A little known female Spanish poker player was among the last standing (or in this case sitting) at the 2011 PCA Tournament (PokerStars Caribbean Adventure).  Ana Marquez was the chip leader with only 22 remaining after Wednesday’s play.  

There was an interesting development that occurred at the end of play as the tournament was scheduled to end with 24 players, however, three individuals busted within moments of each other.

Chris Moneymaker was more than holding his own, inching up a few spots to capture the number two chip leader spot.  Moneymaker is often thought of as the man who helped kick start the online poker craze back in 2003.  He was the last PokerStars pro remaining.  Perhaps in the tradition of Moneymaker, nearly half of those coming back on Thursday were PokerStars qualifiers. 

Ana Marquez is categorized as a “PokerStars Player”.

Here were your top 10 chip leaders coming into Thursday:

 

Ana Marquez                  Spain                  PokerStars player                  3805000

Chris Moneymaker         USA                  Team PokerStars Pro         3765000
