The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) , set to take place at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in The Bahamas on January 6, will feature 104 events spread across nine days.
Organizers have nearly tripled the number of tournaments compared to last year and have also decreased the amount of the Main Event to $5,300.
The festival kicks off with the $100k Super High Roller and satellites for PCA events will be offered on PokerStars starting in September.
PokerStars is still not available to players in the US. According to PokerUpdate , the world’s leading online poker site is “unwelcome in some states” as a result of violations of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.
On September 8, the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will put on the Borgata Poker Open. The series features 22 events in all and starts things off with the $560 buy-in Borgata 2 Million.
The World Poker Tour joins in for the WPT Borgata Poker Open Main Event which starts on September 20 and includes a televised Final Table and $3 million in guaranteed prize money.
“Borgata is thrilled to welcome back the World Poker Tour for what is sure to be an incredibly successful fourteenth season,” said Joe Lupo, Borgata Senior Vice President of Operations. “The long-standing marriage between the East Coast’s preeminent poker destination and the premier name in televised gaming has been exceedingly beneficial and we are looking forward to another fantastic main event.”
Adam Pliska, WPT President added, “Home to some of the largest fields in World Poker Tour history, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has awarded more than $80 million in prizes since Season II. With the ability to generate massive prize pools, draw the biggest names in poker, and qualify players to events on both partypoker.com and BorgataPoker.com, Borgata offers tremendous value to all players.”
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa features 2,000 luxurious guest rooms and suites; an expansive 161-square-foot casino; a variety of nightlife options including Gypsy Bar, B Bar, and MIXX; and countless world-class restaurants including Old Homestead Steakhouse, Bobby Flay Steak, and Wolfgang Puck American Grille.
