Highlights of the 3rd Annual PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in 2006

The third installment of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure was held in 2006. From the 4th to the 11th of January, poker superstars from all over the globe convene at the elegant Atlantis Resort and Casino which can be found at the enchanting Paradise Island in the Bahamas. The event promised to be a great one for people who are in search for fun and adventure. Viewers were treated to a major spectacle in poker.

Co-sponsored by the World Poker Tour and PokerStars, this poker tournament is guaranteed to be one of the best in the history of the game. Just like the past two seasons, this event delivered one of the classic finishes ever seen as one of the satellite tournament winners emerged victorious in the end. It was so exciting that no one was ever expected to win easily and players must pass through an eye of the needle in order for them to survive.

After winning one of the satellite tournaments set up by the sponsors, Steve Paul-Ambrose defied the odds and won the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2006. He only spent a little less than a $110 to make his way through the final table. Despite winning the game through a satellite tournament, Paul-Ambrose is someone who is not new to the big poker tournaments. In fact, he has several money finishes at the World Poker Tour and the World Series of Poker in his credentials.

With a total winnings amounting to almost $1,700,000 from live tournaments alone, Paul-Ambrose is undoubtedly one of the highest earners in the game of poker. He is currently a member of the star-studded Team PokerStars. Based on his recent performance, he is very much at the top of his career. Expect a lot more excellent finishes for this superstar as he continues to battle it out with some of the best poker players in the world for years to come.

In the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2006, Paul-Ambrose faced Brook Lyter at the final round. After an unpredictable start, he was able to outlast Lyter to take home the grand pot amounting to $1,363,100. Among the other quality poker players that he was able to escape at the final table are Aurangzeb Sheikh, David Singer, Anders Henriksson, and Michael Higgins.

The event was very exciting from start to finish. There were lots of surprises along the way but in the end it was still Paul-Ambrose who managed to play consistently, excellently displaying his effective strategies and unique style of play.
