10th Anniversary PCA Begins Tomorrow

The 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure kicks off tomorrow with 40 tournaments spread across 10 days at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.

The series of tournaments will begin with the $100,000 buy-in Super High Roller that Viktor “Isildur1” Blom took down last year for $1 million.

From there the series will run the gamut of poker variants with No-Limit Hold’em, PLO and more obscure games like Open Face Chinese. Buy-ins start at $300 so there are events for players with bankrolls of all sizes.

Of course the showcase tournament of the PCA is still the $10,000 main event, which will run from Jan. 7-13.

A fixture of the tournament circuit, 2013 marks the 10th time the PCA has been held. Various winners over the years include pros Gus Hansen, Ryan Daut and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier.

Last year amateur John Dibella outlasted 1,070 players and then beat noted grinder Kyle Julius heads-up to claim the $1.7 million first-place prize.

PokerStars Running Special Promos for PCA's 10th Anniversary


To celebrate its 10th anniversary PokerStars will be offering a couple of unique PCA promotions.

The PCA Photo Pimp Off will award a $1,000 tournament seat to a PCA side event to the person who takes a photo that best captures the PCA atmosphere and posts it to Instagram.

Meanwhile you don’t even have to attend the PCA to take part in the PCA Last Longer PokerStars Bonus.

You just have to pick one of 15 eligible Team PokerStars Pros and make a deposit of $100. If your pro outlasts the others, PokerStars will match your deposit. Simple as that.
