PCA 2013: Reigning champ John Dibella wins the first side event for $69,780
Reigning PCA champ John Dibella last night took down the first turbo tournament of the PCA10 continuing an incredible run of Bahamian form.
Dibella won $1,775,000 here last January beating Kyle Julius heads-up. Although the prize wasn't quite so juicy last night, just $69,780, that cash pushes the New Yorker through the $2m live earnings mark. That turbo was just one of 41 events taking place.
