Win 2012 Punta Cana Packages at Americas Cardroom
By RTR Dennis
What’s not to love about beautiful beaches, vibrant nightlife, unparalleled weather, luxurious resorts, and huge poker tournaments that offer a small fortune? This accurately describes what players will experience at the 2012 Punta Cana Classic, and here are some important details on this Americas Cardroom sponsored tournament:
- Where: Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
- When: October 12th-18th
- Prize Pool: $500,000 Guaranteed
If the sandy, white beaches and excellent weather don’t grab your attention, then the $500k guaranteed prize pool might interest you in some way. Assuming this is the case, you should know that Americas Cardroom is giving out $5,000 prize packages to their flagship live tournament. Those who win a $5k package will experience the following perks:
- $1,500 + $150 Main Event buy-in
- 6 nights of hotel accommodations at the 5-star Hard Rock Hotel
- Up to $800 in airfare
- Ground transportation in Punta Cana
- 24-hour room service
- $1,500 to spend on resort services of your choosing (golf, spa, gift shop, etc.)
- A welcome gift bag
Bring a Friend
Even though prize package winners will be on their own in the Main Event, they’ll have a friend along for the ride. That’s because each $5k prize package includes accommodation for you and another person of your choice. This way, when you're not playing poker you won’t have to find yourself dancing in nightclubs alone or golfing solo at Hard Rock!
How to Win
Okay so the prize packages sound great, right? Now you just have to solve the problem of winning a package, which can be done through the various Punta Cana satellites at Americas Cardroom. Here are the satellites that are currently running:
$0.50 Hourly Punta Cana – Runs every hour, one $50 + $1 Nightly satellite seat guaranteed.
$50 + $1 Nightly Punta Cana – Runs at 8pm, one seat guaranteed for the $5k prize package satellite.
$250 + $50 Punta Cana $5k Package – Two of these satellites will run with one on June 10th and one on June 24th, at least one $5k prize package is guaranteed per satellite.
