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.
On Monday, the CPT launched a new app for Android and iPhone, that will be used to give away satellite tickets. Players can qualify by downloading the app, opening it and clicking "Start Quiz," then answering as many questions correctly as possible. When players are finished, they must click "Show Reward" and give their name and email address. On Monday, Sept. 30, the CPT will pick three winners to participate in a €200 satellite on the iPoker Network.
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).
