The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is 10 years old in 2013 and to celebrate PokerStars is going to be guaranteeing a minimum of 100 PCA Main Event packages will be won between now and Dec. 9!
The inaugural PCA Main Event took place back in 2004 when the PCA was actually a World Poker Tour event that took place aboard a luxury cruise ship. Gus Hansen won that tournament, taking home $455,780 after outlasting a 221-strong field. Since then the Main Event has gone from strength-to-strength and has paid out more than $15 million to the Main Event champions!

Each Sunday, until Dec. 9, PokerStars is running a qualifier that only costs $10 to enter yet guarantees at least 10 PCA Main Event packages! Each package is worth $16,000 and consists of:
- 2013 PCA Main Event buy-in
- Hotel accommodation at the luxurious Atlantis resort
- $1,099 spending money
Each of these $10 satellites kicks off at 13:00 ET (18:00GMT) and sees each player start with a generous 3,000 starting stack who will then play to the tried and tested 15-minute PokerStars blind structure.
If your bankroll will not stretch to the $10 buy-in then fear not, because PokerStars are hosting a plethora of feeder satellites that cost just $0.10 to enter, meaning there really is no excuse not to try and qualify for this historical event. Also, do not forget that you can also take advantage of the PokerNews PCA Satellite, dubbed the Deadline Turbo, that will start at 12:30ET (17:30GMT) on Nov. 4 that guarantees 200 seats to the PCA 10th Anniversary Weekly Final.
