We all thought the days of an online site sending hundreds of satellite qualifiers to an event was over, but next year's PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, between January 6-14, will change that.

At the time of writing PokerStars have already awarded 291 players with PCA packages, and they has said they expect to send over 400 in total. 

This is very likely to make the PCA one of the softest big buy-in events of 2018, especially when you consider many of those seats were won in Spin & Go satellites, Challenges and the two 100-seat Ultra Satellites. 

Bigger than last year by miles

PCA

The 2018 PCA has also doubled its buy-in, returning to its original $10,300 entry fee, meaning that the prize pool has almost grown larger than this year's PCA. This January it was $3,376,712 and next January it already stands at $2,987,000. We could easily see it go beyond $10 million in 2018.

This year's winner Christian Harder took down the event for $429,664, next year it looks highly likely the PCA will return to the days of a seven-figure champion. 

You can still qualify for the PCA at PokerStars every Sunday in direct $530 qualifiers to win a $15,855 package that includes travel and accommodation. There are feeder satellites of all buy-in levels running around the clock.
