Blaycation, a specialty travel company that combines bucket-list adventures with vacations, has signed Bernard Lee as the company's official spokesperson. The first poker experience is scheduled to take place at this year's World Series of Poker.
From May 27 through June 1, 2015, Blaycation will be showing its clients the WSOP ropes, and the initial poker package will include entry into the $565 Colossus event that boasts a $5 million guarantee.
"I'm excited to partner with Blaycation and host this unique vacation opportunity for poker enthusiasts," Lee said. "Having played in poker tournaments worldwide since 2004, I am looking forward to sharing my poker knowledge with Blaycation participants. I know that taking a trip with Blaycation will create memories for a lifetime."
The initial poker package will come at a special introductory price of $1,975 per person if one registers by April 27. This price will include an entry into the $565 Colossus event, hotel accommodations, a welcome dinner, pre-tournament strategy breakfast, a private training seminar, and a tour of the WSOP. Furthermore, participants will likely be joined by various poker pros and be provided with a private concierge service.
The package is similar to special behind-the-scenes VIP packages offered at the world's top sporting events.
"If you have ever dreamed of entering a poker tournament like the WSOP, this is the perfect opportunity to fulfill your dreams," Lee added. "Our goal is to provide the personalized experience participants deserve, while getting a behind-the-scenes look at a prestigious poker tournament. The unforgettable experience will keep participants coming back to the WSOP year after year. I look forward to meeting many new faces during Blaycation’s WSOP Colossus poker experience."
