Starting in January, Maryland Live! Casino will host monthly satellite tournaments for the Oct. 2014 $200,000 Guarantee PPC Aruba World Championship at the Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino and Spa.
The PPC Maryland Live! Aruba Satellite Series runs from Jan. 13-19 with $60 buy-in tournaments held Monday through Saturday at 11:00 a.m. Players will have an opportunity to compete for a $520 buy-in, $5,000 PPC Aruba prize package tournament on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. The week-long tournaments will be held each month until August of 2014.
The $5,000 PPC Aruba packages include a $2,200 buy-in at the 2014 PPC Aruba World Championship, a $200 buy-in for a $15,000 guarantee event, a $100 buy-in for an event with a guaranteed first-place prize of $5,000, and a seven-night stay at the Radisson.
"The winners from Maryland Live!’s first Aruba Satellite Series raved about the ‘Poker-Cation’ in Aruba and are incredibly excited about the opportunity to win packages in 2014,” said Sandy Swartzbaugh, Commissioner for the PPC. “Not only did players have a great time, satellite winner Stephen Sindler, from Hanover, MD, made the final table in the 2013 PPC Aruba World Championship Main Event."
German Robin Kazemieh won the 2013 Main Event, earning $59,139, and Joe Serock took it down in 2012, taking home $40,574.
