Whether it’s the soothing Bahamian waters or the white-knuckle water slides through shark tanks you prefer, the world-class Atlantis resort will once again host the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, one of the most successful poker tournament series outside of Las Vegas, January 6 through January 14. The 35-event event festival doubles as the first stop for the Latin American Poker Tour Season 8.

David Carrion, Director of Live Operations for PCA & LATAM, said, “The PCA is the richest poker festival held outside of Las Vegas and by including the LAPT we can offer players who are used to lower buy-in tournaments the opportunity to experience the Atlantis resort and everything the Bahamas has to offer.”

Familiar events like the $100,000 Super High Roller and the $25,000 High Roller return for the world’s biggest players and fans alike. The $10,000 Main Event won’t be the only the championship event running – a new $3,000 LAPT Main Event with unlimited re-entries kicks off on January 7. View the complete 2015 PCA schedule.

The 2014 PCA made history with the EPT’s longest heads-up match between Dominik Panka and Mike McDonald decided at 6 a.m. while Vanessa Selbst and Ole Schemion also etched their names in the PCA history books by earning the “PCA Triple Crown” – cashing in the $100,000 Super High Roller, Main Event and $25,000 High Roller.

The LAPT Main Event isn’t the only new tournament on the schedule with a Pot Limit Omaha Dealers’ Choice for four or five cards and Crazy Pineapple Limit Hold’em event. Also, there are a couple of “Double Bubble” events where half the field gets their buy-in back but the top 8% receive additional cash prizes and the final event has a winner take all format.
