partypoker Caribbean Poker Party to Challenge PokerStars' Caribbean Adventure in Bahamas with $22M in Guarantees

Who wouldn't want to spend a vacation on a warm sunny beach and play poker this November? Hundreds of players are vying to get a spot for the upcoming partypoker Caribbean Poker Party located in Bahamas, where the poker operator is hoping to make a good impression with a live series in a place that for almost 15 years has been the home of PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.

This new segment added to partypoker's LIVE MILLIONS series is scheduled from November 9 to 18, 2018. The setting is the brand new Baha Mar, the biggest hotel and casino complex in the Caribbean that opened in June, featuring three separate resort hotels of 2,300 rooms perched atop the pristine white sands of Cable Beach.

As players marvel over the setting, the tournament's attention grabber is over $22 million in guaranteed prize pools, which includes a $10 million guaranteed Main Event ($5,300 buy-in).

According to partypoker, they're expecting around 2,000 players to join.

Rivalry with PokerStars
The first two editions of this series were actually held in the Dominican Republic, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana. This decision to move the event to the Bahamas is a clear indication that partypoker wants to take on PokerStars' long-time dominance in the region.

Nassau, Bahamas has always been the home of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (now called the PokerStars Players Championship) at the nearby Atlantis Bahamas Resort since 2004. For a long time now this area has been a favorite destination in one's poker calendar every January.

PokerStars' Bahamas event is scheduled on January 6 to 14, 2019. Players still have the chance to win one of over 300 Platinum Passes to the $25,000 championship event. A Platinum Pass also includes free airfare and hotel accommodation in the Bahamas.

partypoker Caribbean Poker Party Highlights
This November, for high rollers, the high-stakes action starts instantly for them with a $25,500 buy-in Millions World ($10 million guaranteed) high roller NLHE tourney on the first day. It is expected that more than 400 of the top players in the game will compete in this event.

CPP Highlights

  • November 9 to 13 - $25,500 Millions World NLH ($10 million guaranteed)
  • November 10 to 17 - $5,300 Main Event NLH ($10 million guaranteed)
  • November 14 to 16 - $250,000 Super High Roller Championship NLH (no guarantee)
  • November 15 to 17 - $1,100 Finale NLH ($1 million guaranteed)
  • November 15 to 17 - $10,300 High Roller NLH ($1 million guaranteed)

For low-stakes players, there are five tournament events with a $275 buy-in. Overall, there will be 11 events along with several satellites available.

The opportunity to win millions of dollars isn't the only thing that's attracting poker players to come over to the Caribbean. Since the temperature can reach freezing levels in many parts of the globe that time of the year, the idea of being able to bask under the warm sun and frolic in white sandy beaches of the Bahamas is definitely appealing.

Not bad playing poker if you have what it takes and mostly money,
but you are going to be at that place in the picture, and you are going to spend
your hours by playing cards ? Smile
Right next to the sea and it has so many pools Smile
This place is amazing...

It is a dream for the poker player to spend a vacation in an incredible place and to play poker is priceless and more sponsored by Party Poker, we hope to reach that great tournament and luck to all who participate.

Any man wants a vacation on a warm sunny beach, but for that, these poker rooms should make early many satellites for Bahamas games, because many players are interested in this, but the entrances are quite large for big tournaments. If there are more satellites, then tournaments will be guaranteed success. Anyway, in Bahamas very nice on vacation or to play poker.

LOL...... so, we’d better start playing those free or cheap sattelitesory and earn entry to the tournaments that deliver the big prizes. Would love to see a fellow monster get into the Bahamas series and tell us all about their exploits and hopefully successes at the tales. Good luck to you all and hope some of you get in!

It doesn worth winning a package if it is possible, through satellites,
or low buy in tournaments, just to go and stay at that resort.
Everyone with a sat package wouldnt have s single problem with no winning from the tournament.
Winning on top of that, would have been the cherry on the pie Smile

This is the stuff that dream are made of, being able to play in a setting like this. You would definitely be living the millionaire lifestyle if you are lucky enough to win one of these packages
 Gerimantas30/08/2018 13:43:39 GMT
I thinking this is my dream holiday, to be in bahamas one week in good hotel and eat good food and play poker for one week in many tournaments with big prizes. Of course to win something in tournament is another good thing for holiday
 Mober30/08/2018 14:38:55 GMT
I wouldnt mind being in a very simple bungalow, in bahamas, close to the sea.
That would have been enough Smile

That announcement from party poker...
Packages to be won, through satellites, with 1050 USD buy in Smile
If you get lucky though you can save 11k USD...
 CALICUL30/08/2018 18:29:44 GMT
It is certainly very beautiful but for that you must to be a good player who make money from poker, and your bank account allows you to play in those tournaments. Who would not want to go there? Maybe just rich people or sick people who can not move. Is a vacation, that is not worth the miss, if you have this opportunity. Blink
