PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2009

by Poker Team

PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2009The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure was an amazing success last year with the main event having a total prize pool of $8,594,976 and 1,136 registered players. The event features a main event tournament, high rollers tournament and a few other smaller tournaments throughout the duration of the event.

Dates and Location

The Caribbean Adventure starts on January 5th with the last day of action on the 10th of January. You’ll be glad to hear that the event is taking place in the Bahamas, so if you live somewhere with winter then you’ll get to leave the cold weather to travel to the Bahamas and play poker. The entire PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is being held at the luxurious Atlantis Resort & Casino.

Caribbean Adventure Satellites

If you want to try and qualify for this massive main event tournament then you can do so for as low as $7.50 or 500 FPP Points on PokerStars. They’ve used there famous Steps satellites program so you’ll need to win 5 steps satellites in order to eventually play for a chance of one of the 2009 PAC Prize Packages.

If you do win a satellite seat into the main event then not only is your $10,000 buy-in paid for, but you also get your accommodations paid for at a value of $3,300 and $1,000 in spending money while in the Bahamas. The total prize package for the satellite winners is valued at $14,300. How to qualify:

Buy-in to PokerStars Caribbean Adventure

If you want to buy-in into the main event instead of trying to win a seat then you can do so right inside of the PokerStars lobby. For those of you who choose to buy-in into the main event the cost is $10,000 and you’ll still need to find your own accommodations.

Expected Prize Pool

With last years prize pool just shy of $10 million I’m expecting this years PAC to have a prize pool of well over $10 million. If you exit the main event tournament early and you still want to play poker then you’ll be able to enter one of the side events featured at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
