Punta Cana Poker Classic

Gambling911.com will be attending next month’s Punta Cana Poker Classic (November 10 thru 14) in what promises to be one of the most exciting poker tournaments of the year.

A full slate of attendees has not officially been announced as of yet, however, the Brunson 10 and Mr. Doyle Brunson himself will be in attendance.  (learn more about DoylesRoom.com here)

The event will take place at the fabulous Moon Palace Hotel & Casino in beautiful Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Our friends at Bookmaker.com, True Poker and Cake Poker will all be participating in this event.

Gambling911.com’s Jenny Woo will be on hand conducting interviews.

One problem, flights are going fast.  In fact, much of the flights going through Miami that week now require an overnight stay in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  Prices were starting to go through the roof so we suggesting booking now. 

Traveling through New York, Jetblue had a direct round trip for Tuesday November 9 through Monday November 15 for just $638 but that price was expected to be for a very limited time and might not last come Monday (October 18).  A nonstop via Continental, by comparison, will cost almost $828.

There were a few flights left via Charlotte on USAir. 

Through Las Vegas, you are looking at paying close to $1000 and up on these days round trip.  Leave on the 8th you are looking at paying closer to $800.

Your best bet leaving from New York, Boston and other locales would likely be to leave on Monday.  Watch for continuing Punta Cana Poker Classic coverage here at Gambling911.com. – Ace King reporting for Gambling911.com
