with 950,000. After that, it’s a large group of players in tight pack with John Ott carring the smallest stack at the table with 437,000 though it’s hard to use the term short stack with Ott at just over 36 big blinds.
