Americas CardRoom Says bye to Punta Cana Poker Classic, hello to Live Cage. After eight successful years, the Punta Cana Poker Classic in the Dominican Republic has decided to close its doors. Flagship sponsor, Americas CardRoom , has searched for an alternative for their players and come up with something big.
The Punta Cana Poker Classic offered US online poker players a great opportunity to connect with players in a real-world setting. And while the door has closed for one land-based destination, another is just opening.
Americas CardRoom is turning their attention to their own backyard in San Jose, Costa Rica. That’s where they will host the Live Cage five times this year, starting in March. The Live Cage last two days and is based on their online cash game in tournament format that runs every Wednesday.
While the Punta Cana Poker Classic was suitable for families, The Live Cage is geared toward singles who want to get a little crazy. The event takes place at the popular Taormina Hotel in San Jose.
Players looking to win their way into The Live Cage can do so every Sunday (6pm ET) at Americas CardRoom. For $55, players can buy into a Beast and Sit & Crush Live Cage Satellite. Those who rank on the Beast or Sit & Crush weekly leader boards can win their satellite seat for free.
The weekly satellite awards three $8,000 guaranteed Live Cage packages. Each includes the $5,250 buy-in, up to 3 nights hotel accommodations, $800 in airfare and $1,000 spending cash.
Package winners can choose to attend any of the remaining Live Cage events in 2018. The packages are must-play as they cannot be redeemed for cash and are non-transferable.
