Get ready for some fun int he sun... virtually. 2020 has been one of the craziest years in recent memory, especially since the advent of online gambling. Luckily poker players have a virtual alternative to our current pandemic-stricken reality. As cases surge worldwide, partypoker made the wise decision to migrate their annual Caribbean Poker Party from a live tropical event to a virtual fiesta over at partypoker. It's not the same thing, but we have to roll with the punches and made due during the time of coronavirus.
Every major event headed online this year including the WSOP and its online version this past summer and event the European Poker Tour, which launched the EPT Online last weekend. partypoker joined in on the fun by moving the Caribbean Poker Party to the virtual tables at partypoker for the 2020 installment of the Caribbean Poker Party Online with ten tournaments with buy-ins ranging for as low as $55, and all the way up to the $25,500 High Roller.
And don't worry about those deep-pocketed re-entry freaks. The Caribbean Poker Party Online only permits a single re-entry in events.
On Friday, November 13 the Caribbean Poker Party Online (CPPO) begins with CPP Event #1 Opener $1,050 NL PKO. The two-day affair has a swanky $500,000 guaranteed prize pool and three opening flights.
CPP Event #4 will be the $25K Super High Roller with a $2 million guarantee, which takes place on Tuesday, November 17. The second high balla affair will take place on the last day, November 25, with the CPP Event #9 $10K High Roller, which boasts a $1M guarantee.
CPP Event #5 $1,050 NL HU will be perfect for heads-up specialists. The final event will be CPP Event #10 The Closer, which will be a $530 NL PKO.
"We're obviously all bitterly disappointed that there's not going to be a live version of the Caribbean Poker Party this year, but get your trunks and shades, put a bit of fake tan on, pour yourself a drink and join us all for the Caribbean Poker Party Online; mine's a pina colada!" said John Duthie, partypoker Live president John Duthie.
Adrian Mateos is the reigning Caribbean Poker Party champion. He faded a field of 948 runners to win the 2019 CPP Main Event and he banked $1.06 million. He had a swanky time in the Caribbean and even won a High Roller.
