Over the past few weeks, the partypoker blog has been highlighting some of the poker VIPs who are set to jet to Punta Cana in November for what is the must-play live poker event of the year: the Caribbean Poker Party.
Joining those VIPs, who include the likes of Daniel Cates, Sam Trickett, Igor Kurganov, and Michael Mizrachi, are the full roster of partypoker ambassadors and sponsored pros, all sporting the world famous partypoker patch and all hoping to return home with a suitcase full of cash and the welcomed problem of having their bag overweight due to the fact it has a winner’s trophy nestled inside it.
Poker legend Mike Sexton has travelled the world playing poker and commenting on the game. He’s not done too badly for himself either as he has more than $5.8 million in live tournament winnings, helped by a five cashes in the late 80s and early 90s on a Caribbean cruise.
Another of our players who has tasted success in the Caribbean is none other than Tony Dunst, who you may recall topped a field of 191 in the 2013 World Poker Tour Caribbean Main Event to win his first WPT title, oh and $145,000 in cash.
Roberto Romanello may not have cashed in the Caribbean before, but with a European Poker Tour and World Poker Tour title among his accomplishments, plus more than $3.3 million in winnings, he is sure to be a major threat to anyone who is unfortunate enough to try and outsmart him when the Caribbean Poker Party kicks off.
Also heading to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for some fun and poker in the sun are World Series of Poker bracelet winner Jackie Glazier, recently signed Brazilian Joao Simao, the four-time world champion boxer Carl Froch, former world number one for online poker tournaments Patrick Leonard, Twitch sensation Beata “Wild Hungarian” Jambrik, and last but certainly not least, Natalia Breviglieri.
You could be joining our red hot stars and VIPs in the Caribbean for as little as $0.01 thanks to the plethora of satellites running around the clock.
October 31 may be Halloween but there’s nothing scary about it. However, there are 50 x $6,000 Caribbean Poker Party packages guaranteed. In your way to the Final Phase via the $109 buy-in Phase One tournaments (which you can qualify for only $0.01), or buy in directly for $675 and see if you can win your way to the must-play poker festival of the year.
