Posted at 13:36 2008-12-14
The popular PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) is back once again and will begin on January 5, 2009 at the Atlantis Hotel and Casino in The Bahamas. It is expected that many of the world’s top players will be in attendance for a “festival” of poker which will run from January 5-10.
2008 PCA Champion & Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier will return to defend his title, alongside other members of Team PokerStars Pros, seasoned pros and amateurs from around the world. Last year’s event generated a massive prize pool of more than $8.5 million with over 1,000 entering the event in one of the largest ever field seen outside of the United States. Many of the entrants qualified on PokerStars with satellites and step tournaments running around the clock.
The buy-in for the fifth annual PCA Main Event has been set at $9,300 + $300 buy-in and should produce a record-breaking prize pool.
“At PCA, you are among the best players in the game at one of the world’s most exotic and luxurious locations to play poker,” said Team PokerStars Pro and 2008 PCA Champion Grospellier who collected $2 million for his win last year. “You really couldn’t ask for a better place to learn more about the game and I can’t wait to go back and defend my title.”
This year the PCA will become a ‘Festival of Poker’, featuring a string of side events with buy-ins of $1,000, $2,000 and $5,000 - all No Limit Texas Holdem events. It will also include the ever popular Battleship of Online Poker and the new addition of the World Cup of Poker Final. There will also be a special $25,000 High Rollers Event which will attract the cream of the crop over January 8th and 9th.
In addition, players will have the opportunity to enjoy the PokerStars Poker Camp which will be held from January 7th to 9th. The PCA Poker Camp will give PCA qualifiers and the public a chance to improve their game with training from the biggest names in the game including Team PokerStars Pro members Greg Raymer, Daniel Negreanu, Chris Moneymaker and Vanessa Rousso.
