Friday July 26,2013 : NEW LIVE POKER TOURNAMENT LAUNCHED
Will Hill and iPoker majors supporting new Caribbean Poker Tour
Live poker fans will have another well-funded tournament in the tropics following the announcement this week that major online poker providers iPoker Network and William Hill Poker are supporting the new Caribbean Poker Tour.
The first outing for the tourney will be November 8 to 14 this year on the St. Maarten and Punta Cana Caribbean islands, with supporting poker rooms running qualifiers and satellites in addition to funding winner packages.
The main events in the tournament will carry a buy-in of $1,500 in Punta Cana and slightly more at $1,650 in St. Maarten. A multitude of side events and cash games are also planned, hosted by top professional Tobias Reinkemeier.
The organisers – Thomas Kremser, Leon Groenewoud, and Alex Teufel at ICU Events – have sensibly scheduled the new tourney to coincide with the World Poker Tour Caribbean leg, which will please many professional players.
The company founders have wide experience in the field, and have provided a one-stop website where players can finalise all their arrangements.
