Poker players now have an opportunity to win a poker holiday in an exotic Caribbean location, where they can not only have fun, but also win large pots. This is because the Caribbean Poker Tour (CPT) will be launched in Punta Cana, a picturesque Caribbean island, in November.
Satellite qualifiers for this event have already been launched at various online poker rooms, and players are encouraged to win a prize package to the CPT in Punta Cana.
The CPT will comprise 7 poker tournaments, including the $1,500 buy-in NL Hold’em William Hill Poker Open Tournament.
Later in November, the CPT will proceed to St. Maarten, a short distance from Punta Cana, where 12 more poker tournaments, including the WPT Main Event, will be held. Tobias Reinkemeier, a professional poker player from Germany, will host the Lucky Number 7 High Roller Tournament, a seven-handed event with a buy-in of $7k. Top features of this event include limitless re-entries, and while the first re-entry will cost players $6k, all the others will cost them $5k. The CPT website informs that the average chip stack will be 100 big blind after re-entry.
Players who wish to vacation in Punta Cana can try winning a CPT prize package at online poker rooms on the iPoker Network, such as Titan Poker, William Hill Poker, Winner Poker, Betfair Poker, and others. iPoker is giving away 3 CPT prize packages—the €7,500 17-day Ultimate Caribbean Package, the €5,000 10-day St. Maarten Experience, and the €4,000 7-day Punta Cana Experience.
PokerNews has reported CEO Leon Groenewoud as saying:
The CPT is the holiday of a lifetime with poker included. This is an opportunity to take your friends and family with you, and they will love it. With each package you will play at least two tournaments, and you don’t need any money for food and drinks. With our adventure vouchers, you can choose the activities you’ve always wanted to try.
The Caribbean Poker Tour is also organizing the Crazy Video Contest to help players win a trip to the Caribbean. Players have till Aug 9 to submit videos, and the makers of the six videos voted to be the best on Facebook, starting September 9, will have to take part in the finals of the contest. CPT will announce the names of the six finalists on September 30. The winner of the finals will get a one-week vacation package to the Caribbean, from November 7 to November 14.
