Punta Cana Poker Classic

60 players remained at the first annual Punta Cana Poker Classic at the fabulous Hard Rock Casino and Hotel in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  The event itself drew 203 people total, Gambling911.com has confirmed. 

With a $1000 buy-in, some 16 individuals will ultimately cash out in the event with the top prize being just over $60,000.

The 3 day Texas Hold’em poker event originally had a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000 USD.  Players from a number of countries are taking part in the event.

The venue is taking place at a 1950-room sprawling all-inclusive resort with top shelf alcohol, the finest restaurants (with varying themes), free telephone service to the United States and elsewhere, and a casino with one of the most amazing sportsbooks.
