Qualifiers have begun for what organizers are hoping will be one of the largest female poker events of the year.

The 2010 Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure Ladies Weekend is set to take place Jan. 8-10 on Paradise Island in the Bahamas and PokerStars is now running online satellites into the event for as little as $2.20.

Up for grabs are packages worth $3,500 that include entry into the $1,100 Ladies No-Limit Hold'em tournament, travel expenses, three night's accommodations at Atlantis Casino and Resort, spa treatments and admission into the Ladies Boot Camp.

The Ladies Boot Camp will be taught by Team PokerStars Pro members Vanessa Rousso, Katja Thater and Victoria Coren, who will share some of the secrets that made them successful poker players.

The PCA Ladies Weekend is open to all women regardless of playing experience.

This is the first year that PokerStars has officially hosted a female tournament at the PCA. The event will also serve as the PokerStars-sponsored High Heels Poker Tour's grand final.

Interested female players can find satellites in the PokerStars tournament lobby under "Events" and "PCA." Alternatively, players can find the satellites by typing "PCA Ladies Weekend" into the event filter.

The 2010 PCA will include over 50 events and will run Jan. 4-14. Visit the PCA website to get the complete schedule.
