PokerStars Carribean Adventure Kicks Off Jan 4th

Poker Stars has announced their schedule for the Seventh Annual PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA). The PCA is going to be played out over ten days with over 50 different events all starting on January 4th, 2010.
The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is going to be held at the Atlantis Hotel and Casino on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. The Main Event is said to be the largest live poker tournament held outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.
The PCA Main Event last year drew in 1,347 players, 845 of them having won their seat and a Caribbean Adventure package at PokerStars. The prize pool was over $12 million dollars and Poorya Nazari from Canada took home first place and over $3 million dollars for his win. This year’s Main Event is going to have a $10,000 + $300 dollar buyin to create an estimated $14.5 million dollar prize pool.
It still isn’t too late to win your own seat and prize package to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. You can play in free rolls and satellites to make your way into one of the events.  If you’re not already a member you can join and take advantage of a great PokerStars Bonus.
Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, a Team PokerStars Pro won the Main Event in 2008 and said, “The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is definitely one of my favorite tournaments of the year. This is where I had my first and biggest win to date, in the 2008 PCA Main Event. Last year, I had another memorable success, when I won the High Roller event. I love going to the Bahamas for the PCA! The location and the organization are great, and I believe the competition is probably the toughest you can find in any live tournament, with all the internet pros and the best live players. I am really looking forward to playing the 2010 PCA!”
Poker variations that will be seen at this year’s PCA include; No Limit and Pot Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha 8 Hi/Lo and Badugi 2/7 Triple Draw. The PokerStars World Cup of Poker VI will also be featured in the line up. The nine countries from the global online preliminaries will get to battle it out on the live Grand Final for bragging rights and a share of $100,000 dollar first place prize.
This year participants can play in large variety of events, there are buy-ins for almost every budget starting at $200 dollars up to $25,000 dollars. There are going to be full ring, short handed and heads up events in the schedule.
You can watch the PCA Main Event, World Cup of Poker Grand Final and the High Roller Event live on PokerStars TV.
