Posted at 20:00 2015-01-06 by PokerNetwork Staff

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) is back for its 12th year!

More than 400 players have already registered for the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) which kicks off tomorrow. This year’s PCA festival features a total of 35 events at Atlantis, running from January 6-14.

The schedule includes the first ever $3k LAPT Bahamas Main Event, the flagship $10k Main Event, the $25k High Roller, the $1k Ladies Event and the Americas Cup, plus the introduction of the new concept Double Bubble, where half the field gets paid, nightly turbo tournaments and a ton of Sit and Go and cash game action.

“PCA 2015 introduces the novelty of the Double Bubble format in some side events, as well as the joint effort of LAPT season 8 with PCA, and the shooting of Shark Cage season 2. All this together provides for an exciting kick-off of the 2015 poker season and another opportunity to celebrate poker at its highest standards in a dream location. I can’t believe it is going to be the 12th edition of the PCA; all of us are looking forward to it!” said David Carrion, PCA Director.

More than 330 players have qualified for this year's PCA Main Event, many for just a handful of dollars invested in online satellites. As well as cash prizes, the winners of the 2015 Main Event, High Roller and Super High Roller will also receive luxury watches from Swiss watch brand SLYDE, the official watch sponsor for the 2015 PCA.
