The Caribbean Poker Party (CPP) from partypoker will now take place online in mid-November.
The annual live stop that takes place in the gorgeous Caribbean island nation of The Bahamas has been canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Consultant for parent company GVC, Rob Yong, had first taken to Twitter to confirm the event was moving online a few days prior to this announcement, saying that the venue, Baha Mar, would not be reopening in time for the event to run.
The Main Event will carry a $5 million guarantee with a buy-in of $5300. Day 1A will commence with the start of the series on November 15 and Day 1B will take place a week later. Days 2 and 3 of the event will take place on November 23 and 24 respectively, and a winner will be crowned on November 25 when the Final Table takes place
The complete schedule for the CPP has yet to be published.
Partypoker passport holders can buy-in rake free to the CPP. Those that won their seats into the CPP can use it for MILLIONS Online or keep it for when the event runs next year, whenever that may be.
Registration for Phase 1 qualifiers is already open.
The Caribbean Poker Party will now run online November 15 to 24, 2020.
In the meantime, players can get excited for the return of the low-stakes Monster Series, slated to start on October 25. Again, details remain scarce but looking at last years event, total guarantees around the $2 million mark can be expected.
Recently, we also saw the conclusion of the audacious WPT World Online Championships (WOC). The series ran over 68 days, attracting 285,000 entrants and paying out $100 million in prize money.
Nine of the players at the WOC Main Event final table made their way into the event via satellites; having turned small buy-ins into a coveted seat at the $10 million guaranteed event.
Phil Mighall took the title and the $1,550,298 first place prize. Despite the Main Event not being won by a satellite qualifier, over 45,605 tournament seats were won via the satellite route, with 19,655 unique players qualifying that way.
And if that wasn’t all, partypoker has also been investing into its daily tournaments with a new Boosted Daily Legends schedule that has seen partypoker plow in an extra $400,000 to proceedings.
