In less than two months, on Nov. 8, the Caribbean Poker Tour will launch with seven tournaments on the beautiful island of Punta Canta. The headlining event is a $1,500 no-limit hold’em William Hill Poker Open event, and later in the month the tour will venture to neighboring St. Maarten for a dozen more events, including a World Poker Tour Main Event at Casino Royale in Maho Bay. St. Maarten will also play host to a $7,000 buy-in, seven-handed Lucky Number 7 High Roller tournament hosted by German pro Tobias Reinkemeier.
Players can qualify for CPT events online on the iPoker Network, the tour’s main sponsor, which includes sites like William Hill, Betfair, Winner Poker, Titan Poker, Gala Poker and Win2day.be. Three packages are up for grabs, including the Ultimate Caribbean Package (a 17-day package worth €7,500), the St. Maarten Experience (a 10-day package worth €5,000), and the Punta Cana Experience (a seven-day package for €4,000).
“The CPT is the holiday of a lifetime with poker included,” CEO Leon Groenewoud told PokerNews. “This is an opportunity to take your friends and family with you, and they will love it. With each package you will play at least two tournaments, and you don’t need any money for food or drinks. With our adventure vouchers, you can choose the activities you’ve always wanted to try.”
Among the activities offered at the two resorts, Bavaro Princess All Suites Resort Spa & Casino and Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino, are swimming with dolphins, deep-sea fishing, and catamaran sailing.
Also, each Monday, one person out of the CPT Facebook fan base will be picked to play in a €330 satellite for the “Ultimate Caribbean Package” (worth €7,500) on iPoker for free. All you have to do is "like" CPT on Facebook.
