The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is always one of the biggest, most popular and most enjoyable tournaments of the year whether you win it or bust out on day one. The event will run from January 7-16, 2011, held once again at the luxurious Atlantis Resort & Casino in The Bahamas. It’s the perfect place to relax away from the tables, with hours of sunshine in one of the world’s best resorts. Last year’s Main Event winner walked away with a huge cash prize of $2,200,000, and now you could be next.
And because PokerNews just want an excuse to get over to the Caribbean and start working on our tans, we have decided to get together with PokerStars to offer players from the United States three $2,000 Added PCA Tournaments. The top ten finishers in each event will win a $215 Step 4 ticket for the PCA Sit-n-Go steps series*, getting you that much closer to some fun in the sun and action on the felt!
The next one takes place on November 16 at 20:35 Eastern Time and is open to any PokerNews referred account holders who have met the points target in October. The tournament is a $2.20 Freezeout with 10 x $215 Step Tickets added to the prize pool, which will thereafter pay out as per PokerStars standard payout structure.

The first $2000 PCA Monthly on October 19 had a very low attendance indeed. Just 112 players, with the top ten getting their $215 Tickets on top of their prize money and a total of 27 making it in the money. So approximately 1 in 4 players made it into the money and what makes this even more special is that for their $2.20 buy-in the players in the first tournament got the equivalent of a $20 buy-in, which is 10 times the equity of the original buy-in.
This could be the best value money added tournament you will find on PokerStars, so don't miss out on the next one!
The PCA is always a very popular event, particularly with young Americans who don’t have to be 21 to play in the tournament. It has a Spring Break feel to it and you also have a much better chance of getting paid because roughly 20% of the field will make it into the money, instead of the usual 10%. Last year 19 year old Harrison Gimbel made a name for himself in his first live tournament ever by winning $2.2 million:
If that wasn't enough already, PokerStars has a generous 100% up to $600 Sign Up Bonus when you use marketing code POKERNEWS.COM and bonus code STARS600, the biggest tournament guarantees in online poker, more live event satellites than anyone else and much more. They really are the biggest room in online poker by a mile and also boast the most generous VIP Loyalty Scheme in poker and the Battle of the Planets SNG promotion worth over $3 million each year.
But the best news of all is that not only can players from the United States and Canada play in this amazing series exclusive to PokerNews, they can also play in our monthly $15,000 Sunday Million Freeroll Series too. So that’s $19,000 in added value every month with the chance at turning your tickets into a life changing sum of money.
*If you can’t actually make the PCA, you can use your Step 4 ticket for any other equal Steps tournament or $215 MTT
