Sites on the Winning Poker Network are guaranteeing five $4,900 packages for the Punta Cana Poker Classic in each Sunday´s $55.00 buy-in Beast Tournament.
The Punta Cana Poker Classic is one of the most relaxed live poker events of the year. Hosted at the gorgeous Melia Caribe Tropical Resort in the Dominican Republic, players have the choice of chilling out on the beach or taking part in a huge range of activities before heading into a fresh and spacious poker room to tackle the serious business of the day.
Now in its eighth year, the Punta Cana Poker Classic 2017 schedule consists of thirteen tournaments, a stack of cash action and live Sit & Go 2.0 games between October 24th and 30th. The highlight of the schedule is the $500,000 Main Event, and you can win your seat in the Main Event, your hotel accommodation and lots more by playing in the Winning Poker Network´s weekly Beast Tournament.
WPN´s Weekly Beast Tournament
Since August 2012, sites on the Winning Poker Network (Americas Cardroom, Ya Poker, Black Chip Poker and True Poker) have been running a weekly rake race-style promotion for cash game players called the “Beast”. Loosely explained, about a third of the rake deducted from cash game pots goes to feed the Beast prize pool, and players are awarded points for the contribution they make to the rake.
The points add up on a Beast leaderboard and, at the end of each week (Saturday to Friday), tens of thousands of dollars are distributed in cash prizes and tournament entry tickets. The tournament entry tickets are for a special “Beast Tournament” played each Sunday at 6:00pm (ET) that guarantees entries into larger online and live events. The tournament can also be bought into directly for $55.00.
For the next eighteen weeks, the Beast Tournament will guarantee a minimum of five packages to the Punta Cana Poker Classic. These packages include the buy-in to the Main Event, six nights´ accommodation for two at the Melia Caribe Tropical Resort on an all-inclusive basis, free golf throughout your stay and (not mentioned in the video below) $800 towards your travel expenses.
Always Dead Chips in Beast Tournaments
If you would like to play in the Punta Cana Poker Classic, the Winning Poker Network´s Beast Tournament is probably the easiest qualifier you will find. This is not because the standard of play at the Winning Poker Network is of a poor standard but because of the number of players apparently sitting out of the tournament. There is a reason for this.
Entry tickets for the Beast tournament are issued automatically to hundreds of players who are unable to play at 6:00pm on Sundays evenings, or who have no interest in live poker, and there are always dead chips on the tables. This means that, whether you qualify for the tournament via the Beast leaderboard competition or buy-in directly, there is plenty of value to be had in this qualifier.
Will You be the Next Eduards Kudriacevs?
Last year, Latvian player Eduards Kudriacevs beat a field of 466 players to take home the first prize of $143,675 in the Punta Cana Poker Classic Main Event. This year the Winning Poker Network is aiming to send more than one hundred players to the event. For an investment of $55.00, you could be the next Eduards Kudriacevs; or, if you don´t win the Main Event, you are guaranteed to have a lot of fun trying.
The Punta Cana Poker Classic may be over four months away, but there is no better time than the present to book your package to the event. Certainly, while the World Series of Poker is still underway, a lot of your fiercest competition for a Punta Cana package will be otherwise engaged. So visit a site on the Winning Poker Network today and start dreaming of a luxury Caribbean adventure in the fall.
