Blackjack Added To PCA Roster

Thursday, 24 December 2015

Organisers of the forthcoming PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) have confirmed that the forthcoming tournament series is to feature its first ever blackjack event.

The 2016 edition of the 100-event PCA will take place from January 6 to 14 at the Atlantis At Paradise Island Resort And Casino near Nassau, The Bahamas, while its inaugural blackjack game will feature a guaranteed prize pool of at least $100,000. In addition to cash, the winner is to receive a seat into the $5,300 buy-in January 8 main event where they could potentially walk away with a top prize of up to $1.4 million.

The PCA’s blackjack contest will take place on January 8 using a shootout format. Each table will feature six players competing at 15 hands with the top performer in each subsequently advancing to the next round while claiming a cash prize of at least $1,000.

This format will continue for three rounds until an ultimate champion is crowned and the lion's share of the remaining $70,000 prize pool is divvied up.

“We are very excited to host our first ever live blackjack tournament,” said Edgar Stuchly, Live Events Director for PCA sponsor PokerStars.

“Blackjack players are used to pitting themselves against the house but they will now be able to pit themselves against other players in a $100,000 guaranteed blackjack tournament.”
