Play for your share of $250,000 in The Bahamas!
The PokerStars Canada Cup I is a new event that brings together the best online poker players in the region to compete for a seat at the live final table in The Bahamas, held at the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA)! Make it to the final nine and you’ll be heading to Paradise Island to play for a share of $250,000 in cash, plus the title of Canada Cup champion, and entry into the PCA High Rollers event, worth an additional $25,000!
The action starts online where from September 26 you can qualify for the $530 online final. Satellites are running across a huge range of buy-ins, starting from just $0.50.
You can locate all PokerStars Canada Cup I qualifiers under the Tourney > Regional tab.
The PokerStars.net Canada Cup Final takes place at 17:30 ET on Sunday October 23, with a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool! The best Canadian players and Team PokerStars Pros will be taking part, and the action will play out as standard until a final table of nine is reached. At this point the tournament will pause, and resume in the Bahamas during the PCA, on January 10, 2012.
Live: Final Table
All players who make the final nine will receive an expenses paid package to the Bahamas, with flights, luxurious hotel accommodation and spending money thrown in.
Starting stacks for the final table will be exactly as they were when the online final was paused. This means you don’t want to treat the online final as a satellite – the more chips you accumulate, the greater advantage you’ll have in the Bahamas.
The final table will be filmed live for television and has a $250,000 prize pool. The winner will also be awarded the PokerStars Canada Cup trophy and entry into the PCA High Roller Event, worth $25,000.
