May 09, 2016 – The desert? Or the beach? Starting Sunday, May 15th, poker players get to make the call. Americas Cardroom today announced WSOP/PCPC Satellites. Every weekend between May 15th and June 24th, Americas Cardroom is holding two Sunday satellites with three total packages guaranteed.

PCPC or WSOP?

The winner of each tournament can choose one WSOP Main Event package or two all-inclusive packages for this year’s Punta Cana Poker Classic.

“Whether you like to grind the tables in the desert or prefer an unforgettable poker vacation in paradise, we’ve got you covered with WSOP PCPC satellites,” said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “While those who end up cashing in the WSOP will enjoy their trip, we know from experience that everyone who ends up going to the Punta Cana Poker Classic will have a great time. Ultimately, it’s up to the player.”

The WSOP/PCPC satellites take place every Sunday night. The 6pm ET tournament guarantees two $12,500 packages while the 8pm ET tournament guarantees one package. Both tournaments cost $50+5 to get into.

This year’s Punta Cana Poker Classic takes place this October at the luxurious Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Players will have exclusive access to a private section of the hotel known as The Level, complete with private restaurants, pools and beach.

Players who opt for the Punta Cana package after winning a satellite will receive two prize packages totaling $12,500. Each one includes the Main Event buy-in to the $500,000 GTD Main Event, a $300 satellite seat for the High Roller tournament, double occupancy, and all-inclusive access for two. With two packages included for the PCPC, winners will essentially get a trip for four to paradise, with Main Event buy-ins for two. Also included in the package is $2,700 cash.

Those who opt for the World Series of Poker Main Event this summer in Vegas will win a $12,500 package that includes the $10,000 Main Event buy-in to the world’s richest poker tournament and $2,500 for travel and accommodations.
