The Players Poker Championship (PPC) Poker Tour kicks off its new season January 15-19, 2014 with the Tampa Downs Winter Fest at The Silks Poker Room. In addition, the PPC has announced that it is headed back to Fort Pierce Jai-Alai and Poker for the 2014 Fort Pierce Spring Classic from March 26-30, 2014.
"After an incredibly successful season for the PPC Poker Tour, we couldn't be more excited to head back to Fort Pierce," said PPC Commissioner Sandy Swartzbaugh. "Bumping the guarantee on the Main Event from $20,000 to $50,000 just shows the growth and popularity of poker in Fort Pierce. Players will be able to win packages back to the PPC Aruba World Championship series in October 2014."
The four-event series will feature a $225 buy-in, $50,000 guarantee Main Event, which will run from Thursday, March 27 through Sunday, March 30. Players can buy in any of the five starting days and then carry their largest stack into Day 2. The fields combine on Sunday, March 30 to crown a champion, and multiple Aruba packages will be awarded.
"We are excited to have the PPC back to our property," said Fort Pierce Jai-Alai and Poker Director of Operations Kyle Collett. "Our players gave us some great feedback about our end of the year $50,000 tournament, in which the prize pool reached almost $70,000. Now with the PPC returning for the Spring Classic we can offer at least a $50,000 prize pool paired with trips to Aruba for the PPC World Championship Series. Check Jaialai.net for a full list of tournaments and promotions."
To help players plan their next PPC poker trip, 20% of the Fort Pierce Spring Classic prize pool will go toward entries into the PPC Aruba World Championship that runs in October 2014. The PPC Aruba which features a $2,200 buy-in, $200,000 Main Event is the premier stop on the PPC Poker Tour at the beautiful Radisson Aruba Resort.
