Next month, the exotic island of Punta Cana will play host to seven poker events on the Caribbean Poker Tour. The first stop is set as a $1,500 no-limit hold’em event at the William Hill Poker Open. Later in the month, the tour will venture to St. Maarten for a dozen more events, including a World Poker Tour Main Event. Also there, you will find a $7,000 buy-in, seven-handed Lucky Number 7 High Roller tournament hosted by German pro Tobias Reinkemeier.
Players can qualify for CPT events online on the iPoker Network, the tour’s main sponsor, which includes sites like William Hill, Betfair, Winner Poker, Titan Poker, Gala Poker and Win2day.be. Three packages are up for grabs, including 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).
For more information on these packages and which sites allow you a chance to win them, head to the CPT website.
There are nearly 50 package winners for the CPT already, and the packages have been won in a variety of ways. Package winners hail from all over, including countries such as Poland, Germany, Denmark, Austria, Romania, Sweden, Hungary, and the United Kingdom. This truly makes the CPT event a lively international affair. To check out the list of package winners, please click here. Hopefully, you'll be able to see your name added to this list soon!
“The CPT is the holiday of a lifetime with poker included,” CEO Leon Groenewoud told PokerNews. “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.”
As always, all information regarding the CPT can be found on the tour's website.
