Grand Prize

PokerStars.net will be providing the Grand Prize for the tournament — A PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Package. It’s time to start dreaming about long days on the beach and serious action at the tables, because the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) is back. This time it’s going to be massive — with more events than before and even bigger prize pools to play for.

The PCA is the event that all serious poker players never miss, including hundreds of PokerStars qualifiers and Team PokerStars Pro. It’s part of the European Poker Tour, Latin America Poker Tour and the Asia Pacific Poker Tour, and is the biggest live poker tournament outside of the US, with one of the richest prize pools anywhere in the world. Last year’s winner Poorya Nazari won his seat via PokerStars and took home prize money of an incredible $3,000,000.

It’s all played out in the luxury surroundings of the Atlantis Resort & Casino on Paradise Island in The Bahamas. There’s plenty to do while you’re away from the table, including the best clubs and bars, fine restaurants and miles of white sandy beaches. The live poker experience doesn’t get much better that this, so make sure you're there!
