Are pink drinks a cure for tilt? PCA Mega Sats offer a chance to find out
It's a story that appears every year but never really gets old. We typically notice it on the first day of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, although sometimes it's earlier because an eager member of staff will already begin poring through the list of players who have qualified for the Main Event even before the New Year hangover has worn off.
They're looking for one player in particular, the player in the Bahamas, playing poker in a luxury hotel, for the least amount of money.
Invariably there's someone in the Main Event there for a few dollars, having turned the price of a latte into a package including seat, accommodation, flight, and spending money worth $16,000. But if you look harder -- aha! -- there they are, the Mega-Path qualifiers in the Bahamas for 1 FPP.
It's a story as old as the PCA itself and once again it could be your name that leaps out at us as you make the trip of a lifetime for about the price of the cardboard cup that the latte we mentioned earlier comes served in.
All this weekend, including today (Friday) you can start your PokerStars Caribbean Adventure for as little as 1 FPP (you may want to treat yourself to re-buys), or alternatively in one of our other satellites, with buy-ins to suit every bank roll -- from FPPs, to a few dollars, to a few thousand. If things go your way you'll be on the beach in no time.
Check out the PokerStars client for details. If you're a PS7 user click on "Live Events", and then select the PCA tab from the menu on the left hand side. Follow the link to the PCA Event Lobby to find a full range of satellites.
The PCA is the most popular event on the PokerStars calendar, taking place at the beautiful Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. It's where you're never more than a few minutes from beautiful beaches and clear blue sea. It's the kind of place that even if things don't go as you hoped at the table, they most certainly will off them. It's widely known that pink drinks with umbrellas in them have for years served as the most effective cure for tilt.
For more details about the PCA itself check out the website. In the meantime get your trunks out of mothballs, and good luck this weekend.
