ESPN has announced that same-day coverage will be provided of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) final table on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com.
On Saturday, January 15, at 5 p.m. ET, ESPN3 will televise the PCA final table in HD on a one-hour tape delay. At 10 p.m. ET, ESPN2 will join the unedited simulcast, and the sister-stations will follow the hottest tournament on the planet down to a winner.
“So much happens in poker that never makes it to the final TV edit, but this will show exactly how top-level players go about winning a massive tournament,” said Joe Versaci, PokerStars.net North America Regional Marketing Director. “There’s so much money on the line – it’s going to be gripping.”
Last January, it was a 19 year-old American, Harrison Gimbel, who walked away with the $2.2 million grand prize, outlasting a record-breaking field of 1,529 players and becoming the PCA’s youngest champ yet. The 2011 PCA aims to be bigger and better, spreading a whopping 48 events between January 7-16.
Gimbel earned his 2010 PCA seat via a $1,000 live satellite. If you want a shot at the estimated $20 million prize pool in the main event, PokerStars is offering up PCA satellites around the clock. Packages include buy-in to the $10,000 Main Event and accomodations at the beautiful Atlantis Resort & Casino in the Bahamas.
