Cue the reggae or your favorite yacht rock playlist. We're going to the Bahamas. The online poker arms race got a little more interesting. partypoker has been making aggressive moves to keep pace with PokerStars and it looks like they will beat the red spade to the punch by hosting a special $25K buy-in Super High Roller event in the Bahamas in November, which is two months before the inaugural PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC) at the 2019 PCA.
partypoker LIVE announced they are hosting a MILLIONS World Tournament during their annual Caribbean Poker Party (CPP). This will be the third year of its existence and the first two were hosted in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. This year, the venue will for the CPP will switch to Baha Mar in the Bahamas. The newly added $25,500 SHR event will take place on November 9, 2018.
partypoker will be running satellites to the CPP SHR and giving away at least 100 seats for the fraction of the buy-in and as little as $22. These CPP prize packages are valued at $32,500, which means you get the full buy-in plus cash ($1,000 Resort Credit and $2,000 towards flights/transfers) and 10 nights at Bed & Breakfast for two. Yes, take your significant other along for the journey.
According to John Duthie, partypoker LIVE President, "There are many coveted titles in poker, from the EPT and WPT Grand Final titles, to WSOP and WSOPE Main Event and Players Championship bracelets, and not forgetting our own MILLIONS Grand Final crown. However, a $10,000,000 Guaranteed, $25.5k Buy-In tournament is just as important as any of those. We can't wait to hand the trophy over to our first winner in November, let's hope it's one of the 100+ online qualifiers partypoker will be sending, as that would be quite some story!"
Tom Waters, partypoker's Managing Director added, "The CPP is the most popular stop in our live calendar. From the prestigious tournaments to the spectacular ocean view casino, it's an unforgettable experience – and we love giving players of all bankrolls and all abilities the chance to enjoy it with us."
