Return of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure

After listening to feedback, the PCA will return as its old self after its one-year long rebranding as the PokerStars Championship Bahamas.

Atlantis_Paradise_Island_Resort The one-year run of the PokerStars Championship Bahamas has been and gone as PokerStars have announced that, from January 2018, the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA), will return.

Also returning is the $10k buy-in, up from last year’s $5k.

The move follows the processing of player feedback by the operator.

PokerStars Director of Corporate Communications, Eric Hollreiser, said the following;

“We’re reviewing our live events and incorporating player feedback to ensure we’re delivering the highest quality experience and exceeding player expectations. This feedback included suggestions that we restore the PCA name and improve the quality of that event to reflect the great heritage and unique experience that made PCA one of the most-anticipated poker events of the year.”

14th year at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort

The PCA will get underway from January 6 through 14 at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas, its home – in both forms – for the past 13-years.

The, as yet, unreleased schedule promises to be streamlined with over 30 tournaments to shoot for. The $100,000 Super High Roller tournament will start the festival off but the hype will, inevitably, be centred on the Main Event.

Last January, Christian Harder won the first, and as it turned out, only ever PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event for $429,664, seeing off 738 others. This field was almost 200 lighter than the year previous when 928 took part in the PCA.

Satellites from as little as $1.10 for the PCA start in September.
