The 2017 Punta Cana Poker Classic is right around the corner

Paradise seekers get ready: the Punta Cana Poker Classic is right around the corner. Bountiful beaches and jam-packed poker action, the five-day affair is a dream poker vacation for both players and adventure seekers alike. Check out a few reasons why perhaps you should consider hopping a flight to the “Coconut Coast” and play some poker in the Dominican Republic’s lap of luxury, Punta Cana.

1. Non-Stop Poker
It’s five days of non-stop big-time action at the poker tables and whether you are a high roller or a heads-up aficionado the Punta Cana Poker Classic provides a little something for everyone. You can jump right into the PCPC main event ($1,500 + $150 No Limit Hold’em) or take your shots at a satellite for just about every event, including the two-day High Roller ($3,200 No Limit Hold’em). If that’s not enough card squeezing for you, the 13-event PCPC offers a number of one-day Turbo events, a $1K Second Chance and, of course, the debut of live versions of Sit & Go 2.0. But if you want more than poker, you can always check out…

2. The beautiful beaches of Punta Cana

Palm trees and white sand beaches, Punta Cana’s renown coastline is revered as one of the most visually stunning and inviting the Dominican Republic has to offer. From walks on the soft white sand to exploring more of the secluded portions of the 32 km coastline, if you are a beach freak the various hot spots in Punta Cana are something you are going to want to experience for yourself. But if sun and sand aren’t your idea of a good time you can always find something to do at…

3. The Melia Caribe Tropical Resort

When you are going on a “poker vacation” it’s imperative that you take good care of the “vacation” aspect of your trip and, by all accounts, the Melia Caribe Tropical package has everything one would want in a getaway. Boasting nine outdoor pools to relax in, all inclusive dining and drinks (even the good stuff), spas to help you get over those stressful all-in calls and a clean, comfortable room full of tropical opulence, the “vacation” aspect of your trip is in good hands. Of course, if you’re the adventurous type there’s plenty of…

4. Activities Outside The Resort

Like any great vacation destination, in addition to plentiful poker, Punta Cana offers experiences you won’t soon forget. Hit the links at Cap Cana, visit the Altos de Chavón Amphitheatre, swim with the dolphins at the Dolphin Explorer seaside park, visit the Manati Park zoo as well as adrenaline pumping activities like scuba-diving, snorkling, zip-lining, deep-sea sport fishing and more. But if all of these aren’t quite enough, here’s 500,000 more reasons to check out the PCPC…

5. $500,000 Main Event Guarantee

The Punta Cana Poker Classic seemingly has everything you would want in a tropical poker destination and that includes a healthy $500,000 guarantee on their 4-day Main Event. With 50 minute levels and a 20k starting stack, there’s plenty of room to maneuver en route to what should be a 6-figure first place prize. If, by chance, you happen to get too “cooled off”, there’s both 7 levels of re-entry and event a Second Chance event so you can stay in action all week long.

Make your plans early to visit poker paradise as the Punta Cana Poker Classic gets underway from October 24-29.
