[caption width="640"] Partypoker is making it easy to get yourself a seat in the Caribbean Poker Party event/[/caption] In August, partypoker made a splash when it doubled the guarantee of its signature Caribbean Poker Party tournament, the partypoker Million, to a total of $2 million. Now, the site continues to sweeten the deal, this time announcing that it will give away 30 $6,000 CPP trip packages in each of its weekly satellites. The CPP Final Phase tournaments, as they are known, run each Monday at 4:15 PM ET. The top 30 finishers win the $2,750 buy-in to the partypoker Million tournament, plus airfare and all-inclusive accommodation at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in beautiful Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. While the main focus of the CPP will be the Million event, players will also have the chance to compete for $1 million in guaranteed cash in the $5,000 buy-in WPT Caribbean event, which kicks off on November 19. Sign up now for a partypoker account Those lucky enough to win two trip packages can use the second to pay for the $5,000 WPT tournament, and will receive $1,000 cash deposited into their partypoker account. Qualify for $0.01 While it may not be the easiest route to Punta Cana’s white sandy beaches, players have the opportunity to win a package for as little as $0.01 through a series of qualifiers. To start your journey, find the Live Events tab in the software client and enter one of the Live Events Tickets tournaments. From there, the tournaments progress as follows: $0.01 tournaments giveaway 20 x $1.10 tickets $1.10 tournaments feed into a $5.50 buy-in events $5.50 tournaments feed into $22 buy-in satellites $22 tournaments feed into the $109 buy-in Phase One events $109 tournaments move those who make it to the 16th level to the Final Phase $675 tournaments award 50 x $6,000 trip packages If players are unsatisfied with their Phase One chip stacks, they can try again in multiple $109 tournaments, but can only take their highest stack with them to the Final Phase. For a simpler path to the Final, you can buy-in directly for $675. Those who do will receive a 200,000 chip stack, added manually after registering under the Live Events tab. $1 million WPT Caribbean qualifiers Players can also score an entry into the $5,000 buy-in WPT Caribbean via special qualifiers. Start for as little as $11 and climb the ladder until reaching the $530 Main Event satellite, which guarantees 5 x $5,000 seats. Additionally, the site plans to give away an extra seat for every $5,000 in the prize pool over the original $25,000 guarantee. Players will start with a 30,000 Main Event chip stack with blinds that increase every 60 minutes. $1 million CPP Giveaway promotion Partypoker is awarding even more seats to the CPP through its $1 million Caribbean Poker Party leaderboard giveaway. The site will hand out 10 x $6,000 seats every week during the promotion to the top 10 players who earn the most points on the CPP giveaway leaderboard. Players can earn points by playing in the site’s Power Series and Powerfest events that feature buy-ins of $109 or more. Low stakes players won’t be left out either, and can win tickets worth up to $1,050 for participating in $5.50 to $55 buy-in Power Series and Powerfest tournaments. The leaderboard promo will run until November 14 and make up just a fraction of the 300 x $6,000 packages the site will give away in total.
Every week The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings #5-Ranked ‘Sheater’ Has Huge Week, Passes $9 Million One week after fellow countryman ‘lena900’ crossed the $8 million mark, Sweden’s #3-ranked player ‘Sheater’ did him one better and sped past the $9 million lifetime earnings milestone. The former Worldwide #1 (currently ranked #5 in the world) absolutely shattered the high money mark with his runner-up finish in Event #12 of the PokerStars High Rollers Series ($2,100 No Limit Hold’em) for $77,405. In addition to the cash, the score also brought ‘Sheater’ over 480 PLB points, bringing him dangerously close to overtaking Brazil’s Joao Simao in the Worldwide rankings, now only trailing him by less than 40 points. The score was part of a solid week for ‘Sheater’ that included four final tables and just over $100,000 in earnings. The next step for the Swede is a step-by-step uphill climb to joining the prestigious $10 million club. ’nilsef’ Puts $6 Million In The Rearview Mirror German grinder ‘nilsef’ rocketed past the $6 million lifetime earnings mark this week by putting in a massive amount of volume and posting a string of seemingly non-stop results. The exact tournament that helped him make the mark was his first-place finish in the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold’em on November 30 for $4,491. While for many, even for ‘nilsef’, $4,491 is a solid score, the #1-ranked German player had himself a fantastic week by taking home massive five-figure scores in two of the recent PokerStars High Rollers. The first was a runner-up finish in Event #5 ($1,050 No Limit Hold’em) for $30,700 and then less than a week later, once again. finishing in second during Event #14 ($1,050+R No Limit Hold’em) for another $49,600. ‘nilsef’ recorded 66 cashes this week, including five outright victories in over 25 final tables. $5 Million Lifetime Badge For Jonatan 'Pot4teUS' Hellman Like ‘Sheater’ before him, Jonatan 'Pot4teUS' Hellman, yet another Top 10 Swedish beast, passed a major milestone when he took 14th place in the PokerStars $1,050 Super Tuesday for $3,666 and passed the $5 million in lifetime earnings. Currently sitting in the Top 20 Worldwide (#18), Hellman kept busy at the online tables taking in 12 four-figure scores this week and amassing total earnings of over $33,000. ’proudflop’ Enters Top Half of Top-100, ‘kofi89’ Scratches Top-25 The UK’s Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot continues to march into the upper echelon of the Worldwide Top 100, making one of the largest leaps of the week, right into the top half of the rankings, currently sitting at #41. Joining him in making major moves is Argentina’s #1-ranked player, ‘kofi89’. Just last week we announced his surpassing the $2 million lifetime mark, this week he enters the Top 25 in the Worldwide rankings. His upwards move is in part to his victory in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for $23,355 and 363.32 PLB Points. In addition, eight others reached new career highs in the PocketFives.com Worldwide Top 100 rankings.
