Punta Cana Classic Starts This weekend!

The party at Punta Cana has already started with the organizers stating that all 82 players have arrived and are getting ready to get down to business. The lucky package winners of the $5,000 packages that were offered by many online poker rooms during the summer are gearing up for a great event on the sun kissed island of the Dominican Republic. Great poker rooms such as Bovada and Americas Cardroom sent players packing on a flight headed for poker paradise. The main event is a cool $500,000 guaranteed and we'll keep you updated on the action. This event is rapidly becoming a favorite on the live tourney circuit and satellites are sure to be up and running pretty soon for next year. The 82 package winners are just a fraction of the amount of players that will be there, as many pros and semi pros had already bought in to the event during the course of the year. It's the third year on the bounce it's been held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, where the lucky 82 won a lot more than their buy-in. With six nights accommodation, all you can eat and drink and $1,500 worth of credit at the resort, we are sure that there are going to be a few very happy poker players on the island right now. Last years winner took home over $136K, and probably one hell of a hangover. The party has started and good luck to them all.
