Earlier this week, Bovada Poker announced its Punta Cana Poker Classic Promotion. This promotion allows players the chance to win one of 15 $5,500 prize Packages to Punta Cana including a seat in the Poker Classic at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. All they have to do is play in one of the many qualifying events for as little as $0.44 or buy-in directly to a satellite for $270.
Well Bovada Poker has just made your chance at travelling to Punta Casa even easier with the bubble boy playoff! Get a one-in-five chance if you miss out on your first try. That’s right, the bubble boy from each of the five final satellites will get the chance to battle it out for their own exclusive Punta Casa Prize Package worth over $3,800.
The player who just misses out on a $5,500 Punta Casa Prize Package in each of the satellites (or as it is commonly called – the bubble boy) will get another chance to win. The fourth-place finisher from each of the five satellites will go on to play each other for an exclusive Punta Casa Prize Package on October 15, 2014 at 9:05 PM ET.
Here’s what the $3,830 prize includes:
- A $1,650 buy-in to the Main Event
- Six nights’ accommodation at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino (November 4 to 10)
- Transport to and from Punta Cana International Airport
- All-inclusive food and drinks
- Bovada swag
Players will automatically be issued a tournament ticket to the special bubble boy tournament within 48 hours after they place 4th in one of the Punta Cana Poker Classic satellites, and will also be contacted by Bovada Poker within that time frame by telephone. Any cash prize won by any of the 5 players in the initial satellite will be used towards travel to the Dominican Republic. There will be no cash value for this prize, and it is a must-play event.
The online tournament series will run for a total of 10 weeks from August to October. Qualifiers start on Monday, August 3 and run until the conclusion of the series. The first of five bi-weekly PCPC satellites will run on Sunday, August 17 with the last running on Monday October 13. Each satellite will have a buy-in of $250 + $20 and will guarantee 3 seats to the live event in. Buy-ins for the qualifiers will start from $0.44 to $55 last chance qualifiers. There will also offer regular, turbo and sit and go tournaments.
