Every year, Canadian players flock to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure for a poker holiday, because well, for one, Canadian winters suck. Period.
This year a special event is to be held over the 2012 PCA; the PokerStars Canada Cup I, which will see 9 players jet setting to the Bahamas on January 9th to take their seats at a final table that will be filmed live for TV.
The final 9 will compete for the title, trophy, bragging rights and their share of the $250,000 prize pool. The winner will also receive a PCA High Roller entry along with first place money in the event; worth an additional $25,000 and giving the new Champion a great shot at parlaying the seat into a massive payday.
Players can satellite in to the $530 Sunday October 23rd finals for as low as 50 cents; a variety of qualifiers can be found on the schedule under the “Regional” tourney tab. The final online event starts at 7:30 ET next Sunday and will play down until the last 9 players are reached, then the game will be paused and virtual chips “bagged” until the live game resumes in the winter escape destination of the Bahamas.
Each of the top 9 finalists will receive a package that includes flight, luxury accommodations and some spending cash; and everybody will start with the same chip counts as they left off with in the online finals when they take their seats on January 9th, 2012, for the PokerStar Canada Cup Live Final Table.
The best of luck to all our CanadaPoker.com Canadian players and readers, here is hoping at least a few score a package for this one!
