Road to Bahamas Ultra Satellites to send 200+ players to the PCA
Tournaments guarantee more than $3 million in packages to be won by players this October and November
You might have heard we're making a few changes to the PCA, not least returning the name PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. We're also doing our best to get as many players to the Bahamas in January for what we hope will be one of the biggest events of the year.
With this in mind we've scheduled two 'Road to the Bahamas' ultra-satellite tournaments, guaranteed to send at least 200 PCA package qualifiers to Paradise Island.
The PCA Ultra satellites (which can be bought into directly for $530) are likely to be among the largest PokerStars Live qualifying events for some time.
Each $15,855 PCA package contains a $10,300 PCA Main Event buy-in and nine nights' accommodation at Atlantis Resort & Casino worth more than $3,000, as well as $1,000 cash credited to Stars Account and $1,000 resort credit to spend at Atlantis.
The dates to note for these satellites are October 15 and November 5.
Each PCA Ultra Satellite will guarantee a massive 100 PCA packages worth more than $1.5 million in total.
What's more the PokerStars team has made sure that there is something to suit every game preference and bankroll with six routes into the Ultra Satellites (or win a PCA package outright).
Stars Rewards: More than $1 million in PCA satellite tickets will be added to Stars Rewards Chests from September 25 to November 5.
Spin & Go Qualifiers: Special qualifying tournaments will have a host of prizes added, from $55 PCA Satellite tickets to full PCA packages worth $15,855.
Sit & Go On Demand: Special 18-player $55 Sit & Go satellites will award $530 PCA Ultra Satellite tickets.
$55 Multi-Table-Tournament Satellites: For players who like larger scale tournaments, $55 MTTs will also be awarding PCA seats, packages and satellite tickets.
Cash Game Daily Challenges: On completion of a daily puzzle, players will be registered to an All-in Shootout for the chance to qualify for Road to Bahamas Cash Game Weekly Finals which will each have a $50,000 prize pool and one PCA Package to be won.
Spin & Go Weekly Challenges: Accumulate 25 points by playing different Spin & Go's to qualify for Weekly Finals which also have prize pools of $50,000 and PCA packages to be won.
"Road to Bahamas is one of our biggest qualifying events ever and what better occasion to pull this off than the return of the PCA?" said David Carrion, Director of Poker Marketing at PokerStars. "We want to share the unique PCA experience with as many of our players as possible and we look forward to welcoming all of the successful qualifiers for some incredible poker memories in January."
