British Poker Pro Max Silver Leads at PCA 2014 Main Event

British pro Max Silver is leading the last 72 players in the $10k PCA 2014 Main Event bagging up 1,453,000 for Day 4. The 23-year-old former Full Tilt Poker employee, here at the PCA with fiancee Lisa, has been on a tear in the last few months, ending 2013 with a sixth place finish for €160,200 at EPT Prague - which pushed his lifetime tournament winnings to more than $1 million. He cut his teeth on the PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour where his record includes the UKIPT Dublin Main Event title, four finals and a first and second in UKIPT High Rollers, including runner-up to Vanessa Selbst in the UKIPT London High Roller. Silver has also made two final WSOPE final tables and cashed in last year's PCA High Roller.

The Day 4 players, all guaranteed at least $22,800, include Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst - currently 5th with 911,000, Mike McDonald, Angel Guillen, Liv Boeree, Marcel Luske and Team Online's Marc-Andre Ladouceur.

There were 1,031 players at this year's PCA, creating a prize pool of $10,000,700 with the winner getting $1,820,420 along with a a “Steel and Black” design watch worth €5,550 from SLYDE, the Official Watch Sponsor of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2014. 151 players are being paid.

The players hail from 65 countries including 346 Americans who defied atrocious weather in the States to get to the Bahamas. They accounted for 34% of the field, with 143 Canadians also present (14%). See below for nationality pie chart and info graphic on how well Americans have performed at the PCA over the years!
