The Caribbean Poker Party. Four words guaranteed to excite any poker player. It’s not just the glittering array of fantastic tournaments dripping with millions and millions of guaranteed dollars on the schedule, though that certainly helps. It’s the fact that, each year, the CPP gives players the chance to go for a ten-day holiday spectacular in the beautiful Caribbean sun, lighting up the November gloom with incredibly luxurious hospitality and wondrous entertainment.
For those that haven’t been lucky enough to play the CPP before, partypoker thought it would be a good idea to send successful American pro Jonathan Little to this year’s Caribbean Poker Party venue, the Baha Mar in the Bahamas, so he and his wife could check out the location and report back to you, the players, on what he found. We showed you the first part of Little’s vlog last week, but he’s back with his second update from Caribbean poker paradise. Check it out below:
Little has amassed nearly $6.8 million in live tournament winnings, with a duo of WPT titles for triumphs in the 2008 Foxwoods World Poker Finals and in the Mirage Poker Showdown. Those victories each earned him over seven figures. Last November, he was at the partypoker LIVE Caribbean Poker Party in Punta Cana and finished second in the $10,300 MILLIONS High Roller for $175,000.
He’s been a tournament circuit regular for over ten years, racking up 139 live cashes at the last count, as well as writing a dozen poker books and creating a well-respected blog about the game. Basically, the guy knows his onions.
So when he says that the Baha Mar seems like pretty much the perfect place to enjoy an incredible poker festival combined with an amazing holiday, we’re inclined to listen to the man.
If you want to join Jonathan and thousands of fellow poker players in the Bahamas this November, online PP LIVE Dollar satellites are running now on partypoker. Anyone can buy in to MILLIONS World or the CPP Main Event using their PP LIVE Dollars. In case you haven’t heard about them, PP LIVE Dollars are a flexible, player-friendly currency that can be won in satellites on partypoker, and used to pay for event buy-ins, travel, hotels and even visas.
Two highlights of the Caribbean Poker Party schedule will be the $10 million guaranteed Main Event and the new $25,500 MILLIONS World tournament, which also boasts a $10M guarantee. The incredible schedule of events in the Bahamas also includes a $250,000 buy-in Super High Roller Championship, a $10,300 High Roller event, plus tournaments in PLO, Mix-Max, Win The Button, and 6-Max formats.
If a ten-day festival of sun, fun and pool parties in the Bahamas this November sounds good to you, then make sure you join Jonathan at the Baha Mar for the Caribbean Poker Party!
