Super Poker Sunday: Carter Swidler in the Spotlight

Super Poker sunday
Share this

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event has attracted a field of poker super stars and while it's filled with action and promises huge rewards to those that can handle the heat, Carter "cswidler" Swidler must have wanted a little bit more excitement on Super Poker Sunday.

Swidler made Day 3 — and the money — of the tournament and decided to head for the PokerStars mobile app where he could shoot more adrenelin into his game. He took a seat in the Sunday Supersonic, a weekly Sunday tournament with a turbo format. Both the tournament in the Bahamas and the online tournament kept his attention as he managed fourth place for $22,000 in the Sunday Supersonice!

"I don't ever do that," Swidler told PokerNews.com on Monday, "but I set my alarm for 6:25 to play the Supersonic knowing that it would take a really short amount of time. I somehow ran up a stack."

Swidler said he lost some focus in the Main Event due to multi-tabling — his table kept an eye on his online game too!

"It looked really strong when I was opening because I was playing on my phone and all the guys at my table were watching me play for $50K. Every time I raised it got through."

Swidler was still alive in the PCA Main Event as of Monday afternoon. Catch the updates on the PokerNews Live Reporting Page.

Notables that hit big scores online on Sunday were Bernardo "bedias" Dias, Matt "papamat25" Iles, Kiryl "angrymoron" Radzivonau and Alex "mistakooll" Keating, who won the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for almost $100,000.
