PokerStars.net Giving Away 100 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Packages to Celebrate 10th Anniversary

LONDON, Nov. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - PokerStars.net celebrates its 10th anniversary in December and is marking the milestone with an amazing promotion that will award 100 dream trips to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas.

"When I started playing competitive poker in the 1990s it was all live action, very much offline, in home card games or in casinos," says Daniel Negreanu, a Canadian poker player who is one of the sports all-time leading money winners. "Sites like PokerStars.net have made the sport truly global.  Now we have champions from all around the world, poker tours in many countries and millions of hobbyists and professionals playing online.  It has exploded, all in the last 10 years."

The "PokerStars.net 10th Anniversary Giveaway" is a series of freerolls that will enable players to qualify for a weekly final and win one of 100 packages (each worth more than $15,000) to the ninth annual PCA tournament, which takes place from January 5-14, 2012, at Paradise Island, Bahamas.

Each package consists of entry into the $10,000 buy-in Main Event, travel to the Paradise Island in the Bahamas, accommodation at the Atlantis Resort and spending money for the duration of the trip. On top of that, PokerStars.net is also offering 10,000 cash prizes to win along the way.

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is the biggest land-based poker festival outside of Las Vegas, with more than 40 events scheduled to take place in January 2012. The highlight is the $10,000 Main Event, which last year saw a record field of 1,560 players take part in the tournament to create a prize pool of more than $15 million. The winner was Galen Hall, who took home the top prize of $2.3 million.
