|Some of the biggest names in poker will be trying to start their new year in the best way possible with a victory in PokerStars’ World Poker Tour Event at the Atlantis Casino Resort from January 5-11. The PCA event has attracted to its field the last three poker world champions – Chris Moneymaker (2003), Greg Raymer (2004) and Australian Joe Hachem (2005) – along with last year’s PCA winner, John Gale. |
The six-day poker event offers multiple daily tournaments, cash games, satellites, single table tournaments, and the crown jewel of the tournament - the PCA championship. One of the world’s most lucrative tournaments, the PCA has a buy-in to the championship event of $8,000 ($7,800 plus a $200 entry fee), with the total prize pool estimated to be $5 million.
For the third consecutive year, the PCA will be broadcast as part of the ever-popular World Poker Tour and 2005 World Series of Poker champion, Joe Hachem, is pumped up about his being a part of the PCA. 'The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is going to be a blast,' said Joe, 'I hope poker players everywhere will join me at Atlantis. This is my first opportunity to attend the PCA and I look forward to playing in one of the most exciting events in poker.'
