The Winning Poker Network gets a new addition to the family in the shape of Ya Poker, adding to the already impressive list of members that includes Americas Cardroom, Black Chip Poker and True Poker. Ya Poker has a slightly different angle as it will cater more to the Latin American market and will be available in English, Spanish and Portuguese, although it will still offer all of the outstanding promotions that the Winning Poker Network currently offer. Ya Poker players will be offered great WPN promo’s such as the Beast progressive points race, qualification for the Latin Series of Poker, and of course chances to get in on the action at the great Punta Cana Poker Classic.
Michael Harris of WPN stated that, "The Winning Poker Network has earned a great reputation for providing online poker players in North America and Europe with better promotions, fast and feature-rich software, and more opportunities to win," and continued with. "Latin America has an incredible poker community, which we're excited to reach with WPN's special brand of online gaming. We're thrilled to bring Ya Poker to the Latin American market."
Those players who won their seats to the Punta Cana Poker Classic through Americas Cardroom are currently sunning it up in the Caribbean with the main event in full swing. The prize pool for the main event was a guaranteed $500,000 but that’s been well beaten this year and the top 50 players are set to take a share of $712,950. Next year should be even bigger, especially if more skins like Ya Poker keep adding to the Winning Poker Network’s mix.
