PCA 10th Anniversary Timeline

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure has been one of the most popular live poker events ever since it began in 2004. Originally part of the World Poker Tour (WPT) and held on a cruise ship, the field size seems to get bigger every year, peaking in 2011 when 1,560 runners played the Main Event. It’s now a huge annual poker festival that attracts the best players and hundreds of PokerStars qualifiers from around the world. Highlights include a 3rd place finish for Daniel Negreanu in 2004, a $2,000,000 win for Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier in 2008, followed by a $3,000,000 score for Poorya Nazari in 2010.
