Punta Cana’s Hard Rock Hotel to Host Poker Party this Fall



From 19th-26th November, Punta Cana’s Hard Rock Hotel and Casino will enjoy a schedule of events and poker tournaments as part of partypoker’s Caribbean Poker Party.

The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is described as one of the best casinos in the Caribbean, and the idyllic setting is sure to provide a memorable backdrop for competing players and their families.

With a total jackpot of $2 million you’d be forgiven for thinking that this is a tournament exclusive to the professionals, but that’s far from the truth with satellites for the tournament available from just $0.01 and a number of buy-ins ($109 or $1,050) throughout the qualifying stages.

It’s not all about the poker though, because as well as winning your way into one of the biggest poker tournaments of the season and trying your skills against some of the best in the industry, you’ll also be able to spend time soaking up the sun and immersing yourself in the luxury of this impressive resort which plays host to a huge number of famous faces throughout the year. Alongside the poker tournaments, the hotel will also be offering evening parties, excursions and activities such as water polo and volleyball throughout the week to ensure that guests enjoy a varied escape.

To get yourself on the guest list for this impressive, fun-filled tournament, there are a few steps to come first. Each week, the players who finish on partypoker’s top 10 leaderboard for the tournament will grab themselves a $6,000 package which includes:

“$1,000 toward the flight, tournament buy-in for the partypoker Million, all-inclusive accommodation, food and beverages at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana”

There is also the chance to sell or transfer a package should you be lucky enough to win more than one.

To get onto the leaderboard the partypoker site says you’ll need to:

“play any Power Series tournament with a buy-in of $109* or more to get on the leaderboards. The more you play, the more points you earn, and the higher you climb. Every Monday a new Leaderboard will start, giving you 10 chances to bag a prize package!”
