2010 Pokerstars PCA Qualifier Details

The Pokerstars PCA (Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure) tournament begins in January of 2010 and qualifiers are running now. For just $1.10 or 111 FPP’s, players can win their $15,100 seat and an all-expense paid trip to the Bahamas.

Taking place at the Atlantis Resort & Casino Hotel on Paradise Island, the 2010 PCA looks to be even bigger than it was in 2009. The 2009 Pokerstars PCA was the second largest tournament of the year, with a prize pool of almost $12.7 million. Canada’s Pooya Nazari won the event, and he took home $3 million for the win. The only annual tournament that is bigger is the World Series of Poker Main Event.

The PCA is a huge event for several reasons. For one, it’s a tournament where the European Poker Tour (EPT), Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT), and the Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT), all come together. Secondly, can you think of a better vacation than playing poker in the Bahamas? Fruity drinks, hot bodies, sun in January…and playing poker with the top names in the game makes it the hottest stop along the tournament circuit. Combine that with a huge selection of non-stop qualifier tournaments at, and you have a recipe for success.

Qualifier tournaments for the 2010 PCA started running at Pokerstars a couple of weeks ago, with buy-ins starting for as little as 111 Frequent Player Points, or $1.10 in cash. There are multi-table qualifiers and Steps tournaments starting every few minutes, with buy-ins that range from $1.10 up to $700, and everywhere in between. This means that no matter what your bankroll is, there are qualifiers that will fit your budget. There are no other online poker websites offering satellites to the PCA.

Pokerstars has also just announced the PCA Freeroll Fantasy promotion where players can win seats into the 2010 PCA for free. From October 17th through December 5th 2009, 20 minutes past the hour at every hour of the day, Pokerstars will be running a freeroll tournament to feed the Main Event. Players can enter one PCA freeroll tournament each day, for up to 50 chances to win.

The top 9 players in each freeroll will win a seat into one of three PCA Main Event Qualifier tournaments which will be held on December 6th. The Main Event Qualifiers will be run at different times throughout the day to cater to players around the world. The top 9 players in each Main Event Qualifier will win a $15,100 package to the 2010 Pokerstars PCA in January.

If you like, you can also play in $1.10 PCA qualifiers that play 24 hours a day. These all start 40 minutes past the hour, and the top 9 in each qualifier will win a seat to the Main Event Qualifier. Additional cash generated will be paid out to the top 15% of the field.

If you have the extra cash, you can also play in a huge variety of other PCA events. There are several tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $500 to $5000 happening every day of the series.

All of the top names in poker will be there…will you?
