The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) is on our doorstep, and it is time to be sure you get your seat. This huge 10-day live poker festival has 45 events and runs from January 7-16, 2011. The main event is a monster $10,300 buy-in, 6 day tournament. Pokerstars is offering satellites to this live event at  the fabulous Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.

With 45 events, you will find a game and stakes you will like. See the schedule posted below to get more details of the exact events.

The PCA main event has evolved over the years. Started in 2004 it was a World Poker Tour (WPT) event that took place on a luxury cruise ship visiting Miami, Florida, Jamaica, Mexico and the Cayman Islands and had 221 players. In 2005 it was moved to the Atlantis resort in The Bahamas more then doubling in size to 461 players. It has continued to grow with 1,347 players in 2009 and a giant field of 1,529 in 2010. In 2010 Harrison Gimbel from the USA, took home the first place prize of  $2,200,000.

If you don’t have an extra $10,300 for the buy-in, all is not lost. PokerStars is offering tons of satellites to get you in the game on the cheap.
