In November, the exotic island of Punta Cana will play host to seven poker events on the Caribbean Poker Tour. The first stop is set as a $1,500 no-limit hold’em event at the William Hill Poker Open. Later in the month, the tour will venture to St. Maarten for a dozen more events, including a World Poker Tour Main Event. Also there, you will find 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 (17 days for €7,500), the St. Maarten Experience (10 days for €5,000), and the Punta Cana Experience (seven days 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.
Another way to escape to the beautiful Caribbean this November is by winning the “Crazy Video Contest.” CPT sought two-minute YouTube or Vimeo videos by the Aug. 9 deadline. Now, voting will be taking place on Facebook beginning Sept. 9. On Sept. 30, the CPT will announce the top six vote-getters, who will then make a second video. The winner of the second round will bank a one-week trip to the Caribbean from Nov. 7 through 14.
You can catch a glimpse of one of the submissions on Facebook.
