PartyPoker Kicks Off Caribbean Poker Party Online

One of the many live tournaments to be thrown off schedule this year was the Caribbean Poker Party (CPP). There was no dispute that it was a favorite stop for PartyPoker LIVE because…well…it took place in the Caribbean!

Of course, the CPP also offered numerous High Roller events like the MILLIONS World Bahamas, not to mention a schedule of tournaments to suit many bankrolls. And it all took place at the Baha Mar Casino, a part of a resort in Nassau, Bahamas, on the island of New Providence.

Nine swimming pools.

Golf. Racquetball. Spa. Shops.

Beach. White sand beach. Palm trees.

But come on, everyone was there for the poker, am I right?

For some reason, the Caribbean Poker Party was one of the most difficult to cancel in 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic makes the rules. Like almost every other tournament this year, it was deemed unsafe. Conveniently, though, the CPP’s affiliation with PartyPoker gave it the perfect platform on which to transfer the poker action online.

CPP Online Details

The entire series includes tournaments of all buy-ins, but the main schedule features 10 CPP events. And the guarantees for those primary events exceed $10 million in total.

From November 13 through November 25, players can participate with buy-ins from $55 to $25,500. Each of the 10 CPP events allow for only one reentry, and late registration ends after the ninth level.

Of course, players can find numerous satellites for all of the CPP tournaments. There is a massive Main Event satellite, though, set for Sunday, November 15. The mega-satellite costs $530 (Main Event buy-in is $5,300), but there will be 50 Main Event seats guaranteed, which equals $265K.
