Qualify For The 2013 PCA; 10 Packages To Be Given Away Every Week! 0001

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!
