Americas Cardroom Packs Tournament Schedule with Daily Freerolls for Punta Cana

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic – With less than three months before the start of the Punta Cana Poker Classic, Americas Cardroom is going all out to get more players to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in the Dominican Republic to play for a piece of $500k. The US-friendly online poker site today announced daily freerolls and nightly satellites to help online poker players win their way to the November 11th tournament for free.

"Our goal is to make this year's Punta Cana Poker Classic the biggest event yet, and we think freerolls will be a great way to get more players to the tables, not to mention the beach," stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. "We really encourage anyone who hasn't tried Americas Cardroom to grab the software and jump into a freeroll. There's literally nothing to lose."

Every day at 1pm ET, Americas Cardroom is hosting a Punta Cana Poker Classic freeroll, which costs nothing to get into. At least five seats will be given away to a nightly 7:15pm ET satellite. The $4+0.40 nightly satellite feeds into a bi-weekly guaranteed event where two Punta Cana Poker Classic packages are on the line. Players who don't win their seat in the 2-package guaranteed event through a freeroll or satellite can buy directly in for $125+12.50

Each $4,100 package includes one Main Event buy-in, 6-night hotel accommodations for one, all-you-can-handle food and drinks (alcohol included), a $1,500 resort credit, 24-hour premium room service, a welcome gift bag, airport-hotel-airport transportation in Punta Cana, $800 for travel, access to a 24/7 VIP support line, and more.

Entering its fourth year, the Punta Cana Poker Classic tournament takes place at the Vegas-style Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Dominican Republic from November 11th through 17th with a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000.

Unlike previous Caribbean tournaments hosted by other poker networks where online poker players had to purchase expensive food and alcohol, the Punta Cana Poker Classic awards Americas Cardroom winners with a bracelet that gives them access to unlimited food and beverages 24/7. Hotel rooms are well stocked with beer and liquor, room service is available whenever poker players crave it, and over a dozen restaurants and delis are ready to cater to package winners.
