PokerStars Championship Bahamas

Christian Harder Wins First Tournament in the Bahamas

29-year-old Christian Harder won the first PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event. The event which was originally known as the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure underwent the name change as part of the rebranding of the PokerStar’s Live Tours. This meant that Harder not only became the first PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event winner, but he also earned the title of the first champion on a new tour.

How the Tournament Works:

Entries: 738

Buy-In: $5,000.00

Top Prize: $429,664.00

Points Harder Earned for the 2017 Card Player of the Year Race: 1,824

Sponsor: Commerce Hotel & Casino

What the Win Means for Harder

With Harder winning the event, it placed him on top of the overall Player of the Year (POY) standings and awarded him a cheque worth $429, 664.00. In the final round, Harder faced 51-year-old Cliff Josephy. Josephy was able to make a comeback to make it a Heads-Up play against Harder, but it was Harder who managed to finish on top.

Harder said was pretty amazing as he had come a full circle. He further added it was where it all started for him. He had never played a big buy in until the 2008 PCA. Harder had never won a major tournament in his 9 years of playing and for him to finally win one was awesome.
