What’s your ideal poker vacation? If you’re like a lot of people, you dream of winning the World Series of Poker Main Event, claiming millions in prize money, and donning that coveted gold bracelet.

But if you’re like a lot of people, you know that the World Series of Poker can be grueling. We’re talking about grinding the tables in the middle of the desert (thank goodness for air conditioning) in hopes of making it through to the next day. Vegas seems amazing, but after 14-hour days or longer, you’ll likely have no energy to engage in any of the sin that Sin City is famous for. You’ll need your sleep for the next day. But even though it’s grueling, we get that it’s the world’s biggest poker tournament for a reason. We also get that lots of players prefer something more low key where your chances of winning the title are one in 600, not one in 7,000.

If you’re one of those players, you’ll be all over the Punta Cana Poker Classic. Unlike Vegas, it’s casual and laid back, with food served directly on the tournament floor, a beach right outside your door, all-inclusive food and beverages (including alcohol), golf, access to a spa, legendary restaurants (all free), and so much more.

So which poker adventure is up your alley? Grinding it out in the middle of the desert where you’re on your own for food and relaxation? Or going all in beachside — where we’ll take care of your food, beverages, entertainment, and more?

Rather than forcing you to make the call and choose a satellite in advance, at Americas Cardroom we’ve got WSOP PCPC satellites running every Sunday. There’s one at 6pm ET, which guarantees two $12,500 packages, and one at 8pm ET, which guarantees one $12,500 package.

Each includes your choice of a WSOP Main Event package or two Punta Cana Poker Classic packages. Opt for the WSOP and you’ll score the $10,000 buy-in plus money for travel and accommodations. Opt for the PCPC package and you’ll score two Main Event buy-ins, $2,700 cash, all-inclusive food and drinks for four, and all kinds of stuff poker players dream about. This year’s Punta Cana Poker Classic takes place at The Level section of the 5-Star Melia Caribe Tropical and it promises to be unlike anything else.

Yes, we’ve definitely pumped up the Punta Cana Poker Classic package, but hey, we’re a bit biased. After all, we’ve been sending players to paradise for years. We’ve also sent lots of ACR players to Vegas, and we know the WSOP is a big deal. So the choice is yours.

Each Sunday, WSOP PCPC satellites cost just $50+5 to get into. You can also earn your seat through The Beast and Sit & Crush weekly leaderboards, so claim your spot and we’ll see you in poker paradise — whatever your paradise might be.
