2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure

Posted on by gambling guru

Atlantis Resort and Casino2013 begins with a bang for the stars of the poker world as they head to the Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas to take part in the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. 2013 will mark the 10th edition of the tournament, with the main event No Limit Hold ‘em prize pool projected to smash the $20 million mark.

Last year’s tournament saw John Dibella put his name on the poker map, as he became the first amateur to win the PokeStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, scooping a prize of $1,775,000. The New York Stockbroker got into the tournament by winning a $1,000 satellite at www.pokerstars.co.uk, proving that the tournament isn’t just for the pros.

Something for every player

While the media focus is on the main event and the stars of the poker world, there are a total of 40 events scheduled for the tournament. Over the course of 10 days players can buy into events from as little as $270 for the Turbo NLH to the $98,000 buy-in tournament for the high-rollers .

Players who want to get under the bar for some of the large buy-in tournaments by playing satellite tournaments for as little as $1. Players can even gain entry into one of the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure events by using their PokerStars Frequent Player Points to gain entry into select satellites.

Getting into the main event

The 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure showed the world what amateur players can achieve at the tournament. However, there’s a $10,300 buy-in to the main event, which is a bit stiff for many amateurs.

Fortunately PokerStars is giving players with smaller bankrolls a hand up for the event, by offering them the opportunity to win one of 100 fully-paid packages to the event, including travel expenses, main event buy-in and 9 nights in the Atlantis Paradise Island resort.

All it costs to have a shot at making it big is the $10 it takes to get into the weekly satellite 10 seat satellite event. This satellite will be offered every Sunday at 12:00 (ET) until the 9th of December 2012. Qualifiers for these satellites will be available for microstakes players.

The final tables of the main event are scheduled to be broadcast on the European Poker Tour live webcast, which means poker fans can catch the most important action from the biggest tournament even if they can’t make it to the Bahamas in 2012.
