Qualify now for your shot at riches in The Bahamas
Take a good look at the young gentleman in this photograph. This is Harrison Gimbel, who became the youngest ever PokerStars Caribbean Adventure winner in January. With victory came respect and admiration from the poker world. Oh, and the small matter of $2.2 million. That's a lot of money for a 19-year-old. His reaction at the time? "I feel like a rock star," he said.
Well, as you likely know by now the PCA, held at the luxurious Atlantis resort in The Bahamas, is a yearly affair and gives you the chance to follow in Gimbel's golden footsteps and make millions for yourself.
Even though the 2011 festival next January may seem far off, there are plenty of ways for you to win your seat on PokerStars right now. And already many of you have done just that.
You can find full details about how to bag your seat on the PokerStars PCA page, but here is a summary to start you on your way...
The PCA Mega Path
Put your FPPs (Frequent Player Points) to work by using them to enter Mega Path satellites to win your trip of a lifetime to The Bahamas. Starting from just 5 FPPs, you can make your way through the rounds until you get to Round 9, where there are PCA prize packages up for grabs. You can also buy-in directly to any round at any time.
To register, open the PokerStars lobby and click 'Events' >> 'PCA'.
So far more than seven million FPPs (yes, you read that right) have been used by PokerStars players on the Mega Path.
There's only a month left until the Round 9 on August 29, so start planning your assault now.
Weekly $700 satellites
These are running each Sunday at 6pm (ET) and offer a great way of securing your package (which includes Main Event entry, accommodation and more). Team PokerStars Pro Jude Ainsworth has won his seat this way already.
Enter the special $2,000 + $100 Step 6 qualifiers (again click on Events >> PCA in the PokerStars lobby).
Other routes to Bahamas glory will be announced soon, so keep an eye on the PCA page for more announcements.
Good luck, and we look forward to welcoming you to The Bahamas!
