Revamp for 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure


The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) will return in January 2016 and things will be a little different this time around.

The most notable changes are a lower PCA Main Event buy-in of $5,300, which is in line with European Poker Tour (EPT) Main Events, and a tripling of the total number of events from 35 poker tournaments in 2015 to 104 poker tournaments in 2016.

The buy-in for the LAPT Bahamas event, which made its highly successful debut last January, has also been reduced and will now cost $2,200.

Qualifier tournaments

It is expected that these changes will translate into a huge increase in qualifiers to the festival, as well as attracting more recreational players to the PCA experience than ever before.

Hundreds of satellites will be running on PokerStars over the coming months, giving players the chance to win their way to the Caribbean for as little as $1.10.

Something for everyone

The PCA 2016 schedule follows a “something for everyone” formula that has proved a success on the PokerStars European circuit, where players enjoy festivals featuring dozens of different events, fun and exciting variants and a wide range of buy-in levels that give everyone a chance to participate.

The packed schedule features variants including Win the Button and Deuces Wild, H.O.S.E., PLO and bounty tournaments.

The flagship $100k Super High Roller will start off the nine-day festival in style, with $50k and $25k High Roller events also on the schedule later on.

Traditionally, the PCA has always had a wealth of additional player activities on offer away from the tables including daily Q&A sessions with Team PokerStars Pros and lots of fun competitions taking place on the live webcast.

Satellites for PCA 2016 are starting in September on PokerStars. There will be more ways to qualify than ever before and players can qualify for as little as $1.10.
