Better than the Hard Rock -- the Punta Cana Poker Classic Off to Great Start
Online poker players living the dream at the Punta Cana Poker Classic agree: the move to the new location was a good idea! Better food… closer to the beach… and the new Poker 2.0 game rocks!
We arrived yesterday afternoon just as the players were sitting down to the Main Event, Day 1a – everyone excited and hoping they’ll be the one take home the big prize. Like Luis Yepez did last year. He took home more than $185k!
This year the Punta Cana Poker Classic moved from the Hard Rock to the Melia Caribe Tropicale – a wise move, according to a couple of regulars. “I never thought we could do better than the Hard Rock, but this place is really nice,” said Steven Schillenberg, who’s been playing this event for eight or nine years, since it began in Costa Rica.
“The new game that they have, the 2.0, it’s actually really, really good,” said Steve Lets, another player from the trusted US poker room who’s been coming to this event for many years. “I’m really getting into it! I think the more you play it you’ll enjoy it even more.
