Win your way to the PCA: second 100-seat Ultra Satellite

Alongside the weekend majors there was an event you might have missed on PokerStars last weekend. In fact, we know you missed it.

How? Because behind the scenes the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Ultra Satellite had a few people looking anxiously at the tournament counter as the field fell short of meeting the guarantee.

How short?

Quite a bit.

How short?

Well, let's not dwell on the details, but more than half a million dollars.

At least that got your attention.

It made the satellite one of the biggest value events of the weekend, if not the biggest, with an overlay of $574,820. That's half a million of free money added to the prize pool by PokerStars.

So with this in mind, and with brows now un-furrowed, we're planning another PCA Ultra Satellite, this one on Sunday November 5 at 14:35 ET, with another 100-seat $1.5 million guarantee, making it $3.2 million guaranteed across two events. Will we reach that amount this time? Well, there's only one way to find out.


It's all part of our commitment to making the PCA an event to remember, with big fields, big prize pools, and a great experience for our players at the Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island, in January 2018.

These 100 packages include Main Event buy-in, accommodation at Atlantis, spending money and flights to the Bahamas. It's everything taken care of leaving you to concentrate on poker.

And so we might have given away more than half a million dollars in the first Ultra Satellite - and congratulations to the 100 qualifiers who scooped that free value, but we're still going ahead with the next 100-seat guaranteed tournament on November 5. We're not trying to give away another half million (tell that to those behind the scenes with the white knuckles), but we recommend you don't miss it.

You can win your way into the Ultra satellite from as little as $1. Find more details in the PokerStars lobby or on the PokerStars Live website.

Good luck.
