If you can get your head around qualifying for a live poker event four months in advance, there is a very good reason for playing at Intertops Poker this week.
If, like me, you have just got over Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday – and your partner is already badgering you about who to send Christmas cards – you may not have much headspace left to think about playing poker in the Caribbean next spring. However, if you can put your domestic chores to one side, it could be worth your while taking an interest in Intertops Poker´s latest promotion.
Starting today, Intertops Poker is running a steps promotion that culminates in a tournament final on Sunday 9th December. The winner of the tournament final will win a package to the $250,000 guaranteed WSOPC Caribbean Main Event in March 2019 that includes the Main Event buy-in, accommodation for two at the luxurious and all-inclusive Sonesta Maho Beach Resort in St. Maarten, a free $100 chip to buy into a cash game at the casino, and a contribution towards travel costs.
When I heard about this promotion, I thought to myself, “well, if it´s four months away, there is sure to be another one or two similar promotions before the target event takes place”, and I would probably be right. However, if enough people think like me and wait until the New Year to take advantage of a similar promotion, the likelihood is this one is going to be easier to win than one that takes place in February or early March. That´s why it could be very worthwhile taking an interest in this promotion.
How the WSOPC Caribbean Steps Promotion Works
If you are already a regular at Intertops Poker, you will be familiar with the structure of the site´s steps promotions. The first step consists of a twice daily Stage 1 tournament with a buy-in of $3.30. This guarantees one seat into a daily Stage 2 tournament, which can also be bought into directly for $11.00. The winner of the Stage 2 tournament books their place in the tournament final on 9th December.
On the day before the tournament final, there is also a Last Chance Wild West satellite with a buy-in of $2.20. This satellite offers the cheapest route into the next day´s final, but it is a bit risky to leave it this late, as the game is played in hyper-turbo format with unlimited re-entries allowed during late registration period. One person will be lucky and win their seat for the tournament final, but for everyone else that doesn´t qualify in advance, the direct buy-in for Sunday´s final is $110.00.
If you subsequently win the tournament final, you are in for a real treat. The Sonesta Maho Beach Resort is currently undergoing extensive renovations following the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma in September 2017. When it reopens in February, it will be completely refitted with a new modern layout, a new schedule of resort activities, and the latest in casino comfort. Players attending the WSOPC Caribbean in March will be among the first to stay there and your stay will include:
- Five nights for two in a Premier Double Room.
- All the food you can eat, and all the drink you can drink.
- $600 towards your travel expenses (paid into your account).
- The $1,700 buy-in for the $250,000 guaranteed WSOPC Main Event.
- Free $100 chip to buy into any cash game during your stay.
- Guaranteed sunshine and hospitality from the Team Intertops.
