2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure: Side Event Recap 0001

The 2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is just about halfway completed and it's been an amazing series to kick off the new year. PokerNews has been on hand to provide all the live coverage from the $100,000 Super High Roller, the Main Event, the $25,000 High Roller and the North American Poker Tour Bounty Shootout. Those four events are the premiere events of the series, but the other side events have been very good, as well.

One amazing thing about the PCA is that you don't necessarily need to have a huge bankroll to come down and take a shot in paradise. There are plenty of events on the schedule to feed any poker player's appetite. The schedule has a plethora of buy-ins and events for everyone.
