"PokerNews.com is hands down the global leader in live reporting. Their staff is world-class and has supported our PPC Poker Tour events from day one," commented Sandy Swartzbaugh, PPC Commissioner. "When it came down to covering our PPC Aruba World Championship, PokerNews was the only choice."
"I'm extremely happy to be able to announce that PokerNews will be covering the PPC Aruba World Championship. The entire PPC staff is great and we look forward to an amazing event," said PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters. "Aruba is one of the premier destinations in the world for a poker event, and I've been a long advocate that it needs to be a feature along the tournament circuit each year."
Aruba resumed its relationship with big poker tournaments in 2012 when the PPC returned with the $3,300 buy-in PPC Aruba Championship. Former World Poker Tour Player of the Year Joe Serock won the event for $40,574 after besting a field of 31 entries. Satellites have been running for the $2,500 Main Event at other PPC stops and the guarantee has been set at $200,000 by the PPC to grow the Main Event at Aruba.
Look for featured pro Serock to battle it out in Aruba this year as he defends his title and is up against the following players that have already confirmed attendance for the event: World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Ronnie Bardah, Vincenzo "Tortuga" Giannelli, Mike Beasley, Hayden Fortini, Christopher Bolek and Steve Karp.
Poker players of all levels can enjoy the buy-ins that run from $220-$2,500 and the PPC Aruba World Championship complimented by the appeal of Aruba as a worldwide vacation destination.
