PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Is Back on Jan. 5 with Banging New Championship

PokerStars once again to celebrate the start of a new year with the globally popular PokerStars Caribbean Adventure starting January 5

As 2018 is about to turn 12 full months old, many are probably wondering what the new year has in store. As far as live tournament poker goes, 2019 is about to kick off with a bang, as one of the most exciting and globally popular events is set to begin just a few days into the new year.

For yet another year, the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure will be the first major poker festival on the annual circuit calendar. It will lure players and fans of the game to Atlantis Resort & Casino on Paradise Island in the Bahamas from January 5 all the way through January 16 and will feature a plethora of tournaments as well as thrilling cash game opportunities for all those who prefer that type of poker action.

The upcoming edition of the PCA will feature for the very first time ever the PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship (PSPC), or what organizers hope will become the largest live tournament poker event in the game’s history.

The PSPC Main Event will take place from January 6-10, 2019 and will be a rake-free tournament with a buy-in fee of $25,000, a staggering $9 million in contributed prizes, including $1 million added to the first-place prize.

As many as 300 players have already secured seats into the event by winning a Platinum Pass worth $30,000. PokerStars awarded the Platinum Passes throughout the year via online tournies, live events, and special offers.

Even though the PSPC will be the highlight tournament of this year’s edition of the PCA, the series will feature a wide number of other exciting and massive events. Here is a little bit more about those.

Key Events

Next year’s first Super High Roller tournament will take place within the PCA. The $100,000 Super High Roller (unlimited re-entry) is scheduled for January 10-12 and is expected to draw poker’s bravest, most seasoned pros, just as it has been doing for many years now.

The event drew 36 entries plus 12 re-entries last year for a prize pool of $4,737,600. American player Cary Katz bested its elite field to collect $1,492,340 in prize money.

The 2019 PCA $10,300 Main Event (single re-entry) is set to kick off on January 11 and to run through January 16. The tournament attracted 582 entries last year, but it was Maria Lampropulos who outlasted the field to be crowned the victor and scoop $1,081,100 from the prize pool.

The three-day $25,000 High Roller is one more tournament that will be watched closely as it will certainly draw quite some popular players. It will take place on January 14-16 and will allow players who bust to re-buy just once. All in all, the schedule of the 2019 PCA includes 41 tournaments as well as satellites into the events, cash games and a number of options for players to network off the poker tables over the course of the festival.
