2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure set to kick off

2012 PCA PokerStars Caribbean AdventureOne of the most highly anticipated tournament series is set to kick tomorrow and take a bite out of the sting of winter. The 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) is consists of a total of 41 events packed into 10 exciting days of poker fun in the sun between January 5 to 14 and all held at the Atlantis Resort and Casino on Paradise Island in The Bahamas.

The Main Event is the $10,300 Main Event, a seven-day no-limit hold’em tournament, running January 7-13. Last year, 1,560 players entered the event, building a massive $15,132,000 prize pool. Galen Hall of the USA took home $2,300,000 for first place. Eugene Katchalov of the Ukraine won the $100,000 Super High Roller tournament for $1,500,000 and William Molson of Canada took down the $25,000 High Roller for a cash of $1,072,850.

Other Canadian triumphs at last year’s 2011 PCA included Andrew Chen of Mississauga, Ontario who won the $5,000 Bounty Shootout for a total of $269,000 after landing an incredible double knockout of Shaun Deeb and Michael Binger. Samuel Chartier of Montreal, Quebec won the $5,000 PLO Event 8-Max taking home $99,330 in prize money, also defeating Shaun Deeb.

A big turnout is expected even in the aftermath of last year’s poker Black Friday even as fewer players qualify through the conventional online satellites, especially from the United States.

Good luck to our Canadian poker team.

  1. Event 35 – The 2p2 players choice event is going to be a great one.

    It is called Paradise Pick ‘Em and is essentially a combo of HORSE and dealers choice. Each player will get dealt three cards, then the button decides whether the game will be hold em (discard one card), omaha 8/b (get dealt another card) or razz, stud, or stud 8 (players expose a card of their choice).

    I think it will be a great event, and if the Women’s event earlier in the day doesn’t go well, you will find me in there!

    Good Luck to all @ PCA!!! See you there!
