Punta Cana will host seven poker events on the Caribbean Poker Tour (CPT) in November. The exotic island of Punta Cana has everything you dream of in a vacation resort, but best of all, it's going to rock when the first stop puts cards in the air in a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event at the William Hill Poker Open.
Next up for dream poker vacations is St. Maarten where the tour explodes with a dozen more events — including a World Poker Tour Main Event. The fun and poker action heats up when you get a seat in a $7,000 buy-in, seven-handed Lucky Number 7 High Roller tournament and you could end up rubbing elbows with German pro Tobias Reinkemeier, the host of the event.
Fear not if you think you can't afford the trip or the buy-ins because qualifying is running now for CPT events online on the iPoker Network, the tour’s main sponsor. Head over to William Hill, Betfair, Winner Poker, Titan Poker, Gala Poker and Win2day.be (all part of the iPoker Network) and start playing for your dream poker vacation! There are three packages to take you on your super holiday and they include the Ultimate Caribbean Package — 17 days for €7,500; the St. Maarten Experience — 10 days for €5,000; and the Punta Cana Experience — seven days for €4,000.
“The CPT is the holiday of a lifetime with poker included,” CEO Leon Groenewoud told PokerNews.com. “This is an opportunity to take your friends and family with you, and they will love it. With each package you will play at least two tournaments, and you don’t need any money for food or drinks. With our adventure vouchers you can choose the activities you’ve always wanted to try.”
The two resorts — Bavaro Princess All Suites Resort Spa & Casino and Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino — will bring the meaning of entertainment into focus when you swim with dolphins, go deep-sea fishing, and prepare to sail out to see in a catamaran.
Along with qualifiers to win your trip to the Caribbean in November, the “Crazy Video Contest” can get you there too! CPT asked for two-minute YouTube or Vimeo videos, the deadline was August 9th, and voting begins on Facebook on September 9th. The CPT plans to announce the top six vote-getters on September 30th. Those winners will make a second video and the winner of the second round will score a one-week trip to the Caribbean from November 7th through 14th.
