The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) has a long history of being an event that all the top players want to attend and win. Since it started in 2004, over $50,000,000 has been awarded in prize money, with thousands of players taking part – including hundreds of PokerStars qualifiers.
Today is day 3 on the schedule of events for the 2011 PokerStars PCA which includes 47 scheduled tournaments, playing out between January 5th through the 16th, including the Main Event. PokerStars estimates the PCA Main Event will have a $20 million prize-pool; the $25,000 High-Roller tournament; and the coolest addition to the PCA schedule is a Super-High-Roller tournament with a One-Hundred-Thousand-Dollars buy-in.
Last year the PCA Main Event winner scooped up a smooth $2.2 million, making the PokerStars PCA the second most lucrative poker tournament in the world, just behind the World Series of Poker Main Event. It’s easy to see why the world’s top poker players have the PCA on their short-list of poker tournaments along with the WSOP Europe, The Aussie Millions, and WPT Championship.
