The world famous Mike Caro was among the 50 or so players still standing in the 2010 Punta Cana Poker Classic late Friday evening.  The event is to conclude on Saturday.  The chip leader was one of two DoylesRoom.com online poker room qualifiers still alive.  All of the DoylesRoom pros, including Doyle Brunson himself, had been eliminated by Friday evening.

Mike Caro is one of the biggest names at the event, taking place all this week at the fabulous Punta Cana Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Caro is a professional poker player, pioneer poker theorist, author of poker books, and casino executive.

In 1978 he contributed 50 statistical tables to Doyle Brunson's Super/System and wrote that book's chapter on draw poker. He acts as a consultant to many casinos, providing odds, and he helped develop the Poker Probe, the first serious commercial PC program for analyzing poker situations.

In 1984 at the World Series of Poker he demonstrated Orac (Caro backwards), a poker-playing computer program that he had written. Orac was the world's first serious attempt at an AI poker player, and most poker professionals were surprised at how well it played.

Heading into the Punta Cana Poker Classic, Caro’s lifetime winnings were just over $150,000.
