Fish and Chips but no mushy peas at the PCA

Fish and Chips but no mushy peas at the PCA

Friday, 26 November 2010

Now the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is probably second only to the World Series of Poker in the sheer amount of scope and different types of events on offer but they are really – ahem, bad pun ahead – pushing the boat out – sorry – here with a new “Fish and Chips” event.

"I jumped at the chance to play such an unusual and unique event,” said Chris Moneymaker, Team PokerStars Pro. “Most poker tournaments take place indoors, which is fine, but I can't imagine a better way to enjoy paradise than to go fishing on the Caribbean Sea and follow that with poker action at the tables.”

The $2,300 buy-in to the event is divided into the fishing derby ($400); the poker derby ($900) and the overall champion ($1,000). Players are fishing within a 50-mile radius of Paradise Island’s Marina and the champion will be declared after a third of fishing and two thirds of poker.

You can qualify for this event on PokerStars; they are giving away $3,425 packages to the events that include flights and accommodation for two nights at the PCA. Of course you can also acquire a Main Event seat or $15,000 package via the same satellite system.
